The board of county commissioners of any county, in any year, after providing the normal and customary percentage of the total general fund appropriations for the support of the tuberculosis treatment specified under section 339.73 of the Revised Code or for the support of tuberculosis clinics established pursuant to section 339.76 of the Revised Code, by vote of two-thirds of all the members of said board may declare by resolution that the amount of taxes which may be raised within the ten-mill limitation will be insufficient to provide an adequate amount for that support, and that it is necessary to levy a tax in excess of the ten-mill limitation to supplement such general fund appropriations for such purpose, but the total levy for this purpose shall not exceed sixty-five one hundredths of a mill.

Such resolution shall conform to section 5705.19 of the Revised Code and be certified to the board of elections not less than ninety days before the general election and submitted in the manner provided in section 5705.25 of the Revised Code.

If the majority of electors voting on a levy to supplement general fund appropriations for the support of the tuberculosis treatment specified under section 339.73 of the Revised Code or for the support of tuberculosis clinics established pursuant to section 339.76 of the Revised Code, vote in favor thereof, the board of said county may levy a tax within such county at the additional rate in excess of the ten-mill limitation during the period and for the purpose stated in the resolution or at any less rate or for any of said years.

If a tax was levied under this section for the support of tuberculosis clinics before October 10, 2000, the levy may be renewed for that purpose on or after October 10, 2000, in accordance with section 5705.25 of the Revised Code.
