19-4423.Abandonment of operation under act; certain counties, disposition of property, money, equipment, supplies. (a) Except as provided in subsection (b), any county operating under the provisions of this act may abandon such operation in the same manner as that provided in K.S.A. 19-4403 for the adoption of the provisions of the act except that the word "abandon" instead of the word "adopt" shall be used in the petition or resolution and upon the ballot and in the election proclamation. If a majority of the votes cast at the election upon such proposition shall be in favor of abandoning operations under the provisions of this act, the law enforcement agency and department are hereby abolished on January 1, next following the date of such election. All moneys, equipment and supplies of such agency and department shall be transferred to the county and all records of the department relating to the enforcement of city ordinances shall be transferred to the city marshal or chief of police of the city. In cities having no city marshal or chief of police such officer shall be appointed in like manner as that now provided by law for the filling of vacancies in such office. All records of the agency shall be filed in the office of the county clerk. All records of the department relating to the enforcement of the laws of the state shall be transferred to the county sheriff.

(b) In counties having a population of more than nine thousand six hundred (9,600) and less than ten thousand five hundred (10,500) and an assessed taxable tangible valuation of more than forty-five million dollars ($45,000,000) and not more than sixty-five million dollars ($65,000,000), the board of directors shall divide and return the property, money, equipment and supplies of the agency to the original law enforcement departments in such county in the same proportion as each department originally contributed to said agency.
