38-529.Same; agreement for joint action by county commissioners; resolution; specifications for agreement; approval by attorney general. Before the boards of county commissioners shall provide a detention home or juvenile farm as authorized by K.S.A. 38-528, said boards shall enter into an agreement for joint or co-operative action pursuant to the provisions of this act. Appropriate action by resolution by each of such boards of county commissioners shall be necessary before any such agreement may enter into force. Such agreement shall specify the following:

(a) Its duration.

(b) The precise organization, composition and nature of any separate legal or administrative entity created thereby together with the powers delegated thereto.

(c) Its purpose or purposes.

(d) The manner of financing the joint undertaking and of establishing and maintaining a budget therefor.

(e) The permissible method or methods to be employed in accomplishing the partial or complete termination of the agreement and for disposing of property upon such partial or complete termination.

(f) Any other necessary and proper matters.

In the event that the agreement does not establish a separate legal entity to conduct the joint undertaking, the agreement shall, in addition to items (a), (c), (d), (e) and (f) listed above, contain the following: (1) Provision for an administrator or a joint board responsible for administering the joint undertaking; and in the case of a joint board, each county party to the agreement shall be represented; and (2) the manner of acquiring, holding and disposing of real and personal property used in the joint undertaking.

Every agreement made hereunder shall, prior to and as a condition precedent to its entry into force, be submitted to the attorney general who shall determine whether the agreement is in proper form and compatible with the laws of this state. The attorney general shall approve any agreement submitted to him hereunder unless he shall find that it does not meet the conditions set forth herein and shall detail in writing addressed to the boards of county commissioners concerned the specific respects in which the proposed agreement fails to meet the requirements of law. Failure of the attorney general to disapprove an agreement submitted hereunder within ninety (90) days of its submission shall constitute approval thereof.
