hundred and less than twelve thousand which has a total assessed valuation of at least sixty-three
million dollars, if the county submits the issue to the voters of such county prior to January 1,
2003, or a fourth class city located in a county of the first classification, may impose a tax on
the charges for all sleeping rooms paid by the transient guests of hotels, motels, bed and breakfast
inns and campgrounds and any docking facility which rents slips to recreational boats which are
used by transients for sleeping, which shall be at least two percent, but not more than five percent
per occupied room per night, except that such tax shall not become effective unless the governing
body of the city or county submits to the voters of the city or county at a state general, primary or
special election, a proposal to authorize the governing body of the city or county to impose a tax
[under] pursuant to the provisions of this section and section 67.1362. The tax authorized by
this section and section 67.1362 shall be in addition to any charge paid to the owner or operator
and shall be in addition to any and all taxes imposed by law and the proceeds of such tax shall be
used by the city or county solely for funding the promotion of tourism. Such tax shall be stated
