Oklahoma Municipal Services Corporation Announces Two New Partnerships
The Oklahoma Municipal Services Corporation (OMSC), the business arm of the Oklahoma Municipal League (OML), has announced two new strategic partnerships, one, with Call A Doctor Plus (CADR) and secondly, with Surge Payment Systems.

OMSC and OML appreciate the partnerships and look forward to both companies serving our communities. 

CADR  will be available for purchase by member municipalities.  When they do so, according to CADR, their employees will gain access to an array of services designed to enhance their physical, mental and financial well-being, at no out-of-pocket or co-pay expense.  Continued...

According to SurgePays, the primary benefit of their payment system is that citizens are not required to physically visit city hall to pay their utility bills. Through their participation with SurgePays, the municipality can offer a simpler, more convenient way in which citizens can pay their bills by visiting a website or participating local merchant.  Continued...

You may contact OML's Nancee Morris at  nancee@oml.org  or call 405.528.7515.
