[Adopted 9-20-2016 by Ord. No. 5-2016]
The Borough has fees, fines and other matters in which citizens or persons submit personal or business checks to pay for the same;
From time to time the Borough has received checks that are not collectable due to insufficient funds;
When the check is uncollectable, the Borough sustains a service charge placed upon its accounts in which said check was deposited and in addition incurs unnecessary work on the part of its clerical staff due to the noncollectability of the bad check;
The Borough should not sustain any loss due to the receipt of a bad check;
The Plymouth Borough Council, for the reasons set forth above and incorporated herein, hereby imposes a charge of $50 for each and every bad check presented to the Borough that does not clear when deposited in any Borough account to cover fees charged to the Borough for depositing a bad check and to cover administrative costs resulting from dealing with the bad check. In addition, upon failure of the maker, their agent or employ to make good the amount of the initial check tendered to the Borough and the $50 charge within seven business days of the mailing date of notice of the same from the Borough shall be subject to the all fees and costs connected with the filing of a complaint with the Magisterial District Judge having jurisdiction over Plymouth Borough matters in addition to the payment of the amount of the initial bad check and the $50 charge. This remedy shall be in addition to and shall not preclude the filing of criminal charges to redress the issuance of the bad check.
This chapter will be effect as per the Borough Code, 8 Pa.C.S.A. § 3301.3.
