The City Council recently approved a $2.50 convenience fee for all credit card payments for all City departments that take credit cards, effective March 16, 2017. This applies to all credit card payments for water/sewer bills, municipal court fees, permit fees, library, recreation and all other payments.

The reason for adding the fee is to recoup the payment card interchange fees imposed by credit card processing companies. For FY2016, Haltom City paid approximately $150,000 for payment interchange fees.
