12-646b.City of Halstead authorized to establish a flood control improvements fund. (a) The governing body of the city of Halstead, Kansas, may establish, by adoption of an ordinance, a flood control improvements fund. The ordinance establishing such fund, and any amendments thereto, may provide for the budgeted transfer of moneys from other city funds lawfully available for improvement purposes to the flood control improvements fund, including moneys in the city's federal general revenue sharing fund and general fund. The governing body of the city is hereby authorized to levy a tax upon all tangible taxable property within the city to finance any flood control improvements authorized pursuant to K.S.A. 12-635 to 12-646a, inclusive, and amendments thereto. Revenue derived from such levy shall be deposited in the flood control improvements fund. Any general property tax specifically levied for the use of such fund shall be authorized by ordinance adopted under the provisions of section 5 of article 12 of the Kansas constitution.

(b) Moneys in the flood control improvements fund may be used to finance, in whole or in part, any flood control improvement authorized pursuant to K.S.A. 12-635 to 12-646a, inclusive, and amendments thereto, and any other costs or expenses incurred thereunder. The ordinance may provide that disbursements from such fund may be made for engineering and other advance flood control improvement plans and studies and that reimbursements may be made to the fund from bond proceeds, special assessments or state or federal aid available for the completed project.

(c) Except for such reimbursed expenses, no moneys shall be credited to such special fund except as may be budgeted annually, or transferred by the annual budget from other funds. Such fund shall not thereafter be subject to the provisions of K.S.A. 79-2925 to 79-2937, inclusive, and amendments thereto. In making the budget of the city, the amounts credited to, and the amount on hand in, such special fund and the amount expended therefrom shall be shown thereon for the information of the taxpayers of the city. Moneys in such fund may be invested in accordance with the provisions of K.S.A. 10-131, and amendments thereto, with interest thereon credited to such fund.

(d) If the governing body of the city determines that money which has been transferred to such special fund or any part thereof is not needed for the purposes for which so transferred, the governing body, by adoption of a resolution, may transfer such amount not needed to the general or other fund from which it was derived and such transfer and expenditure thereof shall be subject to the budget requirement provisions of K.S.A. 79-2925 to 79-2937, inclusive, and amendments thereto.
