In the event that any payment tendered by a check or other written instrument on any account owing to the Village of Mamaroneck is returned for insufficient funds, there is hereby authorized the imposition of a service charge to be added to that account owing to the Village in the amount of the service charge imposed by the bank, in addition to the sum of $20 per check or other written instrument so returned for administrative costs incurred by the Village for reprocessing such returned check or written instrument, and the principal of such account shall be increased accordingly.
Should a service charge be imposed upon a tax or special assessment account pursuant to § 11-1 hereof, then that service charge so added to such tax or special assessment account shall be added to the sum of the principal then due and owing for the purposes of determining the amount of the lien therefor.
