244.8. Subject to section 244.7, the by-law may prescribe terms and conditions for the collection of the amount exigible under this division.
Failing such terms and conditions, the rules provided for by the Act in respect of the collection of taxes or compensations, where the mode of tariffing imposed is a tax or a compensation, apply to the amount payable under this division.
The municipality may enter into an agreement with the operator of a telecommunications business under which the operator collects on behalf of the municipality all or part of an amount payable under this division and allotted to finance all or part of the property, services or activities relating to a “9-1-1 centre”; the agreement may provide for collection costs to be withheld from the amount collected. The municipality may also enter into an agreement with the operator under which the municipality assigns to the operator all or part of its claims resulting from the imposition of a mode of tariffing to cover the financing referred to in this paragraph. The municipality may give a mandate to the Fédération québécoise des municipalités locales et régionales (FQM) to enter on its behalf into an agreement under this paragraph.
An agreement entered into with a body referred to in the third paragraph concerning a “9-1-1 centre” does not require the authorization or approval of the Minister as an agreement involving a financial commitment for the municipality.
