  260.831.  Collection of fee by operator, payment required — separate surcharge, transmittal of funds. — 1.  Each operator of a solid waste sanitary or demolition landfill in any county wherein a landfill fee has been approved by the voters pursuant to section 260.830 shall collect a charge equal to the charge authorized by the voters in such election, not to exceed one dollar and fifty cents per ton or its volumetric equivalent of solid waste accepted.  Such fee shall be collected in addition to any fee authorized or imposed pursuant to the provisions of section 260.330, and shall be paid to such operator by all political subdivisions, municipalities, corporations, entities or persons disposing of solid waste or demolition waste, whether pursuant to contract or otherwise, and notwithstanding that any such contract may provide for collection, transportation and disposal of such waste at a fixed fee.  Any such contract providing for collections, transportation and disposal of such waste at a fixed fee which is in force on August 28, 2007, shall be renegotiated by the parties to the contract to include the additional fee imposed by this section.  Each such operator shall submit the charge, less collection costs, to the governing body of the county, which shall dedicate such funds for use by the industrial development authority within the county and such funds shall be used by the county commission or authority for economic development within the county.  Collection costs shall be the same as established by the department of natural resources pursuant to section 260.330, and shall not exceed two percent of the amount collected pursuant to this section.

  2.  The charges established in this section shall be enumerated separately from any disposal fee charged by the landfill.  After January 1, 1994, the fee authorized under section 260.830 and this section shall be stated as a separate surcharge on each individual solid waste collection customer's invoice and shall also indicate whether the county commission or economic development authority receives the funds.  Moneys transmitted to the governing body of the county shall be no less than the amount collected less collection costs and in a form, manner and frequency as the governing body may prescribe.  Failure to collect such charge shall not relieve the operator from responsibility for transmitting an amount equal to the charge to the governing body.
