Calloway County Office of Circuit Court Clerk accepts credit cards
Calloway County court costs and fines can now be paid by credit card, announced Calloway County Circuit Court Clerk Linda Avery.
Avery explained that the Calloway County Office of Circuit Court Clerk has traditionally accepted cash, checks or money orders as payment, but it has recently added the capability of accepting payments by Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover Card at the counter.
"Providing the option of paying by credit card is a service that many people have come to expect and we are glad that we can offer it to them," said Avery. The Office of Circuit Court Clerk is located in the Calloway County Judicial Building at 312 N. Fourth St. in Murray.
Calloway is one of 18 Kentucky counties that allows citizens to pay court costs and fines by credit card, according to Scott Brown, general manager for the Department of Auditing Services of the Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC), which provides operational support to circuit court clerks statewide. The AOC is evaluating the success of this program in order to decide how quickly to implement it in other counties.
Circuit court clerks have offices in all 120 Kentucky counties and are responsible for managing the records of circuit and district courts. The AOC supports the activities of more than 3,500 Kentucky Court of Justice employees, including the elected offices of justices, judges and circuit court clerks.
