19-2786h.Same; tax levies for additional police protection; contracts with sheriff. The governing body of any improvement district may annually levy a tax, which shall be in addition to all other levies or taxes authorized by law, in an amount not to exceed three mills, to be used for additional police protection in the district as hereinafter set out. No such tax levy shall be authorized without first having been submitted to and been approved by a majority of the electors of the district voting at an election called and held thereon. Such election shall be called and held in the manner prescribed for the calling and holding of bond elections under the provisions of K.S.A. 10-120. Any such improvement district making such levy shall contract with the sheriff of the county wherein such improvement district is located for the furnishing of specific police protection within the district by the use of sheriff's deputies and equipment. The annual amount to be paid by such improvement district to the sheriff of such county from the proceeds of the levy shall not exceed the amount to be raised by the tax levy authorized herein. Such contract shall be in such form as the parties may agree but shall be subject to the approval of the attorney general of Kansas. Notwithstanding the provisions of any other law to the contrary, the salary and general budget limitations of any sheriff of any such county is hereby raised by the amount that the sheriff is to receive under the terms of a contract with the improvement district and such amount so received may be budgeted and expended by the sheriff for salaries, equipment or any other purpose as may be otherwise allowed by law.
