Such resolution shall be confined to a single purpose and shall specify the amount of increase in rate which it is necessary to levy, not to exceed three-tenths of a mill, the purpose thereof, the number of years during which such increase shall be in effect, not to exceed five years, which increase may or may not include a levy upon the duplicate of the current year.
Such resolution shall go into effect upon its passage and no publication of it is necessary other than that provided for in the notice of election.
