3349.25 Municipal university taxing district.

For the purpose of levying any tax which may be found necessary to meet fiscal obligations under any agreement authorized by section 3349.23 or section 3349.241 of the Revised Code, that portion of said county lying outside of the corporate limits of such municipality in which the university is situated, when the county enters into such an agreement, or any township, municipal corporation, or school district which enters into such an agreement, shall be a taxing district to be known as a municipal university taxing district. The areas composing such a district need not be contiguous. After the establishment of such a taxing district, when the county or any township, municipal corporation, or school district not already constituting a municipal university taxing district enters into such an agreement, for the purpose of levying any tax which may be found necessary to meet the fiscal obligations under any agreement authorized by section 3349.23 or section 3349.241 of the Revised Code, that portion of the county lying outside the limits of an already established municipal university taxing district, or those townships, municipal corporations, or school districts which enter into such agreements, shall be a taxing district to be known as an additional municipal university taxing district. The board of county commissioners of a county, the board of trustees of a township, the legislative authority of a municipal corporation, or the board of education of a school district entering into an agreement pursuant to section 3349.23 or 3349.241 of the Revised Code, shall be the taxing authority and shall submit to the electors of said taxing district, in the manner provided by sections 5705.01 to 5705.26 , inclusive, of the Revised Code, the question of authorizing the taxing authority to levy a tax for such purpose, within the constitutional ten mill limitation. In the event such issue is approved by the percentage of vote required in section 5705.26 of the Revised Code the taxing authority of the district shall levy such tax upon all lands within such district, and it shall order from time to time the transfer to the board of directors of the municipal university, by warrant of the auditor, such sums of tax moneys collected as are necessary to meet its obligations under such contract. The taxing authority for the purposes of the agreement authorized by section 3349.23 or section 3349.241 of the Revised Code may also submit to the electors of such taxing district in the manner provided for by sections 5705.01 to 5705.26 , inclusive, of the Revised Code, a proposal to levy a tax outside the ten mill limitation at a specified rate and for a specified period not to exceed five years, but to terminate upon termination of the agreement authorized by section 3349.23 or section 3349.241 of the Revised Code under which the taxing district was established.
