19-15,123. Additional courtrooms and facilities for probate and juvenile matters in counties over 300,000; no-fund warrants or general obligation bonds; tax levies. The board of county commissioners of any county in this state having a population of more than 300,000 may provide additional courtrooms, offices and other facilities as are required by the district court judge to carry out probate and juvenile matters. The quarters and facilities shall be constructed and furnished in available space of the courthouse. The board of county commissioners is hereby authorized to issue no-fund warrants or general obligation bonds for the purpose of paying all costs incurred in providing additional quarters and facilities. Before such warrants shall be issued the board of county commissioners shall have received from the chief judge of the district court a resolution certifying to the necessity of additional quarters. Such no-fund warrants shall be issued in the manner and form, bear interest and be redeemed as prescribed by K.S.A. 79-2940, and amendments thereto, except that warrants may be issued without approval of the state board of tax appeals, and without the notation required by K.S.A. 79-2940, and amendments thereto. The board of county commissioners shall make a tax levy at the first tax levying period after such warrants are issued, sufficient to pay such warrants and the interest thereon. In lieu of making only one tax levy, the board of county commissioners may, if it deems it advisable, make a tax levy each year for not to exceed five years in approximately equal installments for the purpose of paying the warrants and the interest thereon. All such tax levies shall be in addition to all other levies authorized or limited by law and shall not be subject to or within the aggregate tax levy limitation prescribed by article 19 of chapter 79 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated, and amendments thereto. None of the provisions of the state budget law shall apply to any expenditure which has been provided for by the issuance of warrants under this act. General obligation bonds issued under the authority of this act shall be issued in the manner prescribed by the general bond law but shall not be subject to or within any bonded debt limitation prescribed by any other law of this state and shall not be considered or included in applying any other law limiting bonded indebtedness.
