LAUREL HILL —The City Council tonight will discuss lowering the transaction fee for water bill payments to $2.75. Since this summer, residents have been able to pay using a debit or credit card for a $3.50 transaction fee.

Residents would like to see the fee reduced, according to a city water department attachment in the council packet.

"The usage is picking up as more and more people find out the option is there," the statement said.

In other business, the council will mull moving regularly scheduled Tuesday night meetings to Thursday evenings. In addition, council members will discuss the possibility of changing next month's Nov. 6 meeting date due to Election Day.

In addition, the council will be tasked to elect a chairperson and vice chairperson as required by the city charter. Larry Hendren currently serves as the chairman and Betty Williamson is the vice chairman.

The meeting will also give an update on internal updates for the general fund and water fund.

For those that want to attend the meeting will be held at 6 p.m. the Laurel Hill city hall building, located off State Road 85.
