(continued from page 14) The program will accept MasterCard and Visa credit cards and signature debit cards. The service will typically be available 24 hours a day seven days a week with scheduled maintenance occurring on Sundays between 1 a.m. and 7 a.m. Eastern Time. Convenience fees of 2.49 percent of the property tax payment amount, and a rising scale of convenience fees based on the amount of the recreation fee payments, will be passed on to the residents using the program. Upon acceptance of a convenience fee, the resident will be shown the fee separately from the payment amount. Those fees will be charged to the resident at the time of payment, but they will not be deducted from the principal amount of the payment so the borough will receive the full principal amount of the payment while passing the fee portion to JP Morgan Chase directly. Borough Administrator Greg Hart advised that the agreement is currently being finalized and the public will be notified when the system is operational.
