45. Any provision in any special Act to the contrary notwithstanding, any local municipality which has contracted a loan by an issue of bonds, without the by-law authorizing such loan making provision for the collection of a sinking fund, may, by by-law, impose a special tax for the purpose of creating a sinking fund to repay such loan at maturity.
No by-law passed under this section shall be submitted to the approval of the qualified voters, but must be approved by the Government.
The sinking fund collected under any by-law passed under the authority of this section, must be deposited in the office of the Minister of Finance in conformity with the provisions of sections 34 to 42.
