The City of Fort Wayne has saved $3,265 by using a Purchasing Card Program. The program is a partnership between the City and Fifth Third Bank.

A rebate check for $3,265 was recently issued to the City. The rebate is based upon net expenditures. The rebate rate is 0.30 percent. The City uses the card program for smaller purchases in departments, travel and copiers to name a few.

“City government is using technology to reduce costs and improve customer service,” said Mayor Graham Richard. “Our community benefits when local government is committed to innovation and best practices to protect taxpayers.”
