Three Forks officials found a better deal from a credit card processing company, which means ratepayers will see a reduction, according to a release.

“Three Forks does not cover the fees charged by its credit card processing company,” officials said in the release. “We have been with the same company for a number of years and decided to shop around to see if we could get a reduction in the fees charged and passed on to you.  Our former provider charged 3.5%, or a minimum of $1.50.”

The city found a company that charges 3%, or $1 for up to $33 charged, and made the switch recently.

But doing so may require online payers to make an adjustment, officials said.
