Cify Administration Most Ex
pensive in History df
Plattsmouth, Nub. July 7
In a recent issua of the News-Hkr-AU
I notice your reference to the funds
expended for street work in the city of
Plattsmouth in the last 5 years, giving
the figures at $42,009.00, The amount
is stupendous, but the statement seems
to jar but few tax payers in the city.
If you had shown that the appropria
tions for the last 5 years aggregated a
little over $7,000.00, and also if you had
shown the appropriations for the pro
ceeding 5 years with the approximate
expenditures for street work for com
parison, it might percolate into thc
heads of some of our taxpayers that in
stead of the city administration being
an economical one, it was the most ex
pensive one ever experienced in the
history f the city of Plattsmouth. We
heard much talk about reduction of
taxes, but never a word about the
amounts illegally expended. The en
forcement of the scavenger law brought
a huge fund into the city treasury but
it appears to have been a source of
worry to the administration until it
was dissipated. If it were not for the
funds received on back taxes, our city
would have been two or three times
what they were in the 5 years last past
or instead there would now be a deficit
in the treasury of some $19,000.00, in
stead of about $o,000 as is reported.
D. K. Barr. a prominent attorney of
Ashland, was in Plattsmouth Wednes

was strikingly unique was an outline of
