of the district in providing ambulance services in such district shall be paid from
the proceeds of the tax levies of the district hereinafter authorized. The provisions of this act shall govern the operation of ambulances providing services
within districts established under the provisions of this section. The governing body of each ambulance service taxing district is hereby authorized
to levy an annual tax upon all taxable tangible property in such district in accordance
with the provisions of K.S.A. 65-6113. The county treasurer shall receive and have custody of all of the funds of the district
and shall expend the same upon the order of the governing body of the district as
