13-1348a. Park commissioners or airport authority in certain cities; issuance of bonds for park, parkway, boulevard or airport purposes; election; pledge of income from airport facility, effect. Any city having a board of park commissioners created pursuant to K.S.A. 13-1346, and amendments thereto, or an airport authority established pursuant to K.S.A. 3-162 is hereby authorized to issue general obligation bonds of such city for the purpose of purchasing land for park, parkway, boulevard or airport purposes or for the construction, enlargement, reconstruction, repair or addition to or of any improvements to any such lands for any such purposes or any such lands and any such improvements. No bonds shall be issued under the authority conferred by this section until the question of the issuance of such bonds has been submitted to a vote of the qualified electors of the city at a general or regular city election or a special bond election and a majority of the electors voting on the question have voted in favor thereof.

In lieu of the foregoing election requirement where, by resolution of a board of park commissioners or an airport authority, net income of an airport facility is pledged to the municipality for payment of bonds issued hereunder, a resolution may be adopted by the governing body of the municipality stating the purpose for which such bonds are to be issued, and the total amount of the bonds proposed to be issued along with a finding by the governing body that revenues pledged by resolution of the board of park commissioners or airport authority will be sufficient to retire general obligation bonds issued hereunder. Such resolution and finding by the governing body of the municipality shall be published once each week for two consecutive weeks in the official newspaper of such municipality. Whereupon, such bonds may be issued unless a petition requesting an election on the proposition, signed by qualified electors of such city equal in number to not less than 2% of the electors of the municipality who voted at the last preceding general election, is filed with the clerk of such municipality within 60 days following the last publication of such resolution. In the event such petition is filed, the governing body of such municipality shall submit the proposition to the voters at an election called for such purpose and held not less than 30 days nor more than 60 days after the filing of such petition. No bonds shall be issued unless a majority of the electors voting on such proposition vote in favor thereof. Such election shall be called and held in the manner provided by the general bond law.

All such bonds shall be issued in accordance with the general bond law. The total amount of bonds outstanding at any one time and issued under this act shall not exceed 3% of the assessed value of all taxable tangible property within the city. Bonds issued under this act shall not be subject to or within the limitations prescribed by any other law limiting the amount of indebtedness of any such city.
