12-110b. Special fund for law enforcement and purchase of ambulance and firefighting equipment; tax levies, use of proceeds; protest petition and election; investment of fund. The governing body of any city proclaimed by the governor as a city of the first class not more than five years preceding the effective date of this act or hereafter and the governing body of any city of the second and third class is hereby authorized to make an annual tax levy of not to exceed two mills upon all the taxable tangible property in the city for the purpose of creating and providing a special fund to be used for law enforcement purposes or for the purchase of ambulance equipment or fire-fighting equipment, or both, for such city and to pay a portion of the principal and interest on bonds issued by such city under the authority of K.S.A. 12-1774, and amendments thereto. No city shall make an annual levy under the provisions of this section until the governing body of such city has adopted a resolution authorizing the making of such levy. Such resolution shall be published once each week for two consecutive weeks in the official city newspaper. After publication, an annual levy may be made unless a petition requesting an election upon the proposition of levying the tax, signed by not less than 5% of the qualified electors of the city, is filed with the county election officer within 30 days following the date of the last publication of the resolution. If such a petition is filed, no such annual levy shall be made without such proposition having been submitted to and having been approved by a majority of the electors voting thereon at the next primary or general election, or if such primary or general election does not take place within 60 days after the date the petition was filed, at a special election called and held thereon. All such special elections shall be called and held in the manner prescribed for the calling and holding of elections under the general bond law. The governing body may invest any portion of such special fund which is not currently needed in investments authorized by K.S.A. 12-1675, and amendments thereto, in the manner prescribed therein or in any obligation of any county, township, city or school district which has a bonded indebtedness not exceeding 15% of its total assessed valuation.
