Subdivision 1. Permissive.

and may levy taxes on the property in the unorganized territory for that purpose.
Subd. 2. No election needed.
, a county board
acts for its unorganized territory. The county board does not need to get authority from the

taxes for that protection in unorganized territory is as valid as a similar act of a town board acting
on authority granted by its electors.
