The board of township trustees of a township described in section 505.13 of the Revised Code, which, for any reason, is inaccessible from the mainland at some time of the year, may construct, acquire, purchase, lease, and maintain a house as the residence of a resident physician, when, in the opinion of a majority of the members of such board, it is necessary for the maintenance of the public health and welfare.
For the maintenance, construction, acquisition, purchase, or lease of such a house the board may levy a tax upon all the taxable property in the township, in such amount as it determines.
The question of levying such a tax shall be submitted to the qualified electors of the township at a general or special election. The trustees shall certify such resolution to the board of elections not later than four p.m. of the ninetieth day before the day of the election. Twenty days' notice thereof shall be previously given by posting in at least three public places in the township. Such notice shall state specifically the amount to be raised and the purpose thereof. If a majority of all votes cast at such election upon the proposition is in favor thereof, the tax provided for is authorized.
Upon the authorization of such tax levy the board may issue notes in anticipation of such revenues, to mature in not more than two years from the date of issue, and to bear interest at not more than four per cent per annum.
