Tysons, VA

(Updated at 11:45 a.m.) The Vienna Town Council is considering raising its fee for bad checks.

While the proposed change would increase the fee from its current $20 to an amount up to $50, the town is currently planning to charge a fee of $25, a spokesperson for the town told Tysons Reporter.

The town’s current fee is on the lower end in comparison to nearby jurisdictions, according to the Town of Vienna:

  • Fairfax Water: $20
  • Fairfax City: $25
  • City of Alexandria: $35
  • Loudoun County: $40
  • Arlington and Fairfax counties, Falls Church, Herndon and Leesburg: $50
  • Prince William County: $50 for the first offense and $75 for the second offense within two weeks

The town’s Director of Finance Marion Serfass told the councilmembers at a meeting last Monday (Aug. 19) that a public hearing will need to be held about the proposed change because it affects taxes.

A public hearing on the proposal is set for Monday, Sept. 16.

“We don’t have a lot of bad checks,” Serfass said.
