32-860.Same; pledge of revenues. (a) The secretary shall, by rules and regulations adopted in accordance with K.S.A. 32-805, and amendments thereto, prescribe and collect reasonable rates, fees, tolls or charges for the services, facilities and commodities rendered and provided at each specific project of the department, the revenues of which have been pledged to the payment of bonds issued under K.S.A. 32-857 through 32-864 and shall revise such rates, fees, tolls or charges from time to time whenever necessary to insure that the revenues to be derived therefrom shall be fully sufficient to pay principal of and interest on such bonds. The gross revenues derived by the department from the operation of any part or parts of a specific project of the department may be pledged to the payment of such principal and interest. It is specifically provided that the department may, on any land under its control, erect and operate or lease cabins, hotels, lodges, restaurants and other facilities for the public and make use of the recreational facilities surrounding such improvements.

(b) The secretary may, in conjunction with any bonds issued for the erection, extension or improvement of any lodges, hotels, cabins, restaurants or other facilities in connection with a specific project, secure leases from competent and reliable individuals or corporations, which leases will provide for rental incomes sufficient to meet the requirements of principal, interest, insurance and maintenance of the property to be constructed. The determination of the secretary that the rental rates from any such lease are sufficient to meet the requirements of principal, interest, insurance and maintenance shall be final and conclusive. All personal property deemed necessary by the secretary to equip such cabins, hotels, lodges and restaurants may be purchased by the department through the purchasing division of the state department of administration. The secretary shall have the power to reject any and all bids. All revenues which may be received by the secretary for the use of such buildings, in whole or in part, shall be regarded as are other revenues of the project and shall be subject to pledge to the payment of any bonds issued in connection therewith. Each bond shall recite in substance that such bond and the interest thereon is payable from the revenues pledged to the payment thereof and that such bond does not constitute a debt of the state of Kansas or of the secretary or department within the meaning of any constitutional or statutory limitation.

(c) The department may collect rates, fees, tolls or charges for the use of specific projects which shall have been improved by funds acquired through bond issuance and such rates, fees, tolls or charges may be pledged for the payment of bonds and interest, except that no tolls or charges shall be imposed by the secretary for the use of highways or bridges unless constructed as a part of the bond project.
