SECTION 303
Establishment of surcharge for system costs
County (CNT) CHAPTER 11, ARTICLE 6
§ 303. Establishment of surcharge for system costs. 1.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any law to the contrary, any
municipality of this state, acting through its board, is hereby
authorized and empowered to adopt, amend or repeal local laws to impose
a surcharge in an amount not to exceed thirty-five cents per access line
per month on the customers of every service supplier within such
municipality to pay for the costs associated with obtaining, operating
and maintaining the telecommunication equipment and telephone services
needed to provide an enhanced 911 emergency telephone system to serve
such municipality, provided, however, that any municipality that is a
city having a population of one million or more is hereby authorized and
empowered to adopt, amend or repeal local laws to impose a surcharge in
an amount not to exceed one dollar per access line per month on the
customers of every service supplier within such municipality to pay for
the costs associated with obtaining, operating and maintaining the
telecommunication equipment and telephone services needed to provide an
enhanced 911 emergency telephone system to serve such municipality.

2. Any such local law shall state the amount of the surcharge, the
date on which the service supplier shall begin to add such surcharge to
the billings of its customers and, to the extent practicable, the date
on which such E911 service is to begin. Such local law may authorize the
service supplier to begin billing its customers for such surcharge prior
to the date the E911 system service is to begin.

3. Any service supplier within a municipality which has imposed a
surcharge pursuant to the provisions of this article shall be given a
minimum of forty-five days written notice prior to the date it shall
begin to add such surcharge to the billings of its customers or prior to
any modification to or change in the surcharge amount.
