    Sec. 11-29-14. Whenever the board of directors recommends, in writing, to the corporate authorities, the discontinuance of a program for the care and treatment of persons afflicted with tuberculosis, the corporate authorities may pass an ordinance for the discontinuance of that program. If such an ordinance is passed, the question whether the program for the care and treatment of persons afflicted with tuberculosis who reside in the city or village shall be discontinued shall be certified by the clerk and submitted to the electors of the city or village by the proper election authority at an election in accordance with the general election law. The ordinance shall become effective if the discontinuance is approved by a majority of the electors voting upon the question.
    Alternatively, the corporate authorities may discontinue the program by adopting a resolution to discontinue the program, if:
    (a) the municipality is located in a county of less than 500,000 population;
    (b) there also exists in the county a tuberculosis sanitarium district established under "An Act to provide for the creation and management of tuberculosis sanitarium districts", approved May 21, 1937, as amended;
    (c) there exists a county or multiple-county health department serving the entire county and the board of health of that department has affirmed its willingness to assume responsibility for tuberculosis care and treatment programs by adopting a resolution by a majority vote and transmitting a copy thereof to the corporate authorities and the sanitarium board; and
    (d) the resolution adopted by the corporate authorities provides that:
    (1) all assets and liabilities of the sanitarium board be transferred to the county board of health; and
    (2) the board of health assume responsibility for the outpatient care and treatment of individuals diagnosed as having tuberculosis and for follow-up and prophylactic treatment of persons who have had contact with a diagnosed case of tuberculosis consistent with the rules and regulations of the Illinois Department of Public Health, but not be responsible for inpatient treatment.
