Notwithstanding any code provision to the contrary, county
officers required or authorized to collect fines, fees, taxes or
other moneys provided by law may accept credit or check cards as a
form of payment. County officers may set a fee to be added to each
transaction equal to the charge paid by the county officers for the
use of the credit or check card by the payor: Provided, That the
county officer is required to obtain three bids and use the lowest
qualified bid received: Provided, however, That if a county
officer has obtained credit card services, another county officer
may be added to that service without receiving bids for that
service. The county officer shall disclose the amount of the fee
to the payor prior to the transaction and no other fees for the use
of a credit or check card may be imposed upon the payor.
Acceptance of a credit or check card as a form of payment shall be
in accordance with the rules and requirements set forth by the
credit or check card provider.
