Sec. 3. (1) Before a local unit accepts a payment by financial transaction device for a tax, assessment, or fee, the governing body of the local unit shall adopt a resolution authorizing the acceptance of payments by financial transaction devices. The resolution shall designate the treasurer of the local unit as responsible for determining the types of financial transaction devices that may be accepted. The resolution may designate an additional officer or employee as jointly responsible with the treasurer for determining the financial transaction devices that may be accepted. However, if the treasurer is not an elected treasurer, the resolution may provide that the determination of the types of financial transaction devices shall be subsequently approved by resolution of the governing body. The determination of the financial transaction devices that may be accepted shall comply with any resolution for the deposit of public money under section 2 of Act No. 40 of the Public Acts of the First Extra Session of 1932, being section 129.12 of the Michigan Compiled Laws, applicable to that local unit. The resolution under this subsection shall specify any taxes, assessments, or fees for which payments by financial transaction devices will not be accepted.
(2) Notwithstanding the resolution adopted under subsection (1), if an elected official's office has direct responsibility to collect a tax, assessment, or fee and the elected official is not a voting member of the governing body of the local unit, the elected official may determine not to accept payments by financial transaction devices for that particular tax, assessment, or fee. Before implementing such a determination, the elected official shall notify the governing body of the local unit in writing of the particular tax, assessment, or fee for which payments by financial transaction devices will not be accepted.
