County Government Satellite Center Opens in Waldorf

LA PLATA, Md. (July 16, 2009)—Charles County residents now have an alternative location to pay property tax bills and other outstanding fees. The new Waldorf Satellite Center, an extension of the Charles County Treasurer’s Office, building permits division, and water/sewer utilities division, is open for business.

Today the Charles County Commissioners, County Treasurer Jerome E. Peuler, Jr., and Sheriff Rex Coffey cut the ribbon celebrating the opening of the Waldorf Center, which offers residents a convenient place to handle payments and fee collections that were serviced previously only at the Charles County Government Building in La Plata.

The following are accepted at the Waldorf office:

-- Water and sewer bill payments
-- Red light citation fees
-- Property tax bill payments
-- Dog tag fees
-- Parking ticket fines

Permits can also be picked up and dropped off at the Waldorf office. The La Plata office still offers all of these services, in addition to handling water or tax bill disputes, adjustments to bills, and property redemption issues.

“I am more than excited about the opening of this facility in Waldorf. I am elated,” said Commissioner Reuben B. Collins, II (District 3). “This is a convenient site where residents can make payments that they used to have to travel to County Government Building in La Plata to handle. It is my hope that many citizens will take full advantage of the convenience and time-savings that this site offers.”

It is anticipated that the Center will primarily serve the approximately 22,000 residents with water accounts in the Waldorf area, and 29,000 residents with tax accounts in the Waldorf/White Plains area. However, this location is easily accessible and open to all Charles County residents.

The Center is open 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. A drop box is available for after-hours payments.

The Waldorf Satellite Center is located in the same building as the Waldorf District 3 Sheriff’s Station, at 3670 Leonardtown Road in Waldorf. The building also includes two meetings rooms that will be used by the Commissioners for community meetings and gatherings.
