10-108d.Nonlitigation certificate, exception; payment of bonds if city not legally organized. (a) Notwithstanding any controversy, litigation or other proceeding disputing the legal organization of any city incorporated pursuant to K.S.A. 15-115, et seq., and amendments thereto, the governing body of the city may issue general obligation bonds of the city pursuant to the authority of any appropriate statute without executing a nonlitigation certificate required by K.S.A. 10-108a, and amendments thereto. Any bonds authorized to be issued hereunder shall be a general obligation of the property located within the city as it existed on the date the bonds are delivered to the purchaser, and except as provided by this subsection shall be authorized, issued, registered and sold in the manner provided by the general bond law and shall bear interest at a rate not to exceed the maximum prescribed by K.S.A. 10-1009, and amendments thereto.

(b) If it is finally determined by a court of competent jurisdiction that the city was not legally organized, the property located within the city on the date any general obligation bonds were delivered to the purchaser shall remain liable for the payment of the interest on and the principal amount of the bonds issued by the city in accordance with their terms and shall continue to be subject to the levy of special assessments, if any, and be taxed, if necessary, for the payment of the bonds and the interest thereon. Any special assessments levied by the city shall continue to constitute a lien on the property assessed. The county clerk shall annually levy a tax or collect the necessary amount to pay any special assessment levied against the property as required by the statute under which the general obligation bonds were authorized.
