If special assessments will be levied to finance all or a portion of the cost of a project, the municipality shall follow the assessment procedures in K.S.A. 12-6a01 et seq., and amendments thereto, except that:

(1) No assessment may be levied against the municipality at large;

(3) assessment installments may be levied as otherwise provided by this section.

(b) Prior to the date the municipality certifies its tax levy to the county clerk pursuant to K.S.A. 79-1801, and amendments thereto, if the method of financing for the project includes payment from the sources described in either subsection (c) or (d) of K.S.A. 2018 Supp. 12-17,147, and amendments thereto, the ordinance or resolution of the municipality that levies the assessments may provide that such assessment installments for any year may be reduced or eliminated to the extent that the municipality has received sufficient funds from the sources described in either subsection (c) or (d) of K.S.A. 2018 Supp. 12-17,147, and amendments thereto, to pay the debt service on any bonds issued under this act for the project which would have been paid by such assessment installment. The municipality shall not be required to refund any prepayment of assessments for any assessment installment which is reduced or eliminated after such prepayment is made to the municipality. Any prepayment of assessments under this act shall be done in compliance with K.S.A. 10-115, and amendments thereto.
