Q May a county use excess 911 funds generated under Section 19-5-313 for maintenance of ambulances?

A No. Such expenditures would not fall within the statutorily allowed purposes for which excess funds may be used: identifying roads, highways and streets; development of county or district communications and paging systems; or “other administrative costs such as management personnel, maintenance personnel and related building and operational
requirements” of the 911 system. (Attorney General’s Opinion to Woodard, dated October 7, 2011)
