Bail Return Policy

   CATTARAUGUS COUNTY TREASURER' OFFICE

                    BAIL RETURN POLICY

 

Bail does not get returned immediately when presenting an Order.  There is an financial system auditing requirement and a 'check write' procedure.  Therefore,  the Treasurer's Office has instituted the following policies and procedures for the return of Bail/Undertakings:

 

1.)   A Certified Return Order must be submitted to the Treasurer's Office.

2.)  If the Order is submitted by Wednesday, the bail/undertaking will be returned (less 3% fee) the following week.  A check will be written on Monday with the regular A/P check write, and may be picked up or mailed Friday of the week it is written.

3.)  If the Order is submitted after Wednesday at 5:00 pm, the bail/undertaking will be returned (less 3% fee) in 2 weeks, following the same procedure as above.
