Before any license as provided herein shall be issued, each applicant shall file with the county clerk a bond in the amount of one thousand dollars ($1,000.00) in the form of a surety bond, cashier's check or a letter of credit from a financial institution running to the county clerk. Every business association, company or corporation which has one or more employees or agents acting in the capacity of peddler or solicitor shall file with the county clerk a bond covering all such employees or agents in the amount of one thousand dollars ($1,000.00) for each employee or agent to a maximum of five thousand dollars ($5,000.00).
An action on the bond, cashier's check or letter of credit may be brought by Ada County for a licensee's failure to comply with any provision of this chapter.
Upon expiration of the license, the county clerk shall return the bond, cashier's check or letter of credit within ninety (90) days after receipt of a written request for its return, unless the county clerk has been notified that any provision of this chapter has not been complied with or that Ada County has brought an action on the bond. If the county clerk receives such notice, the bond, cashier's check or letter of credit shall not be returned to the licensee, except as directed by a court. Forfeiture of the bond is a civil remedy and does not foreclose the possibility of criminal prosecution and punishment as otherwise provided in this chapter. (Ord. 318, 10-19-1996; amd. Ord. 754, 6-29-2010)
