38-534.Same; issuance of bonds in counties party to undertaking, when; election provisions. The board of county commissioners of any county party to a joint undertaking as authorized by this act is hereby empowered by resolution and order of said board to submit to the qualified electors of the county at a general or special election the question of the issuance of the bonds of said county in an amount not exceeding two hundred thousand dollars ($200,000) for the purpose of providing funds for the construction, enlargement, remodeling, equipping and furnishing the said detention home or juvenile farm and the acquisition of necessary ground therefor or for any one or more of such purposes. Action by the board of county commissioners as herein authorized may be compelled by there being presented to said board a petition signed by twenty-five percent (25%) of the electors of said county as evidenced by the total vote cast in said county for secretary of state at the last preceding general election.

The board of county commissioners shall submit the question to the qualified electors of the county at the next general election to be held in the county, or if no general election shall be held within six (6) months from the date said petition is presented, then at a special election which shall be called for that purpose, if requested in the petition. On submitting any such proposition to the electors of the county at a general or special election the ballots shall have printed thereon the nature of the proposal, and if a majority of the votes cast at such general or special election, shall be in favor of the issuance of bonds for the purpose of constructing, enlarging, remodeling, equipping and furnishing the same, and the purchase of such ground as may be necessary, or for any one or more of such purposes, it shall be the duty of the board of county commissioners to take action forthwith for the issuance of such bonds: Provided, That no such bonds shall be issued until and unless the other county or counties shall likewise have authorized the issuance of bonds for such purpose or purposes in the amount agreed upon by the boards of county commissioners parties to the joint undertaking.

The question of the issuance of bonds may be submitted to the electors of the county at the same time and as a part of the submission of the question of establishing of a detention home or juvenile farm as authorized by K.S.A. 38-528. All bonds issued under the authority of this section shall be issued, sold, delivered and retired in accordance with the provisions of the general bond law.
