Long Beach Moves To Make Paying Bills More Convenient By Eliminating FeesRelease Date: 2017-07-12
The inconvenience of the fees attached to paying your Long Beach utility bills online may be on their way out as the city council voted Tuesday night to eliminate the convenience fee for using debit or credit cards and entered into a new contract for the city’s payment processing system.
Kubra America, an Arizona-based company, will take over the city’s payment processing system for an amount that could total over $984,000 annually over the next three years. The contract also allows the city the option to renew for two additional one-year agreements.
Long Beach Financial Management Director John Gross said that it’s not often that he gets to make exciting announcements like this.
