75-6112. Same; judgments against municipalities, payment; periodic payments, conditions; interest; structured annuities. (a) Upon motion of a municipality against whom final judgment has been rendered for a claim within the scope of this act, the court in accordance with subsection (b) may include in such judgment a requirement that the judgment be paid in whole or in part by periodic payments. Periodic payments may be ordered paid over any period of time not exceeding 10 years. Any periodic payment upon becoming due and payable under the terms of the judgment shall constitute a separate judgment. Any judgment ordering any such payments shall specify the total amount awarded, the amount of each payment, the interval between payments and the number of payments to be paid under the judgment. Judgments paid pursuant to this section shall bear interest as provided in K.S.A. 16-204 and amendments thereto. For good cause shown, the court may modify such judgment with respect to the amount of such payments and the number of payments to be made or the interval between payments, but the total amount of damages awarded by such judgment shall not be subject to modification in any event and periodic payments shall not be ordered paid over a period in excess of 10 years. Nothing herein shall be construed to prohibit the use of structured annuities to satisfy judgments.

(b) A court may order periodic payments only if the court finds that:

(1) Payment of the judgment is not totally covered by insurance coverage obtained therefor; and

(2) funds for the current budget year and other funds of the municipality which lawfully may be utilized to pay judgments are insufficient to finance both the adopted budget of expenditures for the year and the payment of that portion of the judgment not covered by insurance obtained therefor.
