12-1741b. Issuance of revenue bonds by counties; lease-purchase agreements; location of facilities; letter of intent, resolution of intent or inducement resolution, approval required, when. (a) Subject to the provisions of K.S.A. 12-1744a and 12-1744b, and amendments thereto, any county shall have power to issue revenue bonds, the proceeds of which shall be used for the purpose of paying all or part of the cost of purchasing, acquiring, constructing, reconstructing, improving, equipping, furnishing, repairing, enlarging or remodeling of facilities for agricultural, commercial, hospital, industrial, natural resources, recreational development and manufacturing purposes. Any county shall also have the power to enter into leases or lease-purchase agreements by resolution with any person, firm or corporation for the facilities. Except as otherwise provided in subsection (b) of this section, the facilities may be constructed within the county or its environs without limitation as to distance, providing the board of county commissioners declares that the facility, if in being, would promote the welfare of the county.
(b) No county shall issue revenue bonds authorized herein to finance facilities located within the corporate limits of a city or within three miles of the corporate limits of a city or within another county without the issuing county having first received approval of the issuance of a letter of intent or the adoption of a resolution of intent or inducement resolution to issue such bonds from the governing body of the city or county in which the facility is to be located. Approval of a city governing body shall not be required to finance the construction of facilities located on real estate, the title to which is in the county issuing the revenue bonds. The use of such real estate shall be subject to all zoning regulations, subdivision regulations and building code regulations of the city.
(c) The issuance of a letter of intent or the adoption of a resolution of intent or inducement resolution shall be deemed to have received the approval of a city or county for purposes of this section unless such city or county provides the county proposing such issuance with a written notification specifically disapproving the issuance within seven business days after the next regular meeting of the governing body of the city or county having such approval authority that follows receipt of a request for approval.
(d) The provisions of this section requiring approval of a letter of intent, resolution of intent or inducement resolution as a condition to issuance of revenue bonds shall not be applicable with respect to the issuance of any revenue bonds for which a county has issued a letter of intent, resolution of intent or inducement resolution prior to the effective date of this act.
