Any money remaining in the special account after construction of the memorial is completed shall be used for the care, maintenance, repair, and additions to the memorial, or for any other purpose deemed appropriate by the committee. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, except as provided by RSA 4:9-k, III, the committee may expend the money raised, once accepted as a gift and without the approval of governor and council, to contract for the construction and perpetual maintenance of the memorial.
III. The committee shall remain in existence upon the completion of the public works employee memorial for the purpose of overseeing maintenance and approving any change to the memorial, such as the addition of names to the memorial. Any site change for the memorial shall be made under the supervision of the director of operations of the department of transportation, according to the provisions of RSA 4:9-i, II.
