Town OKs card payments

WILTON – Residents will soon be able to pay their taxes or register their car or dog with a credit card.

Cards can’t at this time be used for water or sewer bills, since they are sepa­rate departments in the town budget.

On Sept. 19, the select­board met with Sandra Rowe, president of Inter­ware Development Co., to finalize discussions that have been ongoing for several months. The new service provider, Heart­land, will accept all major credit cards.

Heartland will provide the software and the card swipe machine for the town office.

Town Administrator Scott Butcher will make the final agreements and ensure insurance cover­age.

Signs regarding fees and appropriate signs will be posted.
