  2.  Such annual rate of tax levy of one dollar on the hundred dollars assessed valuation shall be limited, or may be increased, by such cities by city ordinance, as follows:

  (1)  If the annual rate of tax levy for debt service, including principal and interest payments on any bonded debt of such cities, equals or exceeds fifty cents on the hundred dollars assessed valuation, then such cities cannot by city ordinance levy and impose any tax for municipal operating purposes at an annual tax rate in excess of said one dollar on the hundred dollars assessed valuation; provided, however, that if the annual rate of tax levy for municipal operating purposes is less than one dollar on the hundred dollars assessed valuation, then such cities may by city ordinance levy and impose an annual tax for capital improvements, such as public works, public buildings and any other public improvements in such cities, at a rate which may equal, but shall not exceed, the difference between the annual rate of tax levy for municipal operating purposes and one dollar on the hundred dollars assessed valuation.

  (2)  If the annual rate of tax levy for debt service, including principal and interest payments on any bonded debt of such cities, is less than fifty cents on the hundred dollars assessed valuation and the annual rate of tax levy for municipal operating purposes is one dollar on the hundred dollars assessed valuation, then such cities may by city ordinance levy and impose additional taxes at an annual rate not to exceed such tax rate as shall represent the difference between the one dollar on the hundred dollars assessed valuation imposed for municipal operating purposes, plus the rate required for such debt service, and an annual tax rate not to exceed one dollar and fifty cents on the hundred dollars assessed valuation; provided, however, that any such additional tax levy shall be imposed solely for capital improvements or operating expenses for any one or all of the following purposes, namely, hospital, public health, recreation grounds and museum.
