WARREN, NJ - Residents can now pay township Construction Office fees with credit cards. The acceptance of credit cards are part of enhancements to the department that began in 2012 with the installation of a new software system, and brings the township a step closer to the ultimate goal of having integrated building permit and inspection records online."The credit card charges are a step towards that," Township Administrator Mark Krane said. Warren Construction Official Jeff Heiss said "This is like watching a flower bloom, its just getting out of the ground."
Credit card charges are optional. the Building Department will continue to accept checks (no cash) and charges will be processed through MuniciPay, with applicants paying 2.45 percent of the permit fee as a "courtesy fee" ($3 minimum).Some building charges will now be payable online, such as permits for small projects not requiring plans or site review.
