Make a Payment Print Receipt Check Reports


The Town of Chester, NY now offers customers the convenience of paying their water bill by credit card. Residents can pay their bill online, at the Town Clerks’ office, over the phone, or via a mobile app. To facilitate this service, the Town partnered with industry leader PayGOV.US.

Town Clerk Linda Zappala researched several companies to find the right provider to serve the water department. Most companies assess high fees, which reduce the benefits associated with this method of payment. After thorough review one company rose to the top. PayGOV.US is the premier provider of electronic payment services to American Cities and Towns currently serving over 1,000 municipal clients in over 40 States. Their service works by assessing a convenience fee directly to the cardholder who chooses to pay by these methods. This allows the Town to provide new and convenient ways to pay, without bearing the burden of the overall cost.

PayGOV.US assesses a nominal convenience fee processing these transactions. American Express®, MasterCard ®, Discover ® and VISA ® along with debit cards carrying a MasterCard ® or Visa ® are accepted by the program. Citizens using credit cards with bonus rewards programs can, depending on their card’s program, earn rewards, points, and cash-back on airline frequent flyer miles.
