This bill pertains to the City of Lake View in Tuscaloosa County, Alabama, and introduces a provision that allows the municipal judge or magistrate to recall a failure to appear or failure to comply warrant upon the payment of a fee by the defendant. The bill specifies that the warrant recall fee shall not exceed one hundred dollars ($100) and must be paid by the defendant when the warrant is recalled. It is important to note that this bill does not obligate the City of Lake View to recall any warrant; the decision to recall a warrant remains at the discretion of the municipal judge or magistrate.

The bill also outlines the allocation of the collected warrant recall fees, stating that all such fees received by the City of Lake View Municipal Court shall be deposited into the City of Lake View Corrections Fund. This allocation is to be done in accordance with Section 11-47-7.1 of the Code of Alabama 1975. The act is set to become effective on October 1, 2024, which gives the City of Lake View time to prepare for the implementation of this new provision. There are no insertions or deletions marked in the provided text of the bill.
