Such bonds shall be made payable at such time as the governing body shall provide by ordinance; but none of such bonds shall be issued for a period of more than ten (10) years nor bear interest at a rate exceeding the maximum rate of interest prescribed by K.S.A. 10-1009: Provided,That no bonds be issued under the provisions of this act unless and until the question of the issuance of the same has been submitted to a vote of the electors of such city at a regular city election or at a special election called for that purpose and a majority of those voting on the question shall have declared by their votes to be in favor of the issuance of the bonds. Said election may be called by the governing body of the city at any time when they deem such action advisable. All bonds issued under this section shall be issued, registered, sold, delivered and retired in accordance with the provisions of the general bond law except as herein otherwise expressly provided.
