C. If it is deemed necessary or advisable by the board of trustees to expend for that purpose a larger amount annually for not exceeding five years than can be raised by the taxes provided by this section, it shall call a special election of qualified electors of the district to determine whether a greater tax levy shall be made annually for that period.
