Please note that using a credit card will incur a convenience fee that is charged by the credit card and merchant service providers.  Council does not retain any part of this fee (we initially receive the fee as part of the total payment amount, but then pay the entire fee out again to the merchant services provider). The credit card surcharges for each of these cards are: 

  • Visa: $1.46 per transaction

  • MasterCard: 2%

Transactions are processed within two working days of the payment. Please contact us regarding refunds for overpayments or incorrect payments.​
