Anyone with Dutch Bank Account living in Zurich?

I have to pay 12,80 to the City of Nijmegen but it is impossible to transfer from my Swiss ebanking (problem with IBAN and BIC Codes)

I called the Nijmegen City Hall and they are aware of this issue and they suggest that I try and find someone who I has a Dutch bank account who I can pay, and they pay the bill for me.

I will give someone 20 and they pay my bill from that and keep the rest for their trouble.

I will probably end up getting a bill for several hundred chuffs from some debt recovery company

Can it be paid in cash over a bank or Post counter? I'll be just down the road in Arnhem on Monday morning.
