WHEREAS, Section 346.27(22) of the Code of Iowa provides that when the County enters into a lease with the Authority, the governing body of the County shall provide by ordinance or resolution for the levy and collection of a direct annual tax sufficient to pay the annual rent payable under the lease as and when is becomes due and payable.  The tax shall be levied and collected in like manner with the other taxes of the County and shall be in addition to all other taxes authorized to be levied by the County.  This tax shall not be included within and shall be in addition to any statutory limitation of rate or amount for the County.  The taxes realized from the tax levy shall be deposited into an account in the debt service fund of the County for the payment of the annual rent and shall not be disbursed for any other purpose; and
