13-1379.Same; costs; installments and interest; tax levy; special assessments; revenue bonds; leasing of parking facilities; method of operation; revenue from parking meters. The cost of acquisition and improvements of public parking stations may be levied and assessed in not to exceed 10 installments, with interest on the whole amount remaining due and unpaid each year at a rate of interest not exceeding the maximum rate of interest prescribed by K.S.A. 10-1009, and amendments thereto. Any owner of land within the benefit district may, within 30 days after the assessment ordinance is passed, pay the entire amount assessed against the land. The governing body of such city is hereby authorized to assess, levy and collect the cost of acquisition and improvement of such public parking stations as is assessed against the privately owned property in the benefit district and to levy a general tax on all the property in such city to pay such part of the cost thereof as is not assessed against the privately owned property in the benefit district 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.

No suit shall be maintained in any court to enjoin or in any way contest the validity of any special assessment for the cost of acquiring or improving such parking stations unless the same is instituted and summons served within 30 days from and after the date of the publications of the ordinance levying such assessment. Where a city has improved parking lots under the provisions of this act, such city shall have authority by resolution, which resolution shall be published once in the official city paper, and without the necessity of a petition therefor to improve such parking lots including the construction thereon of additional facilities and shall pay for such improvements by the issuance of revenue bonds. The governing body of the city is hereby authorized to lease such parking facilities or to provide any method of operation for such facilities which in their opinion will be of greatest benefit to the public. No suit shall be maintained in any court to enjoin or in any way contest the validity of the proceedings of the governing body of the city for further improving already improved parking lots under the provisions of this act, unless the proceedings are instituted and summons served within 30 days from and after the date of the publication of the resolution authorizing the improvement.

"Revenue bonds" as used in this act means bonds issued by any municipality in this state, which are paid exclusively from the net revenue derived from the operation of off-street parking stations and from parking meters in the city. Such revenue bonds shall not constitute in any case, a general obligation of such city, and the bonds, if and when issued, shall not be taken into consideration or account as a limitation on the power of such city to issue bonds for any and all other purposes heretofore or hereafter authorized by law, with relation to a limitation upon the bonded indebtedness of the city. Revenue bonds issued under the provisions of this act shall mature serially or otherwise to conform to the plan of liquidation and payment of the bonds and interest thereon. The date of maturity of any of the bonds shall not be fixed for a longer period of time than 30 years after the date of issuance, and the bonds shall bear interest at a rate not to exceed the maximum rate of interest prescribed by K.S.A. 10-1009, and amendments thereto. Such city shall have no right or authority to levy taxes to pay the principal or interest of revenue bonds as defined herein and the provisions of K.S.A. 10-113, and amendments thereto, shall not apply to this act. Parking meters may be placed in off-street parking stations now or hereafter established.

The revenue derived from such off-street parking meters and the revenue derived from any other method of operation of such off-street parking facilities shall be maintained in a revolving operating fund which need not be budgeted except that there shall be shown in the annual published budget the total amount received from all street parking and off-street parking meters and facilities, and the amount spent during each budget year and the purposes, including payments on bonds and interest, for which spent. All sums necessary for the operation of off-street parking meters and facilities and on-street parking meters and facilities shall be a first claim on all revenue received from such parking meters and facilities. The net amount, after the deduction of the necessary operating expenses, may be pledged for the payment of any revenue bonds issued to pay for the improvement of off-street parking meters and facilities on any improved parking lots within such city.
