Central Collections

The Central Collections Division serves as the collection agency for Butte County departments and the Superior Court system. Modeled after private enterprise collection efforts, while also adhering to compliance requirements for public entities, the program generates more than $5 million annually. The primary focus of the collections effort is to recover delinquent fines and fees assessed by the court system and various Butte County departments. The division also pursues delinquent unsecured property taxes, serves as the central collection agency for various County programs, and administers the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)/Housing and Urban Development (HUD) loan program. Approximately 25% of all revenue collected benefits the County's general fund.
