They shall be executed as are other bonds of the township and shall express on their face the purpose for which they are issued, shall bear interest at a rate not to exceed six per cent. per annum, payable semi-annually, and shall be sold for not less than par and accrued interest.

CEMETERIES.

Sec. 3441. Trustees May Acquire Lands for Cemeteries. Township trustees may accept a conveyance of, or purchase, and inclose, improve, and protect such lands in one or more places within the township as they deem necessary and proper for cemetery purposes. If suitable lands cannot be procured by contract on reasonable terms, they may appropriate lands therefor, not to exceed ten acres, by proceedings in accordance with the provisions of law regulating the appropriation of private property by municipal corporations.

History:-66 v. 37; 75 v. 525; 88 v. 584.

Sec. 3444. Levy and Taxes for Expenses. To defray the expenses of such purchase or appropriation, inclosing and improving of such lands, the trustees may levy for one or more years a tax sufficient for that purpose, not to exceed two thousand dollars in any one year, and each year thereafter such sum as may be necessary for the needful care, supervision, repair, and improvement of such cemeteries.

History:-51 v. 489; 66 v. 37; 97 v. 188; 98 v. 251.

Sec. 3445. Vote May Be Taken. Before such purchase or appropriation is made or conveyance accepted the question of establishment of such cemetery, on the order of the trustees, or the written application of any six electors of the township, shall be submitted to a vote of the electors of the township at a regular annual election. Such order or application shall specify as near as may be the proposed location of such cemetery, and the estimated cost thereof, including inclosing and improving it.

History:-51 v. 489; 66 v. 37; 97 v. 188; 98 v. 251.

In an election at which there is to be submitted to the electors of a township the proposition of establishing a township cemetery and levying a tax therefor, under sections 3445, G. C., et seq., the proposition would be placed on the ballot for township officers in the following form:

CEMETERY

YES

CEMETERY

NO

Op. Atty. Gen. (1915), p. 1731.

An election upon the question of a vote in favor of the tax herein provided, are conditions precedent to the authority of the trustees to proceed to purchase a cemetery, and to issue township orders in payment therefor: Trustees v. Cherry, 8 O. S. 564.

Art. II, § 26, of the Ohio constitution does not invalidate the statutory provision requiring such preliminary vote: Trustees v. Cherry, 8 0. S. 564.

The provision requiring a popular vote, found in this section, does not apply to the procedure for requiring additional ground for an existing cemetery under G. C. § 3455: Norton v. Trustees, 8 0. C. C. 335, 4 0. C. D. 422 [affirmed, without report, Paine v. Norton, 54 O. S. 682].

Sec. 3446.--Notice of Election; Ballots. On the making of such order or the filing of such application, and at least twenty days before the election, the clerk shall post written notices in at least three public places in the township, that the vote will be taken. The electors who favor the proposition shall place on their ballots for township offices the word "cemetery.” If a majority of the votes given at such election on such proposition is in favor thereof, the trustees shall procure the lands for that purpose and levy taxes as hereinbefore provided.

History:-51 v. 489; 66 v. 37; 97 v. 188; 98 v. 251.

The fact that a vote is taken under this section, and that a majority of the votes are in favor thereof, does not prevent a property owner from bringing suit to enjoin the location of a cemetery within two hundred yards of his residence, without showing any special damage by reason of such location: Henry v. Trustees, 48 0. S. 671.

FOOT BRIDGES.

Sec. 7562-1. Trustees Empowered to Construct as Means of Ac= cess to Schools. That the trustees of any township are authorized and empowered to construct, rebuild and repair foot-bridges across the rivers and streams in their respective townships when they may deem it necessary so to do in order to provide convenient means of access to the public schools of their said township by the pupils residing in the school district, wherein a public schoolhouse is located; but in no case shall the cost of the aforesaid construction, rebuilding or repair of any said foot-bridge exceed the sum of one thousand dollars.

History -104 v. 198.

In the matter of building foot bridges, the statutes seem to give no power or authority to any board excepting to the township trustees. Op. Atty. Gen. (1917), 1813.

Sec. 7562-2. Submission of Question as to Tax Levy. Said township trustees are authorized to pay the cost of the construction, rebuilding or repair of such said bridges out of any funds, unappropriated for any other purpose and in the township treasury. Should there be no funds in the township treasury available for the aforesaid purposes, then the said trustees are authorized and empowered to levy a tax for the purpose of procuring the necessary funds for the construction, rebuilding or repair of said bridges, which said tax shall be levied upon all of the taxable property in said township, and shall be certified, levied and collected in the manner prescribed by law for the certification, levy and collection of other township taxes, and the money so raised shall be paid over to the township treasurer and by him paid out on the order of the township trustees certified by the township clerk; provided, however, that said tax shall not be levied until the same has been approved by a majority of the qualified voters of said township voting at any election at which said question shall be submitted.

History:-104 v. 198.

Sec. 7562-3. Election. Said election shall be called at a regular meeting of the township trustees and shall be held within thirty days from the date of the resolution of the township trustees calling the same. Twenty days' notice of said election shall be given by the posting of notices thereof, by the township clerk, in ten public places of said township, and provisions for the holding of said election shall be made by the deputy state supervisors of elections upon receiving notice, from the clerk of the township, of the date and purpose of said election.
