Harrison County has an easier way to pay your tickets

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

If you get a ticket in Harrison County, you'll soon be able to pay for the citation online. 

Harrison County supervisors voted unanimously Monday to let a private company set up a website to allow the online payments. That firm already provides such a service for 62 other counties in Mississippi and more than a dozen municipalities.

A spokesman told supervisors it won't cost the county anything to set up the payment system. The service provider will be paid by adding a six-to-seven percent surcharge for those who pay their tickets online.

"Our research has found that pricing is perfect," said court spokesman Steve Holden. "It's going to give people the opportunity to not have to send a check, a money order, go to FedEx and send something, come down and find parking, take a half day off to get this paid."

Once the system is set up, residents will be able to pay their citations with credit or debit cards.
