5.24.010 Purpose.

Taxpayers’ funds are being expended because of the time and effort on the part of County offices that it is necessary to expend when the County receives a non-negotiable check. It is a convenience to the public to be allowed to make payments in the form of a check. Charging a service fee on checks requiring reprocessing would be to the best interest of Clallam County.

5.24.020 Check processing fee authorized.

County offices are hereby authorized to make a charge of $25 whenever it is necessary to reprocess a non-negotiable check.

5.24.030 Effective date.

This chapter shall take effect ten (10) days after adoption.
