[HISTORY: Adopted by the Township Committee of the Township of Lacey 6-27-1991 as Ord. No. 30-91 (Ch. 4 of the 1974 Code). Amendments noted where applicable.]
A service charge in the amount of twenty dollars ($20.) shall be imposed on any taxes, fees or other charges due to the Township of Lacey where a check or draft has been submitted to the township toward the payment of such taxes, fees or other charges, and such check or draft is returned for insufficient funds. The Township Committee authorizes the appropriate municipal officer to demand that future payments be tendered in cash or by certified or cashier's check on any account where a check tendered for payment on such account is returned for insufficient funds. In addition, the service charge aforesaid may be collected in any manner authorized by P.L. 1990, c. 105.
Editor's Note: See N.J.S.A. 40:5-18.
It is hereby determined that the amount of such service charge is equal to the approximate amount of the township's administrative or other related costs where a check or draft has been returned for insufficient funds.
