The legislative authority of a municipal corporation may purchase
land within or without its boundaries and erect thereon suitable
hospital buildings for the isolation, care, or treatment of persons
suffering from dangerous contagious disease, and provide for the
maintenance thereof. The plans and specifications for such buildings
shall be approved by the board of health of the city or general health
district in which such hospital is to be located.
The legislative authority may issue bonds and apply the proceeds
thereof to such construction if, at an election held for that purpose,
two-thirds of the votes cast are in favor thereof. Such bonds may not
exceed twenty-five thousand dollars, with a rate or rates of interest
not to exceed the rate provided in section 9.95 of the Revised Code, and

buildings, the legislative authority each year may make such
appropriations for their care, use, and maintenance as are necessary.
