Any person whose adjudication is withheld pursuant to the provisions of F.S. § 318.14(9) or (10), shall also be assessed such cost. However, the assessment shall not be made against a person for a violation relating to the parking of vehicles with the exception of a violation of the handicapped parking laws. Said assessment shall constitute a teen court cost.


    The clerk of the courts shall collect the three dollar ($3.00) assessment established herein and shall remit the same to the board of county commissioners within ten (10) days after the end of each calendar month, less five (5) percent which is to be retained as fee income by the office of the clerk of the courts. The board shall deposit the moneys in a special revenue fund specifically for the operation and administration of the teen court. Any other money that may become available for establishing and operating teen courts shall be deposited into the fund as above stated.
