Do you owe for past due bills?

We have received several complaints of collection agencies causing people to believe that we will be arresting them if they do not take steps to pay their bills.
Make no mistake...we feel that you should pay any past due bills that you may owe. However, failing to do so is a civil problem and generally does not result in arrest unless you fail to appear for a court hearing.
If you receive a phone call demanding payment on a past due bill this call is NOT being made by the Sheriff’s Office.
