80-1503.Same; tax levy. (a) Townships are hereby authorized and empowered to levy a special tax not to exceed one mill on all tangible property in the township not including a corporate city in a sufficient amount to join with a municipality or township for the purposes as provided in K.S.A. 80-1501, and amendments thereto, or to pay the compensation agreed upon by contract under authority of K.S.A. 80-1502, and amendments thereto.

(b) The township board, by adopting the appropriate resolution, may levy a tax of more than one mill for the purposes authorized by subsection (a). Any resolution increasing the amount of the tax currently levied by the township board and any subsequent increase thereof shall be published once each week for two consecutive weeks in a paper of general circulation within the township. The township board may make such levy unless, within 30 days following final publication of the resolution, a protest petition signed by 10% of the qualified voters of the township is filed with the township clerk. If a sufficient petition is filed, such additional tax shall not be levied until approved by a majority of the voters voting at an election thereon. Such election shall be called and held in the manner provided by the general bond law. If a levy is imposed pursuant to this subsection, no other levies for the purposes authorized by subsection (a) shall be made on such property.

(c) Counties are hereby authorized and empowered to levy an annual tax on all the taxable tangible property in such county for the purposes as provided in K.S.A. 80-1501, and amendments thereto, or to pay the compensation agreed upon by contract under authority of K.S.A. 80-1502, and amendments thereto, and to pay a portion of the principal and interest on bonds issued under the authority of K.S.A. 12-1774, and amendments thereto, by cities located in the county.
