144.761. 1. No county or municipality imposing a local use tax pursuant to sections 144.757 to 144.761 may repeal or amend such local use tax unless such repeal or amendment is submitted to and approved by the voters of the county or municipality in the manner provided in section 144.757; provided, however, that the repeal of the local sales tax within the county or municipality shall be deemed to repeal the local use tax imposed pursuant to sections 144.757 to 144.761.

2. Whenever the governing body of any county or municipality in which a local use tax has been imposed in the manner provided by sections 144.757 to 144.761 receives a petition, signed by fifteen percent of the registered voters of such county or municipality voting in the last gubernatorial election, calling for an election to repeal such local use tax, the governing body shall submit to the voters of such county or municipality a proposal to repeal the county or municipality use tax imposed pursuant to sections 144.757 to 144.761. If a majority of the votes cast on the proposal by the registered voters voting thereon are in favor of the proposal to repeal the local use tax, then the ordinance or order imposing the local use tax, along with any amendments thereto, is repealed. If a majority of the votes cast by the registered voters voting thereon are opposed to the proposal to repeal the local use tax, then the ordinance or order imposing the local use tax, along with any amendments thereto, shall remain in effect.
