Tax Time Made Easier For Medway Co-operative Bank Residents
TOWN OF Medway Co-operative Bank TAXES AND FEES NOW PAYABLE AT Medway Co-operative Bank
Mar 29, 2006, Medway, MA—As a civic service to the Town of Medway Co-operative Bank and its residents during difficult budgetary times, Medway Co-operative Bank is pleased to step in and offer assistance with the Town's tax payment process. A new secure drop box has been installed at the Bank's 70 Main Street location, in the ATM vestibule. Medway Co-operative Bank residents and business owners can now place their town tax and fee payments in the drop box anytime, day or night.
Providing creative programs that serve all members of its community is a priority at Medway Co-operative Bank, and this new payment method is yet another such example. Due to the Town's budgetary constraints, hours that the Treasurer/Collector's office is open to the public have been reduced significantly. The new Bank-hosted drop box serves to accommodate those residents who want the convenience of paying their taxes and fees anytime. It also benefits the Town of Medway Co-operative Bank by providing greater internal efficiencies in the Office of the Treasurer/Collector.
Medway Co-operative Bank is always enthusiastic to demonstrate its ongoing commitment and investment in the Medway Co-operative Bank community. The Bank provided the $2,400.00 necessary to purchase and install the secure drop box.
The process for residents to make payments is simple at the Medway Co-operative Bank location. The lock box drop slot is built into the wall just to the right of the ATM. This slot is clearly marked “Town of Medway Co-operative Bank Drop Box for Tax and Fee Payments.” Individuals can insert a standard size envelope that holds a copy of their real estate, excise, water, sewer, trash or other bill generated by the Town along with their payment check. Cash payments cannot be accepted. Most importantly, access to the vestibule is possible seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day. The ATM vestibule can be accessed after business hours by swiping any valid ATM, debit or credit card through the card reader security device at the door that faces Main Street (Route 109).
