    (c) After adopting the appropriation ordinance, and on or before the second Tuesday in September of each year, the board of directors shall ascertain the total amount of appropriations legally made that are to be provided from the tax levy for that year. Then, by an ordinance specifying the purposes for which the appropriations are made, the board of directors shall levy not more than the total amount ascertained upon all the property subject to taxation within the township as the property is assessed and equalized for State and county purposes. The Illinois Municipal Budget Law does not apply to the making of appropriations by the board of directors.
