1243     (a)  Following approval by referendum as set forth in
1244paragraph (b), or following approval by a majority vote of its
1245board of county commissioners, a county may impose a "911" fee
1246to be paid by the local exchange subscribers within its
1247boundaries served by the "911" service. Proceeds from the "911"
1248fee shall be used only for "911" expenditures as set forth in
1249subparagraph 6. The manner of imposing and collecting said
1250payment shall be as follows:
1251     1.  At the request of the county subscribing to "911"
1252service, the telephone company shall, insofar as is practicable,
1253bill the "911" fee to the local exchange subscribers served by
1254the "911" service, on an individual access line basis, at a rate
1255not to exceed 50 cents per month per line (up to a maximum of 25
1256access lines per account bill rendered). However, the fee may
1257not be assessed on any pay telephone in this state. A county
1258collecting the fee for the first time may collect the fee for no
1259longer than 36 months without initiating the acquisition of its
1260"911" equipment.
1261     2.  Fees collected by the telephone company pursuant to
1262subparagraph 1. shall be returned to the county, less the costs
1263of administration retained pursuant to paragraph (c). The county
1264shall provide a minimum of 90 days' written notice to the
1265telephone company prior to the collection of any "911" fees.
1266     3.  Any county that currently has an operational "911"
1267system or that is actively pursuing the implementation of a
1268"911" system shall establish a fund to be used exclusively for
1269receipt and expenditure of "911" fee revenues collected pursuant
1270to this section. All fees placed in said fund, and any interest
1271accrued thereupon, shall be used solely for "911" costs
1272described in subparagraph 6. The money collected and interest
1273earned in this fund shall be appropriated for "911" purposes by
1274the county commissioners and incorporated into the annual county
1275budget. Such fund shall be included within the financial audit
1276performed in accordance with s. 218.39. A report of the audit
1277shall be forwarded to the department office within 60 days of
1278its completion. A county may carry forward on an annual basis
1279unspent moneys in the fund for expenditures allowed by this
1280section, or it may reduce its fee. However, in no event shall a
1281county carry forward more than 10 percent of the "911" fee
1282billed for the prior year. The amount of moneys carried forward
1283each year may be accumulated in order to allow for capital
1284improvements described in this subsection. The carryover shall
1285be documented by resolution of the board of county commissioners
1286expressing the purpose of the carryover or by an adopted capital
1287improvement program identifying projected expansion or
1288replacement expenditures for "911" equipment and service
1289features, or both. In no event shall the "911" fee carryover
1290surplus moneys be used for any purpose other than for the "911"
1291equipment, service features, and installation charges authorized
1292in subparagraph 6. Nothing in this section shall prohibit a
1293county from using other sources of revenue for improvements,
1294replacements, or expansions of its "911" system. A county may
1295increase its fee for purposes authorized in this section.
1296However, in no case shall the fee exceed 50 cents per month per
1297line. All current "911" fees shall be reported to the department
1298office within 30 days of the start of each county's fiscal
1299period. Any fee adjustment made by a county shall be reported to
1300the department office. A county shall give the telephone company
1301a 90-day written notice of such fee adjustment.
1302     4.  The telephone company shall have no obligation to take
1303any legal action to enforce collection of the "911" fee. The
1304telephone company shall provide quarterly to the county a list
1305of the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of any and all
1306subscribers who have identified to the telephone company their
1307refusal to pay the "911" fee.
1308     5.  The county subscribing to "911" service shall remain
1309liable to the telephone company for any "911" service,
1310equipment, operation, or maintenance charge owed by the county
1311to the telephone company.
1313As used in this paragraph, "telephone company" means an exchange
1314telephone service provider of "911" service or equipment to any
1315county within its certificated area.
1316     6.  It is the intent of the Legislature that the "911" fee
1317authorized by this section to be imposed by counties will not
1318necessarily provide the total funding required for establishing
1319or providing the "911" service. For purposes of this section,
1320"911" service includes the functions of database management,
1321call taking, location verification, and call transfer. The
1322following costs directly attributable to the establishment
1323and/or provision of "911" service are eligible for expenditure
1324of moneys derived from imposition of the "911" fee authorized by
1325this section: the acquisition, implementation, and maintenance
1326of Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) equipment and "911"
1327service features, as defined in the Florida Public Service
1328Commission's lawfully approved "911" and related tariffs and/or
1329the acquisition, installation, and maintenance of other "911"
1330equipment, including call answering equipment, call transfer
1331equipment, ANI controllers, ALI controllers, ANI displays, ALI
1332displays, station instruments, "911" telecommunications systems,
1333teleprinters, logging recorders, instant playback recorders,
1334telephone devices for the deaf (TDD) used in the "911" system,
1335PSAP backup power systems, consoles, automatic call
1336distributors, and interfaces (hardware and software) for
1337computer-aided dispatch (CAD) systems; salary and associated
1338expenses for "911" call takers for that portion of their time
1339spent taking and transferring "911" calls; salary and associated
1340expenses for a county to employ a full-time equivalent "911"
1341coordinator position and a full-time equivalent staff assistant
1342position per county for the portion of their time spent
1343administrating the "911" system; training costs for PSAP call
1344takers in the proper methods and techniques used in taking and
1345transferring "911" calls; expenses required to develop and
1346maintain all information (ALI and ANI databases and other
1347information source repositories) necessary to properly inform
1348call takers as to location address, type of emergency, and other
1349information directly relevant to the "911" call-taking and
1350transferring function; and, in a county defined in s.
1351125.011(1), such expenses related to a nonemergency "311"
1352system, or similar nonemergency system, which improves the
1353overall efficiency of an existing "911" system or reduces "911"
1354emergency response time for a 2-year pilot project that ends
1355June 30, 2003. However, no wireless telephone service provider
1356shall be required to participate in this pilot project or to
1357otherwise implement a nonemergency "311" system or similar
1358nonemergency system. The "911" fee revenues shall not be used to
1359pay for any item not listed, including, but not limited to, any
1360capital or operational costs for emergency responses which occur
1361after the call transfer to the responding public safety entity
1362and the costs for constructing buildings, leasing buildings,
1363maintaining buildings, or renovating buildings, except for those
1364building modifications necessary to maintain the security and
1365environmental integrity of the PSAP and "911" equipment rooms.
1366     7.  It is the goal of the Legislature that enhanced "911"
1367service be available throughout the state. Expenditure by
1368counties of the "911" fees authorized by this section should
1369support this goal to the greatest extent feasible within the
1370context of local service needs and fiscal capability. Nothing in
1371this section shall be construed to prohibit two or more counties
1372from establishing a combined emergency "911" telephone service
1373by interlocal agreement and utilizing the "911" fees authorized
1374by this section for such combined "911" service.
1376As used in this paragraph, "telephone company" means an exchange
1377telephone service provider of "911" service or equipment to any
1378county within its certificated area.
