755.21 Collection. The municipal court may contract with a collection agency for the collection of unpaid forfeitures, assessments, and surcharges under s. 66.0114 (1) (a). The contract shall provide that the collection agency shall be paid from the proceeds recovered by the collection agency.

For each violation for which a forfeiture, assessment, or surcharge is imposed, the municipal court shall determine the amount to be distributed to each entity under s. 66.0114 (1) (bm) and (3) (b) and (c) as follows:
(1) Calculate the percentage of the total violation amount to which the entity is entitled before the collection agency is paid.
(2) Subtract from the amount collected for the violation the amount paid to the collection agency to collect the violation amount.
(3) Multiply the remainder under sub. (2) by the percentage under sub. (1).
(1) This act first applies to forfeitures, assessments, and surcharges collected on the effective date of this subsection.
