2016 Statute


17-2351.Issuance of revenue bonds; types; exempt from taxation. A municipality shall have power to issue bonds from time to time in its discretion, for any of the purposes of this act. A municipality shall also have power to issue refunding bonds for the purpose of paying or retiring bonds previously issued by it in the manner prescribed by and subject to the provisions of K.S.A. 10-116a. A municipality may issue such types of bonds as it may determine, including (without limiting the generality of the foregoing) bonds on which the principal and interest are payable (a) exclusively from the income and revenues of the project financed with the proceeds of such bonds, or (b) exclusively from the income and revenues of certain designated housing projects whether or not they are financed in whole or in part with the proceeds of such bonds. Any such bonds may be additionally secured by a pledge of any loan, grant or contribution or parts thereof from the federal government or other source, or a pledge of any income or revenues connected with a housing project or a mortgage of any housing project or projects.

Neither the governing body of a municipality nor any person executing the bonds shall be liable personally on the bonds by reason of the issuance thereof hereunder. The bonds and other obligations issued under the provisions of this act (and such bonds and obligations shall so state on their face) shall be payable solely from the sources provided in this section and shall not constitute an indebtedness within the meaning of any constitutional or statutory debt limitation or restriction and shall not under any circumstances become general obligations of the municipality. Bonds issued pursuant to this act are declared to be issued for an essential public and governmental purpose and to be public instrumentalities and, together with interest thereon and income therefrom, shall be exempt from taxes. The tax exemption provisions of this act shall be considered part of the security for the repayment of bonds and shall constitute, by virtue of this act and without the necessity of the same being restated in said bonds, a contract between the bondholders and each and every one thereof, including all transferees of said bonds from time to time on the one hand and the respective municipalities issuing said bonds and the state on the other.
