Editor's Note: See Art. II, Monthly Charge, of this chapter.
[Adopted 3-21-1995 by Ord. No. 31]
A monthly charge shall be levied on all telephone service users who will have access to the Grant County enhanced 911 system to pay for the recurring and nonrecurring charges incurred in connection with the installation and operation of the enhanced 911 telephone service. Said monthly charges shall be billed to service telephone users having access to the Grant County enhanced 911 system in the monthly telephone bills sent by Farmers Telephone Company, Cuba City Telephone Company, Dickeyville Telephone Corporation, Grantland Telecom, GTE-North Inc., PTI Communications, Inc., Richland-Grant Telephone Cooperative, Inc., and TDS Telecom, Inc., to said telephone service users in Grant County (and service users located outside of Grant County who have access to the Grant County enhanced 911 service system, subject to the approval of the Wisconsin Public Service Commission). Every service user billed for said enhanced 911 charge shall be liable for payment of said charge.
[1]
Editor's Note: Amended at time of adoption of Code (see Ch. 1, General Provisions, Art. I).
The monthly charge to be billed to service users of Grant County (and service users located outside of Grant County who have access to the Grant County enhanced 911 service system, subject to the approval of the Wisconsin Public Service Commission) for an enhanced 911 system shall be calculated by dividing the costs related to establishing the enhanced 911 system in Grant County by the total number of exchange access lines, or their equivalents, which are in the County and which are capable of accessing that system. Said monthly charge for recurring and nonrecurring costs of the enhanced 911 system shall not exceed the limitations contained in § 146.70, Wis. Stats.
In no event shall any service user be charged for the costs of the enhanced 911 system until said system is operational.
Any service user outside Grant County boundary lines who will have access to the Grant County enhanced 911 system shall also be billed for the recurring and nonrecurring charges incurred for the Grant County enhanced 911 telephone service system in the same manner and subject to the same limitations set forth above for service users located in Grant County, subject to the approval of the Wisconsin Public Service Commission. If the Wisconsin Public Service Commission does not approve the charging of service users outside Grant County boundary lines who will have access to the enhanced 911 system, said service users outside Grant County will not be charged.
