19-27a16.Alteration of district's boundaries; district served by city-owned sewage system; hearing. (a) Subject to the provisions of K.S.A. 19-270, the governing body of any sewer district, by resolution, may: (1) Alter the boundaries of the district to include or exclude parts of platted lots not wholly within the districts to coincide with the lot line or when good engineering practice requires, alter the boundaries of the district to include or exclude areas which should have been included or excluded initially by reason of the topography or include or exclude areas from which sewage could flow either direction; (2) assess the alterations; (3) relieve the parts of platted lots or other area excluded from previous assessments made by any other sewer district on those parts excluded; and (4) provide for the payment of the same out of the funds of the main sewer district in which those parts were formerly located.

(b) Upon presentation of a petition signed by 100% of the owners of land located within a main sewer district, which is being furnished sewer service by a city-owned sewage system, seeking to remove the land from such district, the governing body of any main sewer district which is located in a county which has been declared to be an urban area under the provisions of K.S.A. 19-3524, and amendments thereto, may alter the boundaries of such sewer district to conform to lot lines within platted subdivisions if the land was platted subsequent to the creation of the sewer district. Nothing in this subsection shall be construed to authorize the alteration of boundaries of any sewer district to include any territory not within the district originally created.

(c) Prior to exercising any authority granted by this section, the governing body of the sewer district shall call and hold a public hearing on the proposal. Notice of the hearing shall be given in the manner provided by K.S.A. 19-27a05, and amendments thereto.
