Gilbert could raise credit card fees for permits, licenses, development fees

By Mike Sunnucks | Rose Law Group Reporter

The town of Gilbert is looking at raising credit card surcharges for business licenses as well as planning, code compliance, inspection, plan review, engineering and fire permit fees.

The Gilbert Town Council will consider an ordinance allowing up to 4 percent credit card service fee on those payments to the city.

Gilbert currently assesses a 2.68 percent surcharge fee on credit card payments to cover the processing costs. Town staff is recommending raising that to 3.10 percent including for business licenses.

Town officials say the surcharges will cover credit card processing costs and will be reviewed annually.

Gilbert brought in $6.2 million in revenue from permit, licenses and other fees in fiscal year 2019, according to town documents.
