The governing body may: (a) Pay the cost out of the general fund or other proper fund or may levy an annual tax upon all taxable tangible property in the city to pay the cost and to pay a portion of the principal and interest on bonds issued by such city under the authority of K.S.A. 12-1774, and amendments thereto; (b) provide service charges to be paid by those receiving service, which charges may be graduated according to the amount of garbage or trash of the party receiving the service and the frequency of collection, with penalties for failure to pay when due; or (c) pay a part of the expense out of the general fund or other proper fund and by such a tax levy and the rest by service charges. When service is provided as a municipal function and funds are insufficient for the purchase of equipment, the acquiring of land and the construction of buildings, incinerators or other structures, bonds may be issued payable by a general tax or by revenue from service charges, but no bonds shall be issued until a resolution is adopted by the governing body providing for the issue thereof and the same is published once each week for two consecutive weeks in the official city newspaper. After the adoption of such resolution such bonds may be issued unless a petition in opposition to the same, filed by not less than 5% of the electors of such city, is filed with the county election officer within 30 days following the publication of the resolution. If such petition is filed, the governing body shall submit the question to the voters at an election called for such purpose or at the next general city election. If authorized by the favorable vote of a majority of those voting on the proposition at the election, such bonds may be issued.
