12-6a07. Apportionment of cost of improvement. (a) The city may pay such portion of the cost of the improvement as the governing body may determine, but not more than ninety-five percent (95%) of the total cost thereof. The share of the cost to be paid by the city at large shall be paid in the manner provided by K.S.A. 12-6a14.

(b) If any property deemed benefited shall by reason of any provision of law be exempt from payment of special assessments therefor, such assessment shall, nevertheless, be computed and shall be paid by the city at large.

History: L. 1957, ch. 99, § 7; L. 1968, ch. 305, § 1; L. 1978, ch. 58, § 1; July 1.
