Prev Article 19. - FIRE DEPARTMENT OR COMPANYNext


80-1920. Fire departments in townships in certain counties; creation; procedure; warrants for equipment and facilities; tax levies. Subject to the provisions of K.S.A. 19-270, and amendments thereto, and upon the presentation of such petition, the township board of any such township shall create a township fire department. Such township board is hereby authorized and empowered to purchase fire-fighting equipment for the use of the fire department and to provide buildings for the housing and storage of the same. For the purpose of raising funds to pay the cost of such equipment and housing facilities, the township board is hereby empowered to issue no-fund warrants in an amount not exceeding $12,000. After the issuance of such no-fund warrants, the township board 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, such board, if it deems it advisable, may 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.

Such warrants shall be issued, registered, redeemed and bear interest in the manner and be in the form prescribed by K.S.A. 79-2940, and amendments thereto, except they shall not bear the notation required therein and may be issued without the approval of the state board of tax appeals. Any surplus existing after the redemption of the warrants shall be handled in the manner prescribed by K.S.A. 79-2940, and amendments thereto. None of the provisions of the cash-basis and budget laws of this state shall apply to any expenditures made, the payment of which has been provided for by the issuance of such no-fund warrants.
