It is recommended that you pay by a unit check to the Council office. If paying by a check turn that in to the Unit Commissioner or District Executive. Print your Charter Renewal Application for your unit files and send a copy to your Unit Commissioner or District Commissioner. You do not need to turn-in a printed copy to Council.
