A case involving $130,000.00, worth
of district paving bonds and which
lias been followed closely by investors,
communities and banking concerns
throughout the state anu which alfecta
every property owner and citizen of
Red Clouu was decided in district
court Saturday by Judge Blacklcdge
when he held tluit the mayor and city
council had no authority under the
law to refund the district paving
bonds into general bonds of thia city.
"fh,is cause, known as the .mutter of
refunding bonds of the city of Jlcd
Cloud arose out of the default in
pcyment of certain district paving
bonds, the .holders of which were seek
ing by judicial action to have said
bonds, which are an indebtedness
against the paving district only, re
funded or changed into bonds which
would be a general charge or indebt
edness against the whole city.
The question as to whether munici
pal paving bonds are a special or
general obligation of the city has
not been pr.ssed upon by tl.e Su
preme Court of this state and its
linnl determination by the high court
will be far reaching in its effects.
Two different groups of property
owners and citizens of Red Cloud
came into court and resisted the pro
posed refunding of the bonds. One
group consisted of property owners
within the districts uffected who had
paid in full their paving assessment
and who, if the bonds were changed
into a general obligation of the city,
would bo required to pay,an addition
al amount. The other group consisted
of property owners living outside of
the said paving districts and there
fore received no benefits r from the
paving, but who would likewise bo re
quired, if the bonds wore refunded, to
pay for the paving in the districts.
Lengthy briefs wore filed by the
attorneys representing the different
litigants. Tho case was argued and
submitted to the Court on October
ICth last. The matter was taken un
der advisement by Judge Blacklcdge
at that time and a written opinion
was rendered by him Saturday.
