SECTION 469



469.  Upon the approval of the county, funds available for the
purposes of this chapter shall be used for the costs of operation of
approved programs. Not more than 10 percent of funds available for
the purposes of this chapter shall be used to finance the
administration of the program by a county with a population of
500,000 or more persons, and no more than 20 percent may be so used
if its population is less than that amount. All moneys allocated for
the purposes of this chapter shall be apportioned and distributed to
programs in the county, taking into account the relative population
and needs of a community as well as the availability of existing
dispute resolution facilities offering alternatives to the formal
judicial system. If any program receives funding from any other
county fee enhancements collected for the purpose of funding
alternative dispute resolution services, the county shall consider
that fact in determining the appropriate level of funding for a
particular program. The methods of payment or reimbursement for
dispute resolution costs shall be specified by the county and may
vary among programs. All such arrangements shall conform to the
regulations of the advisory council.
