Subchapter 004 : FISCAL AFFAIRS

(Cite as: 24 App. V.S.A. ch. 409, § 403)
  • § 409-403. Collection

    Annually on or before February 1, the Treasurer shall issue and present a warrant to the legislative body of each member requiring that the amount of such assessment be paid beginning not sooner than July in accordance with the schedule of payments adopted by the Board. The legislative body of each member shall draw an order on the municipal treasurer for the amount of such assessment, and the municipal treasurer shall pay to the District Treasurer the amount of such order. If any member shall fail to pay when due any assessment against it by the District, it shall incur an additional charge that the Board determines will be reasonable. However, the charge shall not exceed the maximum charge which municipalities may charge for delinquent real property taxes plus interest. Interest shall be charged at a rate the Board determines to be reasonable. Such additional charge and interest, together with the amount due, court costs, and reasonable attorney fees of the District may be recovered by the District in a civil action brought in the Lamoille Superior Court under this section, notwithstanding any other remedy available to the District.
