Except as provided in subsection (b), the tax to be levied shall not exceed in any event three mills upon the dollar of the assessed valuation of the property within such taxing district.

(b) The township board of any township located in a county with a population over one hundred twenty-five thousand and not more than one hundred sixty-five thousand in order to furnish fire protection or street lighting or both may levy a tax of not to exceed six mills upon the dollar of assessed valuation of the property within such taxing district. Whenever any said board proposes to levy a tax under this subsection, it shall adopt a resolution stating the amount of the proposed levy and giving notice thereof. Such notice shall be published once each week for two consecutive weeks in the official county newspaper. If, within sixty days next following the last publication of such notice, a petition protesting such tax levy signed by not less than five percent of the qualified electors of such taxing district, no such levy shall be made unless the proposition to levy such tax has been submitted to and approved by a majority of the qualified electors of the taxing district voting at an election called and held thereon. Such election shall be noticed, called and held in the manner prescribed for the noticing, calling and holding of elections under the general bond law.
