The technology is in place for residents to begin paying for town services any time of day and any day of the week -- on-line.
Utility payments can be made by credit card, debit card or check simply by going to the Town of Clayton website at www.townofclaytonnc.org and linking to the Payment Processing Center.
Payments can also be made over the phone by calling toll free 866-907-4186 or through the automated attendant function at the standard customer service phone number 919-553-5002.
"We're ready to go," said Customer Service Director Ann Game. "With our new on-line payment option, our customers avoid late fees and have access to pay their accounts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week."
A service convenience fee of $3.95 will be added to each on-line or phone transaction. Customers will also still have the option of paying by standard mail or drop box prior to their due date.
The Customer Service Department will no longer accept credit card payments by telephone, and instead will redirect phone payments customers to the new payment processing center for fast, convenient service.
