32221.
  

The board of directors may establish a fund for capital outlays; provided, that no part of said fund shall be used for acquisition of additional patient bed capacity by lease or purchase of any hospital buildings or facilities or for new construction of additional patient bed capacity for an existing hospital without the approval of the appropriate voluntary area health planning agency established pursuant to Section 127155. If the fund is established, it shall include in the estimate required to be furnished to the board of supervisors a statement of the amount to be included in the annual assessment for this purpose. The amount to be raised shall be included in the tax limitation prescribed by Section 32203.

Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the board of supervisors may levy a tax in excess of the maximum tax levy specified in Section 32203 to be used for capital outlay if a majority of the district electors voting at an election held for that purpose approve the imposition of the tax.

(Amended by Stats. 1996, Ch. 1023, Sec. 298. Effective September 29, 1996.)

Whenever a capital outlay fund is established, it shall be used only for such purposes, except the board of directors may, by a four-fifths vote of all members, if it finds that the fund is no longer necessary or that there remain in the fund moneys which are no longer required for such purpose, discontinue the fund or transfer so much thereof as is no longer required for capital outlay purposes to the repayment of any bonds outstanding, or if there are no bonds outstanding, to any fund used for the payment of current expenses of the district.
