Title

Discussion of the Ordinance to amend Chapter 35, Section 35.36 Fees for Services Performed by Lake County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) by adopting a revised fee schedule for the LCSO.

 

Staff Summary

                     The LCSO, in conjunction with Finance and Administrative Services (FAS) Department, completed a review of the cost of certain services provided by the LCSO.

                     The services reviewed include:

o                     Parking fines

o                     Copy charges

o                     Photography

o                     Sheriff Work Release/Periodic Imprisonment

o                     Bond

o                     Warrants

                     None of the fees have been modified in over five years.

                     The analysis illustrates that the fee charged for each of these services cover the LCSO costs for providing that service.

                     As a result of the review, the LCSO is recommending the adoption of a revised fee schedule to cover the costs, with an effective upon ratification of the County Board.  The actual costs to provide certain services should be rounded to the nearest whole dollar amount.
