39-1453A. Fees. All expenses of the authority incurred in carrying out the provisions of this act shall be payable solely from funds provided under the authority of this act and no liability shall be incurred by the authority beyond the extent to which moneys shall have been provided under this act, except that for the purposes of meeting the necessary expenses of initial organization and operation until such date as the authority derives moneys from funds provided hereunder, the authority shall be empowered to borrow moneys as may be required for such necessary expenses of organization and operation. Such borrowed moneys shall be repaid within a reasonable time after the authority receives funds provided for under this act. When any application is made to the authority by any participating health institution for financial assistance to provide for its facilities, such application shall be accompanied by an "initial planning service fee" in an amount determined by the authority. Such initial planning service fees shall be included in the cost of the facilities to be financed and shall not be refundable by the authority whether or not any such application is approved. In addition to such initial fee, an "annual planning service fee" shall be paid to the authority by each participating health institution in an amount determined by the authority. Such annual planning service fee shall be paid on said dates or in installments as may be satisfactory to the authority. It is anticipated such fees shall be used for; (i) necessary expenses to determine the need of facilities in the area concerned and to that end the authority may utilize recognized voluntary and official health planning organizations and agencies at local, regional and state levels as well as the state statutory bodies having health planning responsibilities; (ii) necessary administrative expenses; and (iii) reserves for anticipated future expenses. In addition the authority may, for a negotiated fee, retain the services of any other public or private person, firm, partnership, association or corporation for the furnishing of services and data for use by the authority in determining the need and location of any such facilities for which application is being made or for such other services or surveys as the authority deems necessary to carry out the purposes of this act.
