As a convenience to our residents, the Town of Cottage Grove accepts payment for court fines, most permits, licenses and other miscellaneous charges through GovPayNet®.

Beginning in December 2019, property tax payments will also be included.

Payments may be made with a major credit, debit or prepaid debit card, including:


Cardholders pay a service fee at the time of their transaction. There are no charges to the Town of Cottage for participation in the GovPayNet® service.

GovPayNet®, based in Indianapolis, is a category leader in accepting credit and debit card payments on behalf of government agencies. More than one million cardholders annually rely on them when making payments to over 2,000 agencies in more than 40 states. GovPayNet® processes nearly $200 million annually in payments to government agencies.

To make a payment, you will need to know the payment amount, and provide other relevant information to identify your payment. Any required application forms should be submitted in advance, and then generally Town staff will provide you with the amount due and instructions for payment, including a link to the online payment form.
