12-1936. Termination of school recreation system; conversion to city recreation system; mill levy; governing body. (a) The governing body of any school district the boundaries of which are located entirely within the corporate limits of a city that previously established a recreation system and the governing body of the city within which such school district is located may take joint action to initiate the conversion of the existing recreation system to a city recreation system by adopting a joint ordinance and resolution proposing to change the existing school district recreation system to a city recreation system and authorizing publication of a notice of intent to do so. Such notice of intent shall be published once each week for two consecutive weeks in the official city newspaper, and, if within 30 days after the last publication of the notice a petition is signed by at least 5% of the qualified voters of the city requesting an election upon such question, an election shall be called and held thereon. Such election shall be called and held in the manner provided by the general bond law, and the cost of the election shall be borne equally by the school district and the city. If no protest or no sufficient protest is filed or if an election is held and the proposition carries by a majority of those voting thereon, the governing bodies of the school district and the city, by joint resolution and ordinance, may provide for the conversion of the existing school district recreation system to a city recreation system effective as of the next succeeding July 1 subsequent to the publication of the notice of intent or the date of the election, whichever is later.

(b) The mill levy rate for a recreation commission established under subsection (a) shall not be subject to the one mill levy limitation for a new recreation system established in K.S.A. 12-1927, and amendments thereto.

(c) Any conversion of an existing school district recreation system to a city recreation system under subsection (a) shall provide for the transfer of the assets of the existing school district recreation system to the city recreation system, the assumption of the liabilities of the existing school district recreation system by the city recreation system and thereafter maintain and continue the operations of the city recreation system. 

(d) In connection with the conversion of a school district recreation system to a city recreation system under subsection (a), the members of the school district recreation commission shall serve the balance of their respective terms in office as members of the city recreation commission and, upon the expiration thereof, the members of the city recreation commission shall be appointed by the governing body of the city.
