14-698.Same; bonds for sites, buildings, equipment and improvements; election; costs. Whenever in the judgment of the board of trustees it is necessary to erect and equip a hospital building, or to erect and equip an addition to an existing hospital building, or to make extensive alterations and improvements of existing hospital buildings, or to erect and equip a building for a nurses' training school, or to erect and equip a dormitory for nurses and nurses in training, and acquiring sites in any case where necessary and the landscaping thereof, or for several or all of such purposes, and current funds are insufficient, it shall prepare an explanatory statement and an estimate or estimates of the cost or costs and submit the same to the governing body of the city and request that the matter of issuing bonds of the city be submitted to an election of the electors of the hospital territory.

The governing body of the city shall thereupon provide for a bond election as provided by K.S.A. 10-120. If bonds are to be voted for more than one purpose as herein specified one proposition describing the different purposes and stating one amount may be submitted, or separate propositions for different purposes with the proper amount may be submitted. The cost of the bond election shall be borne out of the proceeds of the sale of the bonds if the election carries and the bonds are issued; otherwise it shall be paid by the board of hospital trustees, upon claim being filed by the city. If a majority of the votes cast on a proposition are in favor of the proposition the bonds may be issued. The bonds shall be issued as are other city bonds and shall be general obligation bonds of such city, but such bonds shall not be subject to any bond limitation nor limit the issuance of other bonds of such city or other taxing unit in which any hospital territory is situated.

The governing body of the city shall annually make such levy for bond principal and interest as is necessary to retire the bonds as they mature and the interest as it accrues, such tax levy or levies to extend over the entire hospital territory, and shall be certified and extended and the money collected and turned to the city treasurer the same as the current levy for hospital purposes, but the bond and interest money shall be kept by the city treasurer in a separate fund designated "hospital bond and interest fund" and shall only be used to pay the hospital bonds and interest.
