If a majority of the votes cast on the proposal by the qualified voters voting thereon are in favor of the proposal, then the ordinance or order and any amendments thereto shall become effective on the first day of the second calendar quarter after the director of revenue receives notice of adoption of the tax.  If a majority of the votes cast by the qualified voters voting are opposed to the proposal, then the governing body of the county shall have no power to impose the sales tax herein authorized unless and until the governing body of the county shall again have submitted another proposal to authorize the governing body of the county to impose the sales tax authorized by sections 67.392 to 67.395 and such proposal is approved by a majority of the qualified voters voting thereon.

  3.  All revenue received by a county from the tax authorized under the provisions of sections 67.392 to 67.395 shall be deposited in a special trust fund and shall be used by the office of the prosecuting attorney solely for the investigation and prosecution of drug-related offenses for so long as the tax shall remain in effect.  The prosecuting attorney may contract to distribute a portion of the special trust fund moneys to any not-for-profit community crime prevention organization for the purpose of preventing drug-related offenses, if such organization has been in existence for the purpose of community crime prevention for a period of not less than five years.  Once the tax authorized by sections 67.392 to 67.395 is abolished or is terminated by any means, all funds remaining in the special trust fund shall be used solely for activities initiated with revenues raised by the tax authorized by sections 67.392 to 67.395.  Any funds in such special trust fund which are not needed for current expenditures may be invested by the governing body in accordance with applicable laws relating to the investment of other county funds.
