However, if sales tax provides revenue to meet such bonded indebtedness obligations, or if the debt is a general obligation of the municipality, the extension of any tax levy or general obligation for that purpose shall not become effective in new areas until an ordinance extending that tax levy or obligation is approved by voters of the area into which the tax levy or obligation is proposed to extend.

(C) Pre-consolidation bonded indebtedness or other debt for sewage collection systems, water distribution systems and streets, even if determined to be used for the benefit of a larger area than that which incurred the debt, shall remain the tax obligation of the area that incurred the debt.
