71-617. Adult basic education; tax levy authorized, limitations, protest; fund, sources; expenses. (a) The board of trustees of any community college may levy a tax in each year for a period of not to exceed five (5) years of not to exceed one-fourth (¼) mill on all taxable tangible property within the district to maintain and operate an adult basic education program at a level approved by the state board. In no event shall the tax levy authorized hereunder be at a rate which will produce an amount in excess of fifty thousand dollars ($50,000). Such tax levy shall be in addition to all other tax levies authorized or limited by law. Proceeds from such tax levy shall be deposited in the adult education fund of the community college which fund is hereby established. All moneys received by a community college for adult basic education shall be deposited in the adult education fund. The expenses of a community college attributable to adult basic education shall be paid from the adult education fund.

(b) No tax levy shall be made under authority of this section until a resolution authorizing such a levy is passed by the board of trustees and published once a week for three (3) consecutive weeks in a newspaper having general circulation in the community college district, and such resolution shall specify the millage rate of such tax levy and the period of time for which such tax levy shall be made under authority thereof. After the adoption of such resolution such levy may be made unless, within ninety (90) days following the last publication of the resolution, a petition in opposition to such levy, signed by not less than five percent (5%) of the qualified electors of such community college district, is filed with the county election officer of the county in which the main campus of the community college is located. In the event such a petition is filed, such levy shall not be made without the question of levying the same having been submitted to and been approved by a majority of the qualified electors of the district voting at an election which shall be called for that purpose or at the next general election.
