Additional Information
*EFFECTIVE NOVEMBER 1, 2016:  To continue to provide our customers the ability to make in-office  payments with debit or credit cards, the City of Columbia has partnered with Value Payment Systems (VPS), a third party service provider.  

In so doing, a new Convenience Fee will be charged for all Debit Card (1.5%) and Credit Card (2.5%) payments.  There is a $1.95 Minimum Fee with this service.

If you do not wish to use this service, you may pay the City of Columbia directly by other traditional methods such as cash or check.
