14-6,109.Same; city authorized to issue bonds to supplement county funds, when; notice; protest petition; election. Whenever the board of trustees of a county hospital, such as described in K.S.A. 14-6,108, shall adopt and file with the city clerk of any such city a resolution stating that the amount of money derived from the sale of the bonds described in K.S.A. 14-6,108 is insufficient to properly and adequately construct such enlargement and addition to the county hospital and to properly and adequately equip and furnish the same, the governing body of such city is hereby authorized to issue the bonds of such city in an amount not exceeding seventy-five thousand dollars ($75,000), the proceeds thereof to be used to supplement the funds derived by the issuance of bonds by the county for the construction of such enlargement and addition to the county hospital and for the equipping and furnishing the same: Provided, That before the issuance of any such bonds, the governing body of the city shall cause to be published for two (2) consecutive weeks in the official city paper a notice of its intention to issue such bonds and unless there is filed in the office of the city clerk within thirty (30) days after the first publication of said notice a petition signed by not less than ten percent (10%) of the qualified electors of said city, determined on the basis of the total vote for the office of mayor at the last preceding general city election, protesting the issuance of such bonds, the governing body may proceed to issue and sell such bonds. If within said thirty (30) days a sufficient protest petition is filed with the city clerk, the governing body shall submit the question of issuing such bonds at a regular city election or a special election called for such purpose.

If a majority of those voting on such proposition shall vote in the affirmative, the governing body of the city shall proceed to issue and sell said bonds in accordance with the provisions of the general bond law, and none of the debt limitations provided by law shall apply to bonds issued under this act. The proceeds from the sale of such bonds shall be paid by the city to the board of trustees of such county hospital and shall be used, together with the amount previously provided by the county, for the construction of such enlargement and addition to the county hospital and for the equipping and furnishing the same.
