If the Tax Collector determines that alarm user has deliberately withheld the amount of the fee to be remitted to an alarm company or that an alarm user has failed to pay the amount of the fee for a period of one or more billing periods, or if the Tax Collector deems it in the best interest of the City and County, he or she may assume responsibility for collection of fees due under this Article from certain named alarm users for specified billing periods. The Tax Collector shall notify the alarm user that the Tax Collector has assumed responsibility for collection of the fees due and payable for the stated periods and demand payment of such fees. The notice shall be served on the alarm user by handing it to him or her personally or by deposit of the notice in the United States mail, postage prepaid thereon, addressed to the alarm user at the address to which billing was made by the alarm company, or, should the alarm user have changed his or her address, to his or her last known address.
If an alarm user fails to remit the fee to the Tax Collector, the alarm user shall be subject to the interest and penalties provided in Section 3710.5, in addition to any other penalty imposed by this Article.
