The governing body of any city of this state, however organized, may, after the approval of
a majority of the voters of such city, voting on the question at a special election called for the
purpose, or at a general election or an annual election, in the notice whereof the proposal to do
so has been submitted for approval or rejection, adopt an ordinance providing for the erection,
equipment, and maintenance of a building or monument or parks in recognition of the services
performed by soldiers, sailors, marines, and war veterans of the United States. The ordinance
may also provide for the supervision and control of such building or monument or parks after its
erection. The estimated cost, as determined by the governing body, of such monument or parks
or building, shall be stated in such notice and in the proposal to be voted upon; provided, that
no sum shall be expended for any such purpose more than ten percent in excess of the amount
so stated in such notice. The governing body of such city, after such approval, is authorized to
acquire a site within such city upon which such monument or parks or building may be erected;
provided, that before such election the site shall be designated and the cost thereof specified in
such election notice.
