BERTRAM — Municipal court payments in Bertram have a new way to be submitted.
The city now takes online payments at www.bertramcourtpmts.com.
Bertram just has one municipal court clerk, and the system should allow the city to process more payments, City Secretary Evan Milliorn said.
“Other cities that don’t have a website or software on a website to process payments have looked at this as an avenue to alleviate the phone calls,” Milliorn said.
The City Council voted during its regular meeting Feb. 12 to change the city-issued cell-phone policy.
The city has issued certain city staff members a cell phone, however council voted not to continue that policy. Instead, city staff will be given a monthly cell-phone stipend of $25-$50, Milliorn said.
