     4  provided,  however,  that an additional annual service charge of twenty-
     5  five  dollars  shall  be  charged  for such plate.   Such annual service

    21  annual  service  charge  applicable  to  each such order, which shall be
    22  non-refundable, no such surety  bond  shall  be  required.  All  service
    23  charges  collected  pursuant to this section shall be deposited pursuant
