Times Reports Lake County Treasurer's Office Open Longer Hours for Property Tax Payments Monday

From the Northwest Indiana Times:

Lake County Treasurer John Petalas reminds property owners the 2014 first installment of property tax bills is due Monday.
Petalas said his offices will have extended hours from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday at his offices at 2293 N. Main St., Crown Point; 232 Russell St., Hammond; and 11 E. 4th Ave., Gary.
He said anyone who doesn't have questions or problems with their bills can pay at the branch offices of these banks: American Savings FSB, Centier Bank, Chase Bank, DeMotte State Bank, First Federal Savings and Loan, First Financial Bank, First Midwest Bank, Dyer Bank & Trust, BMO Harris Bank, Horizon Bank, Lake Federal Bank, Main Source Bank, People's Bank and the Indiana branches of Tech Federal Credit Union.
Petalas said property owners also can pay online at by e-check. They also can pay online by credit card. The credit card company, not the county, will charge a fee for that service.
He advised the public that as the deadline approaches, his office will be receiving a high volume of calls so anyone calling for information will need to be patient.
