Credit Transaction Limit

Due to the gradual, yet steady increase, in merchant credit card fees, the City of Whittier has established a $5,000 credit card limit per transaction.  Effective Monday, December 1, 2014, payments over $5,000 must be made by check, cash, or debit/ATM card. A transaction is defined as the combined fees/taxes, per customer/location, per day, regardless of multiple payees.  Payment by debit card is not affected.

Please feel free to contact the Administrative Services Department - Revenue Management Division at (562) 567-9860 if you have any questions.
