A joint vocational school district board of education by a vote of at least two-thirds of its full membership may, at any time, submit to the electors of the joint vocational school district the question of issuing bonds of such district for the purpose of paying the cost of purchasing a site or enlargement thereof, and for the erection and equipment of buildings, or for the purpose of enlarging, improving, or rebuilding thereof, and also the necessity of a levy of a tax outside the limitation imposed by Section 2 of Article XII, Ohio Constitution, to pay the interest on and retire such bonds. The proceedings for such election and for the issuance and sale of such bonds shall be the same as required of a board of education by Chapter 133. of the Revised Code, provided that such bond issue may be submitted to the electors and such bonds may be issued for any one or more improvements which the district is authorized to acquire or construct, notwithstanding the fact that such improvements may not be for one purpose under Chapter 133. of the Revised Code. Notes may be issued in anticipation of such bonds as provided in section 133.22 of the Revised Code. The joint vocational school district board of education shall be the taxing authority of the district as this term is used in Chapter 133. of the Revised Code. The annual levy necessary to pay the debt charges on such bonds shall be extended by the auditor of each county in which territory of the joint vocational school district is located on the tax lists of the school districts in his county participating in the joint vocational school district for each year for which the levy is made and shall be placed for collection on the tax duplicates of such districts in his county to be collected at the same time and in the same manner as other taxes on such duplicates. Such taxes authorized by this section when collected shall be paid to the treasurer of the joint vocational school district and deposited by him to the credit of the bond retirement fund.
