Notwithstanding the provisions of any law to the contrary, the county of

authorized and empowered to adopt, amend or repeal local laws to impose
a surcharge, in addition to the surcharge established and imposed under
section three hundred three of this chapter, in an amount not to exceed
sixty-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 (E911) emergency telephone system to serve such county.

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.

surcharge pursuant to the provisions of this section 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.

section shall be imposed on a per access line basis on all current bills
rendered for local exchange access service within the 911 service area.

5. No such surcharge shall be imposed upon more than seventy-five
exchange access lines per customer per location.
