(a) Subject to the provisions of K.S.A. 19-270, where any area lying within the boundaries of a main sewer district is served by lateral sewers privately built and is not included within the boundaries of any lateral sewer district the governing body may authorize the connection of lateral sewers with the main sewer system and thereafter upon its own motion and a recommendation of the sewer district engineer may organize and incorporate such area as a lateral sewer district, or attach the same to some other lateral sewer district, first giving notice by publication for two consecutive weeks in a newspaper having general circulation within such county of the time, place and purpose of a final hearing upon such proposal, at which hearing any interested parties may appear and be heard. Whenever any such area is organized as a lateral sewer district or is attached to another lateral sewer district and the lateral sewers therein at the time of such organization are not up to the standard of other lateral sewers of previously existing lateral sewer districts in the main sewer district, the governing body shall require the lateral sewers in such area to be brought up to the standard of previously constructed lateral sewers in such previously existing lateral sewer districts.
