New software to change some county payments

Beginning next week, payments to several Beaufort County departments will now be handled by the Treasurer's Office through a new county software system.

Customers will still conduct all business in the county Planning, Zoning, Building Codes, Business License and Codes Enforcement Departments offices. But they will then be directed to the Treasurer's Office to make one payment for all their business with the other departments. A computer-generated receipt will be provided.

The new system will begin July 16 and make payments more efficient, according to county officials.
