GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF IOWA
Section 1. Section 347.7, unnumbered paragraph 1, Code 2001, is amended to read as follows:
If a county hospital is established, the board of supervisors, at the time of levying
ordinary taxes, shall levy a tax at the rate voted not to exceed fifty-four cents per thousand dollars
of assessed value in any one year for the erection and equipment of the hospital, and also a
tax not to exceed twenty-seven cents per thousand dollars of value for the improvement,
maintenance, and replacements of the hospital, as certified by the board of hospital trustees.
However, in counties having a population of two hundred twenty-five thousand or over, the
levy for taxes payable in the fiscal year beginning July 1,
2001, and for subsequent
fiscal years, for improvements and maintenance of the hospital shall not exceed
two dollars and
five cents per thousand dollars of assessed value in any one year.
The proceeds of the taxes constitute the county public hospital fund and the fund is
subject to review by the board of supervisors in counties
having a population
of two hundred twenty-five thousand or
over. However, the board of trustees of a county hospital,
where funds are available in the county public hospital fund of the county which are
unappropriated, may use the unappropriated funds for erecting and equipping hospital buildings
and additions thereto
to the hospital
buildings without authority from the voters of the county.
