Township agrees to IT services with county
By Dana Casadei
According the township clerk Martin Brook, this is a rather routine matter for the board, as this comes before the board every few years. He said it isn’t a contract for an exchange of funds or any payment. This approval is for the basic terms of the user agreement and has nothing to do with payment, but does need the authorization for supervisor Dani Walsh to sign it.
These IT services give the township the ability to accept over the counter credit card payments, take credit card payments online, use the Court and Law Enforcement Management Information System, and much more.
“As part of that agreement we also get a share of what they call the enhanced access fees – it’s their transaction fee…it’s a rebate back to us,” explained treasurer Michael Schostak.
