13-10,115.Major traffic streets in certain cities in counties over 120,000; resolution; protests; election; temporary notes and bonds; special assessments and payments by city. The governing body of any city located in a county having a population of more than 120,000 and an assessed tangible valuation of more than $150,000,000 may by resolution declare any street to be in its opinion a major traffic street and declare its intention of improving or reimproving such street. Such resolution shall describe in general terms the improvement or reimprovement to be made and shall provide that the cost or a stated percentage of the cost thereof shall be paid by the city at large out of the fund for the improvement and maintenance of streets or by the issuance of bonds. The resolution shall be published once each week for two consecutive weeks in the official city paper. If, within 90 days after the last publication of the resolution, there is filed in the office of city clerk a protest signed by qualified electors equal in number to not less than 2% of those who voted at the last general city election, an election shall be called and held within 90 days after the filing of the protest.

The protest shall be signed personally by each person protesting and shall give the street address of such signer. The protest need not all be on one sheet but each sheet shall bear an affidavit of one of the qualified signers of the protest (whose name need not be on the particular sheet) that the qualified signer personally saw each person whose signature purports to be on the sheet sign the protest and that the person who signed the protest was the person whose name such person signed.

The election procedure shall be substantially as provided for bond elections in K.S.A. 10-120, and amendments thereto. An estimate of the cost of the improvement may or may not be included in the resolution and in the notice of election and in the proposition as stated on the ballot. If no sufficient protest is filed or if there is an election and a majority of those voting at the election vote in favor of the improvement, the governing body shall by ordinance provide for the improvement.

If the cost is to be paid by bonds, temporary notes may be issued as provided by K.S.A. 10-123, and amendments thereto, during the progress of the work, and after the improvement is completed and the total cost ascertained, bonds shall be issued by ordinance. If only a percentage (which shall not be less than 50%) of the cost is paid by the city, the remaining cost shall be assessed against the adjacent real property, without regard to the value of the improvements, to the middle of the block on either side and, as to unplatted territory, as provided in K.S.A. 12-606, and amendments thereto, without regard to grading district and not by blocks. The portion of the cost to be assessed against the property in the improvement district shall be apportioned in the manner provided in K.S.A. 12-608 or 12-6a08, and amendments thereto.
