The fiscal court of any county may by resolution at a regular session declare that
the county shall be a district for the creation, establishment and maintenance of
a county health department. Upon the resolution being passed, the fiscal court shall at once, out of the funds
of the county, appropriate a sufficient amount for the creation, establishment and
maintenance of the county health department. If there are not sufficient funds on hand for such appropriation at the time the
resolution is adopted, the fiscal court shall, at the next succeeding county levy,
make a levy sufficient to produce the necessary amount of tax for the creation, establishment
and maintenance of the county health department. The fiscal court shall annually thereafter make a levy sufficient to pay the annual
expense of maintenance of the county health department. After the resolution creating the department is entered, any twenty (20) legal voters
may, within thirty (30) days, file with the county judge/executive a petition signed
by them requesting that the establishment of the county health department be done
by the vote of the people of the county as provided in KRS 212.080, in which case it shall be so done.
