12-4902. Establishment of home; acquisition of existing home; ordinance; protest; election; revenue bonds, limitation. The governing body of any such city may establish a home for the aged and acquire a site for and construct and equip a building or buildings and appurtenances for such purpose or may acquire by gift or purchase an existing adult care home to be used as a home for the aged. No such home shall be established or acquired if it would cause a duplication of any similar facility then located within such municipality unless the governing body finds, upon sufficient evidence, that such existing facility is inadequate to meet the needs of the residents of such city and the proposed home or home to be acquired would not substantially compete therewith. Such home for the aged shall be established or acquired by ordinance and such ordinance shall not take effect until 60 days after it is published in the official city paper. If within 60 days a petition signed by a number of electors of the city equal to not less than 5% of the number of electors who voted at the last preceding regular city election shall be filed in the office of the clerk of such city demanding that such ordinance be submitted to a vote of the electors it shall not take effect until submitted to a referendum and approved by a majority of the electors voting thereon. Such election shall be called, noticed, and the proposition stated on the ballot in like manner as charter ordinances are required to be submitted to a vote of the electors under the provisions of subsection (3) of section 5 of article 12 of the constitution of the state of Kansas, and the ordinance, if approved by the electors, shall take effect in like manner as charter ordinances under the subsection (3).

The ordinance establishing the home for the aged shall state the total estimated cost, if any, and the amount of revenue bonds, if any, that are to be issued to pay the cost of the acquisition of the site for, construction and equipment of the home for the aged or of the acquisition of an existing adult care home to be used as a home for the aged, and the total amount of such revenue bonds to be issued shall not exceed $2,000,000.
