If the board of education shall determine, by resolution, that all or any part of the proceeds of school bonds, issued for a type II school district not having a board of school estimate, on hand one year or longer after the time of issuance or sale of such bonds, are not necessary for the purpose or purposes for which the bonds were issued and that such proceeds are required for any other purpose or purposes for which bonds could be issued pursuant to this chapter, said board shall frame a question to be submitted to the legal voters of the district which shall state such other purpose or purposes, the amount of such proceeds to be expended for such other purpose or purposes and the source of such proceeds and such question shall be submitted to the legal voters of the district at an annual or special school election held not more than six years after the time of issuance or sale of such bonds, which election shall be called and held, and the result thereof ascertained, recorded and made known in the manner provided with respect to authorization of the issuance of school bonds of the district, but if any of such bonds mature beyond the period prescribed by section 18A:24-5 with respect to such other purpose or purposes (computed from the date of such annual or special election), such question shall not be submitted to the legal voters unless prior thereto the commissioner shall endorse, upon a certified copy thereof, his consent to the submission thereof as prescribed in this article.
