ENFORCEMENT OF JUDGMENTS IN CIVIL ACTIONS
11-729. SHERIFF FEE FOR SERVICE. (1) The board of county commissioners of each respective county shall have the power to set sheriff’s fees by resolution of the board for serving an initial order of garnishment and writ of execution. The board may also set an additional lesser fee for making an interim return on a continuing garnishment to show disbursement of moneys held by the sheriff for return service, including for receiving and paying over money from any money garnishment, and including wage garnishment or financial institution garnishment. These fees shall be established using criteria determined by the board not to exceed actual costs directly incurred for order of garnishment and writ of execution service.
(2) At the time of adoption of the resolution establishing any fee authorized in this section, the board shall annually publish on the county website all the criteria used to establish the total fee and the value of each criterion’s proportionate share of the total fee. The initial garnishment and continuing service fee herein allowed shall be collected from the judgment debtor.
