12-5375. 911 fee moneys; approved uses. (a) The proceeds of the 911 fees imposed pursuant to this act, and any interest earned on revenue derived from such fee, shall be used only for necessary and reasonable costs incurred or to be incurred by PSAPs for: (1) Implementation of 911 services; (2) purchase of 911 equipment and upgrades; (3) maintenance and license fees for 911 equipment; (4) training of personnel; (5) monthly recurring charges billed by service suppliers; (6) installation, service establishment and nonrecurring start-up charges billed by the service supplier; (7) charges for capital improvements and equipment or other physical enhancements to the 911 system; or (8) the original acquisition and installation of road signs designed to aid in the delivery of emergency service. Such costs shall not include expenditures to lease, construct, expand, acquire, remodel, renovate, repair, furnish or make improvements to buildings or similar facilities. Such costs shall also not include expenditures to purchase subscriber radio equipment.

(b) If the 911 coordinating council, based upon information obtained from the PSAP reports or an audit of the PSAPs, determines that any PSAP has used any 911 fees for any purpose other than those authorized in this act, such PSAP shall repay all such funds used for any unauthorized purposes plus 10% to the LCPA for deposit in the 911 state grant fund. No such repayment of 911 fees shall be imposed pursuant to this section except upon the written order of the council. Such order shall state the unauthorized purposes for which the funds were used, the amount of funds to be repayed and the right of such PSAP to appeal to a hearing before the council. Any such PSAP may, within 15 days after service of the order, make a written request to the council for a hearing thereon. Hearings under this subsection shall be conducted in accordance with the provisions of the Kansas administrative procedure act.

(c) Any action of the council pursuant to subsection (b) is subject to review in accordance with the Kansas judicial review act.

(d) As long as the PSAP is working in good faith to use the 911 fees for expenditures authorized by this act, no repayment of 911 fees shall be required prior to January 1, 2013.

(e) This section shall take effect on and after January 1, 2012.
