449.09 BANDS, ORCHESTRAS OR CHORUSES, TAX LEVY.
Cities of the second, third, or fourth class, statutory cities, or towns, however organized,
may, when authorized as provided in section 449.10, levy each year a tax on all taxable property
in the city or town for the purpose of providing a fund for the maintenance, transportation, or
employment of a band, orchestra, or chorus for municipal purposes. All sums shall be separately
levied and when collected these sums shall be paid into a special fund and used for these purposes.
When taxes are levied and collected for the maintenance or employment of a band, orchestra, or
chorus for municipal purposes and the band, orchestra, or chorus is discontinued or the city or
town by a vote of the people as now provided by law decide not to employ a band, orchestra, or
chorus, the governing body may transfer the sums so levied and collected to the general fund.
