      (b)   The governing body of any municipality, which has aggregate annual gross receipts of less than $275,000 and which does not operate a utility, shall not be required to maintain fixed asset records.

      (c) (1)   The director of accounts and reports shall waive the requirements of subsection (a) upon request therefor by the governing body of any municipality. The waiver shall be granted to the extent requested by the governing body. Prior to requesting the waiver provided for in this subsection, the governing body, by resolution, annually shall make a finding that financial statements and financial reports prepared in conformity with the requirements of subsection (a) are not relevant to the requirements of the cash-basis and budget laws of this state and are of no significant value to the governing body or members of the general public of the municipality. No governing body of a municipality shall request the waiver or adopt the resolution authorized under this subsection if the provisions of revenue bond ordinances or resolutions or other ordinances or resolutions of the municipality require financial statements and financial reports to be prepared in conformity with the requirements of subsection (a). The governing body of any municipality which is granted a waiver under this subsection shall cause financial statements and financial reports of the municipality to be prepared on the basis of cash receipts and disbursements as adjusted to show compliance with the cash-basis and budget laws of this state.

      (2)   The provisions of this subsection do not apply to community colleges.

      (d)   The director of accounts and reports shall waive the requirements of law relating to the preparation and maintenance of fixed asset records upon request therefor by the board of trustees of any community college. The waiver shall be granted to the extent and for the period of time requested by the board of trustees. Nothing contained in this subsection shall be construed so as to exempt any community college from compliance with the provisions of K.S.A. 71-211, and amendments thereto, which requires the use by all community colleges of a standardized and uniform chart of accounts.
