Smyrna to pass along credit card costs

Credit card costs will be passed along to Smyrna residents because of an updated registration platform for use by the city’s Parks and Recreation Department.

The Smyrna City Council voted 6-1 - with Councilwoman Susan Wilkinson opposed - on Sept. 16 to pay $25,900 for a one-time implementation and training cost by CivicRec.

Also, there will be an annual cost of $26,746 to buy the CivicRec digital registration platform.

CivicRec will pass along the credit card costs and save the city about $20,000 annually going forward, according to a city statement.

The current annual cost for Active is $45,000 and increasing annually.

Civic Rec has proposed a fixed cost of $26,746 annually.
