13-10,133.Same; bonds; protest petition; election provisions. The governing body of any city which has created a storm drainage district under the provisions of this act may issue general obligation bonds of the city or bonds payable by a tax levy against property located within such district to pay the cost of constructing storm sewers and drains within such districts. Such bonds may either be paid by the watershed district or by the city at large or by a combination thereof. Before any bonds are issued, the governing body of the city shall cause to be published once each week for two consecutive weeks in the official city newspaper a notice of its intention to cause the improvement to be made and to issue bonds of the city to pay the costs thereof. The notice shall describe the improvement proposed to be made and the amount of bonds proposed to be issued. Such bonds may be issued and the improvement made unless a petition requesting an election upon the issuance of such bonds is filed in accordance with this section. Such petition shall be signed by electors equal in number to not less than 10% of the electors who voted at the last preceding regular city election as shown by the poll books and shall be filed in the office of the city clerk within 20 days following the last publication of such resolution. If a sufficient petition is filed within the time provided, no such bonds shall be issued until the governing body of the city shall have submitted the question to and received the approval of a majority of the electors voting on the proposition at an election called and held for such purpose.

Any election called and held and any bonds issued under the provisions of this section shall be in the manner provided by the general bond law.
