12-1688.Community historical museums; tax levies; increases, election. (a) Except as otherwise provided in subsection (b) of this section, when the provisions of this act shall have been adopted by an election, the commission shall annually, and not later than 20 days prior to the date for the publishing of the budget of such city or school district, certify its budget to such city or school district, which shall levy a tax sufficient to raise the amount required by such budget, but in no event more than one mill or the amount set out in the petition provided for in K.S.A. 12-1684, except that, when such petition shall have been submitted to a city and school district jointly such budget shall be certified to the city or school district, whichever shall be the larger in population, and the tax levied by such city or school district. After three years' operation the authority to levy the tax provided for in this section may be revoked by a majority of the electors voting at an election called in the same manner as the election authorizing the same. Upon such revocation all property and money belonging to such commission shall become the property of the city or school district levying the tax under this section.

(b) After any city or school district has begun to operate such a museum, it appearing to the satisfaction of the museum commission of a particular school district or city or of a city and school district jointly, that the budget should be increased so as to adequately meet the needs of the city or school district, such museum commission may submit a proposed program with the budget for carrying out the same to the levying authority which may then levy a tax sufficient to raise the amount required by the expanded budget, but not to exceed one mill, which levy shall be in addition to the one mill authorized by subsection (a) of this section.

No city or school district authorized to increase its levy under subsection (b) of this section shall make such increased levy until the question of making such tax levy is submitted to the qualified electors of the city or school district at the next general election or at a special election called for such purpose. Any special election held under the provisions of subsection (b) of this section shall be called and held in accordance with the provisions of K.S.A. 10-120, and amendments thereto. If a majority of the votes cast and counted on the question submitted at such election are in favor of such tax, the same may be made; but if a majority of the votes cast and counted on the question submitted at such election are not in favor thereof, such tax may not be levied.
