An Act concerning fire protection; relating to the powers and duties of certain

municipalities; amending K.S.A. 19-3612a and repealing the existing section.


Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Kansas:

Section 1. K.S.A. 19-3612a is hereby amended to read as follows: 19-

3612a. (a) Whenever a fire district has been established under the pro-

visions of K.S.A. 19-3601 to 19-3606, both sections inclusive, and the

county commissioners determine through 19-3606, and amendments

thereto, and the board of county commissioners determines, by resolution,

that it is in the best interests of the county to place the supervision of

such fire district under a fire district board of trustees, the said board of

county commissioners may appoint a board of trustees of not less than

three (3) members and not more than nine (9) members, composed of

persons other than the board of county commissioners, who shall serve

at the pleasure of the commission. The board so established may be vested

with all of the powers theretofore vested in the board of county commis-

sioners, or such supervisory powers as the board of commissioners may,

by resolution, may delegate, and the board so appointed of trustees may

exercise all powers so delegated.

(b) Pursuant to an interlocal agreement entered into by the board of

county commissioners and the governing bodies of cities and townships

located within the fire district, the board of county commissioners may

delegate its authority to appoint the members of the fire district board of

trustees to a joint board appointed by the governing bodies of cities and

townships located within the fire district. The fire district board of trustees

appointed by such joint board shall be vested with all of those powers

vested in the board of county commissioners under K.S.A. 19-3601

through 19-3606, and amendments thereto.

Any interlocal agreement entered into pursuant to this subsection shall

be subject to the provisions of K.S.A. 12-2901 et seq., and amendments

thereto.

Sec. 2. K.S.A. 19-3612a is hereby repealed.
