TAWAU: The Tawau Municipal Council (MPT) yesterday launched an electronic payment system, MPTPay, to make it easier for the locals to pay assessment rates and land tax via mobile phones and computers.

MPT President, Alijus Sipil said the application, which could be downloaded through Google Play Store or the MPT website, would also facilitate the public to make payment involving licences, permits and compounds.
