Upon the affirmative vote of five (5) members, the Council, at anytime and in any year, may declare by resolution that the amount of money that may be raised by taxation under Section 9.01 of this Charter, together with all other funds available during the ensuing year, will be insufficient to provide an adequate amount for the necessary requirements of the City, and it is necessary to levy taxes in excess of said limitation either to meet the current expenses of the City or for any specific purpose as allowable by Ohio law. Such resolution shall specify the additional rate of levy required and the duration during which such increased rate may be levied. This resolution shall be certified to the Board of Elections to be placed upon the ballot at any special, primary or general election. Such certification to the Board shall occur not less than seventy-five (75) days before the election upon which the issue will be voted. Such resolution shall take effect upon its adoption and shall be certified by the Clerk of Council forthwith to the election authorities who shall place said question upon the ballot.
The question shall be submitted as a separate proposition but may be printed on the same ballot with any other proposition submitted at the same election. If a majority of those voting thereon vote for the approval of such levy, Council shall immediately make such levy, or such part thereof as it finds necessary, pursuant to such approval, and certify the same to the County Auditor to be placed on the tax list and collected as other taxes.
