Any board of county commissioners participating as a member of the Kansas City area transportation district and the Kansas City area transportation authority, as established under K.S.A. 12-2514 to 12-2534, inclusive, and amendments thereto, is authorized to levy an annual tax not to exceed one-tenth of one (.10) mill on all taxable, tangible property in the county for the purpose of administering the Kansas City area transportation district and the Kansas City area transportation authority and to pay a portion of the principal and interest on bonds issued under the authority of K.S.A. 12-1774, and amendments thereto, by cities located in the county and any levy heretofore made in accordance with this act and prior to the effective date of this act is hereby legalized and validated. Any resolution shall provide that if a petition in opposition to the levy, signed by not less than five percent (5%) of the qualified electors of such county, is filed with the county commissioners within forty (40) days after the publication of the resolution, the levy will not be made until first approved at a question submitted election which shall be called for that purpose or at the next general election. Such resolution shall be published once each week for two (2) consecutive weeks in a newspaper having general circulation in the county. In the event that no petition as specified above is filed in accordance with the provisions of such notice, the county commissioners may make the levy authorized in the resolution. If such a petition is filed as provided in such notice, the county commissioners may notify the county election official of the date of an election to be held to submit the question of whether such levy shall be authorized. All of the qualified electors in the county shall be entitled to vote at such election. If a majority of the votes cast and counted at such election is in favor of the resolution, the governing body may make the levy.
