Outdoor Collection Box

    We have been considering for sometime installing an outdoor payment drop-off box. Now with COVID-19 we have Town Hall closed to the public and it would really be nice to have.

    What do you use? Did you purchase and install it yourself? Do you have a key or a combination? Is it such that customers can drop the payment without getting out of their cars?

    Any input would be welcome!

    We have a drop box on the front porch near the door to the town hall.  The envelopes drop into a locked box that we access from the lobby.  It is very similar to a bank night depository drop, however just an envelope slot in a brass fixture with a door.  I'm sure the Town had it installed and it has been here for many years.  It, along with our drive up window, have had heavy use with the COVID situation.

    We have a drop box located curb-side in our parking lot where the customer can drive up and drop a payment in the box.  It was ordered online and installed by our utility staff when we moved into a new office many years ago.  It is opened by a key that is assigned to our collections staff.  It works great for customers but staff does have to walk out in the weather to check it.

    We recently installed one for the same reason.  We ordered the Durabox Through the Door locking drop box (D500).  This way the box is secure inside the building.  It uses keys to unlock.  Our public works guys installed it.
