County Commission members are expected to approve next Wednesday a new credit card system for accepting payments at the Criminal Court clerk's office.
Trustee Bill Hullander said he is moving to the same system.
Officials said the LexisNexis VitalChk Network will allow offices the flexibility to accept credit card payments either in person, over the phone, or online.
The online payment service is not currently available at the Criminal Court clerk's office through the current vendor, Clerk Gwen Tidwell said.
Mr. Hullander said the new system will give a lower rate to citizens than the current one.
The service will be provided at no cost to Hamilton County as all fees will be absorbed by the credit card holder.
Officials said it will be easier to close out accounts at the end of each day under the new system. They will not have to wait for electronic transfers.
Trustee Hullander said for those using a debit card there will be a flat $2 charge.
He said with an E Check it is $1.
