Atchison County, Kansas, Emergency Management Now Accepts Electronic Payments

The County now offers the convenience of processing credit card and check payments electronically

TOPEKA, Kan.--()--Atchison County, Kansas, Emergency Management launches KanPay Counter, a solution provided by Kansas.gov that conveniently processes credit card payments over the counter.

“We want to deliver the convenience and efficiency of online payments to our constituents across all of our county offices,” said Wesley Lanter, Director of Emergency Management.

The Atchison County Treasurer’s office has used the KanPay Counter solution for several years. KanPay Counter is now available in several other county offices. Those offices include Emergency Management, EMS, Sheriff, Noxious Weed, Road & Bridge, Register of Deeds, HR and the Clerk’s Office.

Atchison County Emergency Management Department, in collaboration with Kansas.gov, is now providing KanPay Counter payment processing for the Courthouse, the EMS facility, and for the Noxious Weed office.

KanPay Counter is designed specifically for state and municipal governments to process credit card and electronic check payments. The partnership between Kansas.gov and the state operates under a self-funded model where no tax dollars were used to develop and maintain the payment service.
