A $5.00 service fee is to be added by the proper City or Town official to each delinquent fee, penality, and recording fee and is included in the total amount of the lien to be recorded in the County Recorder's office. The statute pertaining to this particular subject is found in IC 36-9-23-33(c).

After any delinquent fees, penalities, recording fees and services fees have been certified to the County Auditor for placing the charges upon the tax duplicate for collection, the city or town "shall not" collect these charges but they will be collected only by the County Treasurer.

Freedom Of Speech would like to say:

It's time the City of New Albany starts following the proper procedure that the State Board of Accounts has set up in collecting Delinquent Sewer fees.
