HAMILTON, Ohio, Jan 8, 2003 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- U. S. Bank (NYSE:USB) and the
Butler County treasurer's office have entered into a final agreement to provide
the residents of Butler County a more convenient method for making County
payments. The system should be up and running around January 15, 2003, when real
estate tax payments can be made via the Internet to Carole B. Mosketti, Butler
County treasurer, just in time for the first half real estate tax due date of
February 14, 2003.
Using the U. S. Bank E-Payment Service, residents of Butler County, Ohio will be
able to pay their real estate property taxes and their water and sewer payments
online directly through the Butler County website at www.butlercountyohio.org.
Mosketti said, "We have enjoyed a successful relationship with U.S. Bank for
more than 20 years and are very excited about our expanded partnership. The
E-Payment Service is one more way the treasurer's office is making it more
convenient for the residents of our county to make their payments to us. Our
goal is to one day expand this service making it available for all county
departments so that Butler County residents have the option of making all county
payments on line."
After receiving and reviewing their bills, residents will have the ability to
sign onto the Butler County website and select a 'payment' option. Residents
will then provide specific information about the type of payment they are making
and submit their payment direct to the County electronically, without the need
to write a check and mail it to the county offices. This electronic payment
option is all done in a safe, secure Internet environment, and without the need
to leave their homes.
According to Don Leedom, CCM, vice president and regional team leader for U.S.
Bank's corporate treasury management group in Cincinnati, Ohio, "The U.S. Bank
E-Payment Service is a one of the newest forms of electronic payment
applications available to business organizations. The decision by Butler County
to employ this program, and the efficiencies that it creates for the county,
signifies a win-win for both the county and its residents." U.S. Bank has served
Butler county since 1863 and currently has 17 local branches within the
Caren Galloway, U.S. Bank regional manager of government banking, said, "U.S.
Bank is currently working with several state agencies to bring E-payment
solutions to their communities."
