13-c. Power of cities to provide moneys to replace revenues from excise taxes. The common council or other governing body of any city, in which the trafficking in liquor is prohibited wholly or partly may raise, as long as the trafficking in liquor is prohibited, an amount not exceeding the revenue derived from excise taxes on alcoholic beverages in the last year in which the excise taxes were received. Such amount to be raised shall be included in the tax levy in addition to all other sums which the common council or other governing body is authorized to raise, any provision of the city charter to the contrary notwithstanding.
In a city having a board of estimate and apportionment, action by the common council or other governing body under this section shall not be taken except with the consent of such board.
