27-321.Same; power of city to establish and create; boundaries of authority; annexation, effect on bonded debt; rights of city and authority. This act shall empower any city to which this act applies to establish and create an authority, and shall empower such city and such authority to exercise the powers herein granted, and no action, proceeding or election, other than the adoption of the ordinance referred to in K.S.A. 27-319, shall be required prior to the establishment and creation of such authority or to authorize the exercise of any of the powers herein granted, any provisions of the laws of the state or of any city charter or ordinances to the contrary notwithstanding. The boundaries of any such authority shall be commensurate with the boundaries of the property acquired by the authority and the property so acquired need not be in a single contiguous area. All or any part of the real estate constituting a part of the property located within the boundaries of the authority may be annexed and taken within the corporate limits of the city in the same manner and to the same extent as any other real estate which is not owned or controlled by the city and any such real estate so annexed and taken within the corporate limits of the city shall be exempt from any bond indebtedness of the city incurred prior to the date of such annexation, and the city may exempt such real estate from any city taxes which the governing body of the city shall determine. A city which establishes and creates an authority under the provisions of this act and the authority created by such city shall have the same rights, privileges and immunities with respect to property located outside the municipal limits of such city as now exist for any property located within the limits of such municipality, including the right of eminent domain: Provided, That the right of eminent domain shall be exercised only by the authority with the approval of the governing body of the city in order to acquire property or an interest in or through air space which is essential, suitable or desirable for the development, improvement, operation or maintenance of a public airport. Such city shall also have the right to transfer and convey to such authority, without consideration, any public airport owned by such city.
