2-131f.Ellis county; acquisition of land for fairground expansion; petition; election. The board of county commissioners of Ellis county, upon request of the officially recognized county fair association in Ellis county, and upon making a determination that it is in the best interest of the county to expand its fairground by the acquisition of additional land which is adjacent to the fairground, may adopt a resolution to acquire such land. The resolution shall be published once each week for three consecutive weeks in a newspaper of general circulation in the county. After publication, the board of county commissioners may acquire such land for expansion of the fairground unless a petition requesting an election upon the proposition signed by electors equal in number to not less than 5% of the electors who voted at the last preceding regular county election, as shown by the poll books, is filed with the county election officer within 60 days following the date of the last publication of the resolution. In the event a valid petition is filed, no such land shall be acquired without such proposition having been submitted to and having been approved by a majority of the electors voting at an election called and held thereon. The election shall be called and held in the manner prescribed for the calling and holding of elections upon the question of the issuance of bonds under the general bond law.
