Covington VA –-(Ammoland.com)- Another example of a regular member getting a problem fixed. Marc Montoni noticed that the Rockingham County and Harrisonburg City Circuit Court Clerk charged him $52 for his CHP renewal.
Upon checking with the Clerk, he was told they were allowed to charge a $2 credit card processing fee.
Pressed further by Marc for details, the Clerk, Chaz W. Evans-Haywood, researched the issue and then came back with this email:
Just an additional note as a follow up to the voicemail I left you.
The supreme court cover sheet regarding civil actions does not include CHP as an action type. For that reason, I have removed the $2 fee and will reimburse the folks that have filed in the past couple days.
Thanks again for calling me to task on this.
All my best,
Hats off to Clerk Evans-Haywood for digging deeper, acknowledging a mistake, and then correcting it.
Marc was tenacious and that's what gets the job done. Hats off to Marc, too.
I suggest everyone hang onto this Update in case one of your Clerks decides to charge you that same $2 credit card fee. If they do, be tenacious. If they still won't back off, then let me know and VCDL will step in.
