[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Montour Falls 11-20-2014 by L.L. No. 1-2015. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Pursuant to § 5 of the General Municipal law, the Village Board of the Village of Montour Falls hereby determines that it is in the public interest to permit the acceptance by certain officers of the Village of Montour Falls credit cards as a means of payment of taxes, fees and other charges as set forth in the General Municipal Law § 5.
Words used herein shall have the meanings, if any, ascribed to them in the General Municipal Law § 5.
The Village Board hereby authorizes agreements with one or more financing agencies or card issuers to provide for acceptance, by the Village Clerk-Treasurer, Montour Falls Municipal Marina and Campground Manager, and their designees, of credit cards as a means of payment of taxes, fees, charges, water and sewer bills, financial obligations or other amounts, including penalties, special assessments and interest, owed to the Village of Montour Falls.
The agreements referred to in this chapter shall govern the terms and conditions upon which a credit card proffered as a means of payment of taxes, fees, charges, water and sewer bills, financial obligations or other amounts, including penalties, special assessments and interest, shall be accepted or declined and the manner in and conditions upon which the financing agency or card issuer shall pay to the Village the amounts of the taxes, fees, charges, water and sewer bills, financial obligations or other amounts, including penalties, special assessments and interest, paid by means of a credit card pursuant to such agreement.
The agreements referred to in this chapter shall provide that as a condition for accepting payment by credit card, such person offering payment by credit card shall pay a service or convenience fee to the Village not to exceed the costs incurred by the Village in connection with the credit card payment transaction, including any fee owed by the Village to the financing agency or credit card issuer arising from that transaction.
The underlying debt, lien, obligation, bill, account or other amount owed to the Village for which payment by credit card is accepted by the Village shall not be expunged, cancelled, released, discharged or satisfied, and any receipt or other evidence of payment shall be deemed conditional, until the Village has received final and unconditional payment of the full amount due from the financing agency or card issuer for such credit card transaction.
There may be signage at the Village locations where credit card payments will be accepted for payment of Village fees or taxes which shall state that the Village will make no profit on any credit card surcharge, and that the added fee for credit card usage shall be only to cover the fees charged to the Village by the financing agency or card issuer associated with the credit card usage.
