(a) Whenever a petition signed by at least 5% of the qualified voters of the city or school district is filed with the clerk thereof, requesting the governing body of the city or school district to establish a recreation system and to levy an annual tax not to exceed one mill for such recreation system and to pay a portion of the principal and interest on bonds issued pursuant to K.S.A. 12-1774, and amendments thereto, the governing body of the city or school district shall submit the question of establishing a recreation system to the qualified voters thereof. Such election shall be called and held in the manner provided by the general bond law, and the cost of the election shall be borne by such city or school district.

(b) A petition requesting the governing bodies of a city and school district to establish a joint recreation system and signed by at least 5% of the qualified voters of the city or school district may be filed with the clerk of the city or school district. Upon receipt of the petition, the clerk shall set a day not less than five nor more than 10 days thereafter for the joint meeting of the two governing bodies for the consideration of the petition. Notice of the receipt of the petition and the date and place of the joint meeting shall be given immediately by the clerk to the executive officer of the city and school district by registered mail. If the petition is found sufficient, the proposition shall be submitted to the qualified voters within the city or school district, whichever has the greater assessed valuation. Such election shall be called and held in the manner provided by the general bond law, and the cost of the election shall be borne equally by the city and the school district.

(c) The governing body of any city and any school district may initiate the establishment of a joint district recreation system by adopting a joint ordinance or resolution proposing to establish a joint recreation system and to levy an annual tax not to exceed one mill for such recreation system and to pay a portion of the principal and interest on bonds issued pursuant to K.S.A. 12-1774, and amendments thereto. The proposal shall be submitted for approval by the voters of the city or school district, whichever has the greater assessed valuation, at an election called and held in the manner provided by the general bond law, and the cost of the election shall be borne equally by the city and the school district.

(d) Upon approval of the proposition by a majority of those voting on it at the election, the governing body of the city or school district if acting independently or the governing bodies of a city and school district acting jointly, by appropriate resolution or ordinance, shall provide for the establishment, maintenance and conduct of such recreation system as they deem advisable and practicable and shall appoint a recreation commission as provided by K.S.A. 12-1926 to be vested with the powers, duties and obligations necessary for the conduct of such recreation system.
