12-619.Cost of main sewers, how determined; ordinance; lands not subject to assessment. If the estimated cost of the main sewer or drain of said system now or hereafter constructed shall be relatively large as compared with the estimated cost of the lateral sewers or drains tributary thereto, or if the said main sewer or drain shall be so located that it will or may receive the sewage or drainage from two or more districts, the governing body shall have power to pass an ordinance providing that the cost of such main sewer or drain below a certain designated point shall be borne by the city and paid in the manner provided in K.S.A. 12-624 for the payment of the cost of main sewers and drains now or hereafter constructed beyond the corporate limits of the city.
