C. Delinquent Fees and Fines. Fees are delinquent when they are more than 30 days past due. Fines are delinquent on the day after they are imposed by the court unless the court provides otherwise. The harbormaster may, but need not, give notice of any delinquent fees or fines.

In the event such suit is commenced, the person obligated to pay the fee or fine shall, in addition to any other liability imposed by this title, be liable for the City and Borough of Wrangell’s actual, reasonable attorney’s fees and court costs associated with the collection.

F. Lien for Unpaid Fees. In addition to all other remedies available by law, the City and Borough of Wrangell shall have a lien on any registered vessel and a maritime lien and charge against the master and owner of any documented vessel for any fees and interest provided by this title and costs of collection, including attorney’s fees, upon such vessel (including all equipment, tackle, and gear) and property giving rise to such fees.

B. Such rates, charges and classifications shall be just and reasonable and shall be established and modified at a public hearing conducted by the port commission. Notice specifying the time and place of hearing shall be at given by at least one publication in a newspaper of general circulation in the borough at least 15 days prior to the hearing.

C. At the hearing, all persons affected by or interested in the matters to be heard may be present and may be represented by counsel.
