Due to the number of positive COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations across the country and locally, Linn County has closed most buildings to the public to help reduce community spread of the virus and to help ensure continuity of County services.
The complainant that received the bad check or share draft (insufficient funds, closed account, stop payment, etc.) can have a disinterested 3rd Party or the Sheriff's Office serve the notice (PDF) to the author of the check. Sheriff's will require advance fees (PDF) and directions (PDF). The author of the check has 10 days from date of service to make good on the check or criminal charges may be filed per Iowa Code 714.1.
