A couple of notes on GR PayIt:
Make sure to have your invoice number, customer number, license ID, or email address. You’ll will need one of these items to search for your invoice in GR PayIt. Most of this information is printed on the invoice; however, a physical copy of the bill may not be necessary.
You can pay online with credit/debit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express) or eCheck. There are also options to mail your payment or pay in person at City Hall.
Login to GR PayIt and use your existing account. If you are new to GR PayIt, you can create an account or pay as a guest. You'll be asked to look up your invoice and begin the process of paying it.
