A university branch district may submit to the electors of the district the question of issuing bonds of such district for the purpose of paying all or a part of 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 the levy of a tax outside the limitation imposed by Section 2 of Article XII, Ohio Constitution, to pay the interest on and to retire such bonds. The proceedings for such election and for the issuance and sale of such bonds shall be as provided 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. If a majority of those voting upon the proposal vote in favor thereof, the board may proceed with the issuance of such bonds and the levy of a tax outside the ten-mill limitation, sufficient in amount to pay the interest on and retire such bonds at maturity. Notes may be issued in anticipation of such bonds as provided in section 133.22 of the Revised Code. The secretary of the district shall be its fiscal officer, and the board of trustees shall be the taxing authority of the district, as those terms are used in Chapter 133. of the Revised Code.
