ACBOS Approves System To Accept Credit Cards

ACBOS Approves System To Accept Credit Cards

The Amador Board of Supervisors has approved a system for the County Government to accept credit cards as payment.  Presented to the Board by County Treasurer/Tax Collector Mike Ryan, the approval allows GovPayNet to process payments on behalf of the County.  There is no cost to the County, but there is a service charge to customers that ranges from 2.25 to 2.65 percent.

The Board approved the installation of three new stop signs along Jackson Valley Road. The new four-way stops will be a Martin Lane, Comanche Road, and Oak Drive and are in response to the new Buena Vista Casino, due to open soon.

The Board also approved an additional $100,000 worth of work at the now-closed County Landfill in Buena Vista.  The money will pay for emergency pumping and repairs as the County meets water quality regulations at the site.

The Board is moving forward with the hiring of an Economic Development Director, accepting a recommendation from a Board Subcommittee that the position should be filled full-time in an effort to encourage more business activity in the County.  Local resident Sherry Curtis spoke against the effort, calling the proposed position both “fascism” and “socialism” during public comment.
