(a) Whenever the governing body of any improvement district which is located adjacent to any park or recreation area within Wabaunsee county determines that the maximum speed prescribed by law is greater than is reasonable and safe under the conditions found to exist upon any highway or part of a highway located within such improvement district, the governing body, by resolution, may determine and declare a reasonable and safe maximum limit thereon. Such resolution shall be published once each week for two consecutive weeks in the official county newspaper and a copy thereof filed with the board of county commissioners of the county. Speed limits fixed pursuant to this section shall become effective only after appropriate signs giving notice thereof are erected upon the highway or part thereof affected.

(b) The authority of any improvement district to fix speed limits upon any highway or part thereof under the provisions of this section shall cease and terminate on the date which the county in which the district is located determines and declares and places in effect a county speed limit upon the same highway or part thereof.

(c) Violations of any speed limit fixed pursuant to this section shall be prosecuted in the district court of Wabaunsee county.

(d) For purposes of this section, the governing body of an improvement district specified in subsection (a), shall be deemed a "local authority" for purposes of K.S.A. 8-1432 and 8-1560, and amendments thereto.
