In an effort to provide our residents with a higher level of customer service, the Borough of Orwigsburg now accepts credit and debit card payments for water, sewer, and trash service.
The Borough utilizes the services of MuniciPAY with Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, or e-check. Effective October 1, 2016 the user fee of 2.65% or $3.00 will be assessed per transaction, whichever is greater. The fee for e-check is $1.50.
The Borough does not collect, receive or retain any portion of the service fees. The fees are charged by MuniciPAY in order to provide the service. MuniciPAY is an electronic payment processing option currently used by local Schuylkill County municipalities designed specifically for local government and utility agencies.
Customers may continue to pay by cash, check or money order at Borough Hall Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Additionally, checks may be mailed to Borough Hall at 209 North Warren Street, Orwigsburg, PA 17961, or deposited in our 24/7 Drop-Off Box located on the front outside wall of Borough Hall.
Questions concerning our new payment options may be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org or calling Borough Hall at 570.366.3103.
