Such resolution shall be published once each week for three consecutive weeks in the official county newspaper. If within 30 days following the date of the last publication of such resolution a petition signed by not less than 5% of the qualified electors of the district is filed in the office of the county election officer requesting an election on the proposition to issue such bonds, no bonds shall be issued without such proposition having been approved by a majority of the electors of the district voting at an election called and held thereon.

If no sufficient petition is filed within the time prescribed or if such proposition is approved by a majority of the qualified electors of the district voting at an election held thereon, bonds of the district may be issued in an amount not to exceed the amount specified in the original resolution of the board.
