NORTH BALTIMORE — North Baltimore Council heard a proposal Tuesday that would allow utility customers to pay bills online.

If enacted, the village’s website would include a way for residents to pay monthly water and sewer bills with credit cards or debit cards. An account on the site could be set up for each utility customer.

A 2.9 percent credit card processing fee probably would be charged.

Credit card information would be secure on this site, according to Seth Thompson, who oversees the village’s website.

No decision was reached Tuesday.

Separately, Village Council gave the second of three readings to a proposal that would hire Intech IT Solutions to install high-definition cameras at the village park and outside the municipal building.

The cost was set by ordinance not to exceed $7,800.

Separately, Todd Dickerson, who handles economic development matters for council, said an unnamed trucking company has expressed interest in a “small opportunity” in North Baltimore.

The company is searching for office space where dispatchers would communicate with the company’s truckers.

Separately, council’s Finance Committee will meet next week to discuss raises for municipal workers.
