Me: "Oh, you're going to charge me for doing all the data entry for you and giving you direct access to my checking account? Fine. Let's do it this way - I'll send you a check from my online account for free, and you can then manually enter all the information into your tracking system without a bill stub."

I have found city governance the slowest in moving to electronic systems and utilizing them properly. Our city used to charge $2.50 for online payment of water bills, because they used an outside vendor. Now they have their own system and there is no charge, but the account log in and payment process is SOOOO tedious. I just send them an eCheck from my bank for free that they need to process like any other old check. Welcome to 2013.

Perhaps the ESCROW account we decided on wasn't such a bad idea after all.
