[Adopted by L.L. No. 1-1993]
The Ulster County Legislature hereby determines that those persons sentenced to a period of probation upon conviction of any crime under Article 31 of the Vehicle and Traffic Law should be required to pay a fee to offset the administrative costs of the probation.
Editor's Note: Article 31 is titled "Alcohol and Drug-Related Offenses and Procedures Applicable Thereto."
The Ulster County Probation Department is hereby authorized to charge an administrative fee of $30 per month to individuals currently serving or who shall be sentenced to a period of probation upon conviction of any crime under Article 31 of the Vehicle and Traffic Law of the State of New York.
The Department shall waive all or part of such fee where, because of the indigence of the offender, the payment of said surcharge would work an unreasonable hardship on the person convicted, his or her immediate family, or any other person who is dependent on such person for financial support.
Moneys collected pursuant to this article shall be utilized for probation services for the local Probation Department but shall not be used to replace federal funds otherwise for probation services.
