Sheriff asks for higher fees for serving papers
The Pierce County Sheriff's Department is proposing raising the fees it charges for paper service and reallocating the fees it collects for foreclosure procedures.
"All we did is we upped our fees to match everybody around us," said Sheriff Nancy Hove.
She said the department has been collecting about $35,000 a year to serve legal notices on people involved in civil or divorce proceedings. The fee increase will mean an extra $5,000 to $7,000 a year, said Hove.
