  (2)  The application shall be accompanied by a technical assistance report.  The application and the technical assistance report shall be in such form and contain such information, financial or otherwise, as prescribed by the board.

  (3)  This section shall not preclude any applicant or borrower from joining in a cooperative project with any other political subdivision or with any state or federal agency or entity in a 911 communications service project, provided that all other requirements of this section have been met.

  2.  Applications may be approved for loans only in those instances where the applicant has furnished the board information satisfactory to assure that the project cost will be recovered during the repayment period of the loan.  In no case shall a loan be made to an applicant unless the approval of the governing body of the applicant to the loan agreement is obtained and a written certification of such approval is provided, where applicable.  Repayment periods are to be determined by the board.

  3.  The board shall approve or disapprove all applications for loans which are sent by certified or registered mail or hand delivered and received by the board upon a schedule as determined by the board.

  4.  Each applicant to whom a loan has been made under this section shall repay such loan, with interest.  The rate of interest shall be the rate required by the board.  The number, amounts, and timing of the payments shall be as determined by the board.

  5.  Any applicant who receives a loan under this section shall annually budget an amount which is at least sufficient to make the payments required under this section.

  6.  Repayment of principal and interest on loans shall be credited to the Missouri 911 service trust fund established under section 190.420.

  7.  If a loan recipient fails to remit a payment to the board in accordance with this section within sixty days of the due date of such payment, the board shall notify the director of the department of revenue to deduct such payment amount from first, the prepaid wireless emergency telephone service charge remitted to the county or city under section 190.460; and if insufficient to affect repayment of the loan, next, the regular apportionment of local sales tax distributions to that county or city.  Such amount shall then immediately be deposited in the Missouri 911 service trust fund and credited to the loan recipient.

  8.  All applicants having received loans under this section shall remit the payments required by subsection 4 of this section to the board or such other entity as may be directed by the board.  The board or such other entity shall immediately deposit such payments in the Missouri 911 service trust fund.

  9.  Loans made under this section shall be used only for the purposes specified in an approved application or loan agreement.  In the event the board determines that loan funds have been expended for purposes other than those specified in an approved application or loan agreement or any event of default of the loan agreement occurs without resolution, the board shall take appropriate actions to obtain the return of the full amount of the loan and all moneys duly owed or other available remedies.

  10.  Upon failure of a borrower to remit repayment to the board within sixty days of the date a payment is due, the board may initiate collection or other appropriate action through the provisions outlined in subsection 7 of this section, if applicable.

  11.  If the borrower is an entity not covered under the collection procedures established in this section, the board, with the advice and consent of the attorney general, may initiate collection procedures or other appropriate action pursuant to applicable law.

  12.  The board may, at its discretion, audit the expenditure of any loan, grant, or expenditure made or the computation of any payments made.

  13.  The board shall not approve any application made under this section if the applicant has failed to return the board's annual survey of public safety answering points as required by the board under section 650.330.
