(65 ILCS 5/11-99-3) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-99-3)
    Sec. 11-99-3. No city is authorized to levy or collect the tax provided for by Section 11-99-1 until the question of that levy has been certified by the clerk and submitted to the electors of the city at an election in accordance with the general election law and authorized by a majority of the votes cast on the question.
    However, in any city whose electors have authorized the levy of a tax under "An Act to provide for the assessment and collection of a general tax by cities for parks and boulevard purposes," approved June 17, 1893, as amended, that tax may be continued to be levied under Sections 11-99-1 through 11-99-3 without submitting the question of its levy to the electors for approval.
