12-631. Ordinance requiring certain property owners to make sewer connections; costs; no-fund warrants, when; tax levies. Any city may in the manner hereinafter provided by ordinance require persons and property owners owning buildings within such city, which buildings are, or shall be located near a sewer, or in a block within any sewer district in said city through which a sewer extends, to make such connections with the sewer system, as may be necessary in the judgment of the board of health or in the event such city does not have a board of health, in the judgment of the governing body for the protection of the health of the public, for the purpose of disposing of all substances from any such building affecting the public health which may be lawfully and properly disposed of by means of such sewer, and if any person or persons, shall fail, neglect or refuse to so connect any building or buildings with the sewer system as herein provided for, for more than 10 days after being notified in writing by the board of health or governing body of such city to do so, such city may cause such buildings to be connected with said sewer system, or may advertise for bids for the construction and making of such sewer connections, and contract therefor with the lowest responsible bidder or bidders, and may assess the costs and expense thereof against the property and premises so connected in the manner provided by law. All costs incurred by the city under the provisions of this section may be financed, until the assessment is paid, out of the general fund or by the issuance of no-fund warrants. Whenever no-fund warrants are issued under the authority of this act the governing body of such city shall make a tax levy at the first tax levying period for the purpose of paying such warrants and the interest thereon. All such tax levies shall be in addition to all other levies authorized or limited by law and shall not be subject to the aggregate tax levy prescribed in article 19 of chapter 79 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated, and amendments thereto. Such warrants shall be issued, registered, redeemed and bear interest in the manner and in the form prescribed by K.S.A. 79-2940, and amendments thereto, except they shall not bear the notation required by said section and may be issued without the approval of the state board of tax appeals. All moneys received from special assessments levied under the provisions of this section shall, when paid, be placed in the general fund of the city.
