When one hundred legal voters of any county shall present a petition, to the county board of such county, asking that an annual tax may be levied for the establishment and maintenance of a county tuberculosis sanitarium in such county, such county board shall instruct the county clerk to, and the county clerk shall, in the next legal notice of a regular general election in such county, give notice that at such election every elector may vote “For the levy of a tax for a county tuberculosis sanitarium,” or “Against the levy of a tax for a county tuberculosis sanitarium,” and provision shall be made for voting on such proposition, in accordance with such notice, and if a majority of all the votes cast upon the proposition shall be for the levy of a tax for a county tuberculosis sanitarium, the county board of such county shall hereafter annually levy a tax of not to exceed three mills on the dollar, which tax shall be collected in like manner with other general taxes in such county and shall be known as the “Tuberculosis Sanitarium Fund,” and thereafter the county board of such county shall, in the annual appropriation bill, appropriate from such fund such sum or sums of money as may be deemed necessary to defray all necessary expenses and liabilities of such county tuberculosis sanitarium. § 3. When in any county such a proposition for the levy of a tax for a county tuberculosis sanitarium has been adopted as aforesaid, the chairman or president, as the case may be, of the county board of such county, shall, with the approval of the county board, proceed to appoint a board of three directors, one at least of whom shall be a licensed physician, and all of whom shall be chosen with reference to their special fitness for such office. § 4.

Vacancies in the board of directors, occasioned by removal, resignation, or otherwise, shall be reported to the county board, and be filled in like manner as original appointments; and no director shall receive compensation as such, or be interested, either directly or indirectly, in the purchase or sale of any supplies for said sanitarium. § 6. Said directors shall, immediately after appointment, meet and organize, by the election of one of their number as president and one as secretary, and by the election of such other officers as they may deem necessary. They shall make and adopt such by-laws, rules, and regulations, for their own guidance and for the government of the sanitarium and the branches, dispensaries, and auxiliary institutions and activities connected therewith, as may be expedient, not inconsistent with this Act.
