Effective May 24, Santa Fe Irrigation District will begin charging a 2.53% processing fee when utilizing a credit or debit card for online bill pay. This fee is a direct pass-through of the cost of processing fees charged to the District by credit and banking companies. The policy change was reviewed at the Administrative and Finance Committee and was adopted by the full Board of Directors at the May 21 meeting. We understand this is a change in past practice, but will only apply to credit and debit card payments. Customers still have the option to pay online with their checking account information for free or though sending a check to our customer service department. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the fee, please contact us at 858-756-2424 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. We appreciate your understanding as we work to streamline operations and reduce costs.
