19-2106b.Same; enlargement of homes or additional homes; tax levy, use of proceeds; adoption and publication of resolution; protest petition and election; no-fund warrants; issuance of bonds. Whenever a county home has been established as authorized by K.S.A. 19-2106, the board of county commissioners may thereafter provide for the establishment of an additional home or homes, or for the enlargement of or addition to the home previously established and for the equipping, repairing, remodeling, or furnishing of such home or homes, enlargements, or additions. The county commissioners shall determine the amount necessary to be raised for such purposes which shall not exceed one percent (1%) of the assessed tangible valuation of the county, and may levy an annual tax of not to exceed two mills upon the taxable tangible property of the county, for the purpose of raising such funds and to pay a portion of the principal and interest on bonds issued under the authority of K.S.A. 12-1774, and amendments thereto, by cities located in the county. Before any taxes may be levied, the board of county commissioners shall adopt a resolution stating the proposed purpose, amount of the fund required therefor, and shall publish the same once each week for three consecutive weeks in the official county newspaper. Whereupon such levy may be made unless a petition requesting an election upon the proposition signed by electors equal in number to not less than ten percent (10%) of the electors of the county who voted for the secretary of state at the last preceding general election is filed with the county clerk within thirty (30) days following the last publication of such resolution. In the event such petition is filed, the board of county commissioners shall submit the question of the making of the improvement to the voters at an election called for that purpose and held within ninety (90) days after the last publication of the resolution or at the next primary or general election if held within that time and no such levies shall be made unless such proposition shall receive the approval of a majority of the votes cast thereon. Elections on the proposition shall be noticed and held and the vote canvassed in the same manner as provided in K.S.A. 19-2107. Said tax levies shall be in addition to all other tax levies authorized or limited by law and shall not be subject to nor within the aggregate county tax levy limit; and such county shall be authorized to issue no-fund warrants in the same manner as provided in K.S.A. 19-2106. If at any time prior to the time that moneys are available from such levy, the board of county commissioners shall deem it advisable to proceed with such construction or improvement the board may issue general obligation bonds of the county in the manner provided by the general bond law, in an amount which together with any moneys raised by the tax levy will not exceed the total amount stated in the resolution. All moneys received pursuant to this section shall be placed in the home for the aged fund, to be used for the purposes herein provided. Insofar as the same can be made applicable, the provisions of K.S.A. 19-2106 to 19-2116, inclusive, and amendments thereto, shall apply to any home or addition thereto established hereunder.
