Regular meeting of Board of County Commissioners. Members
Erosout, James Hollinrnko, chnirnmn, Geo. W. Duncan and Juines
Bond of Carl Weitz, road ovorseor district No. 22 was oiuninotl
It coininc: to tho notice of tho board that sorao confusion exists
in the records as to whether a public road was opened commencing
at the southeast corner section 12-20-r0 and extending wesb to
county lino, or one commencing at tho northeast corner sectiqlifi2-20-50
and extending west to tho county line, thoy investigated'' tho
records uijd found that in January 1889, (Commissioner's RocorU
page 4u) a consent petition by JL. A. lJaul and others was presontefc
praying for a road commencing at southeast corner 12-20-50 and
wah granted and ordered opened. Thoy also found tho original
potition and also report of survey of tho road, both showing south
cast corner 12-20-50. Thov thoroforo instruct the cleric to chango
such parts of tho records as to show otherwise, to show that road
No. 18 begins at southeast corner section 12-20-50 and oxtonding
west to county lino.
In regard to road beginning at tho northeast corner section 12-20-50
and extending west to county line, thoy lind that a petitibn
was filed hi January 1889 (Commissioners' Record page 48) by Or
villo Kidwell and others praying for opening of that road and ttijat
same was referred to a sppcial commissioner to view and ropdrt.
but that no report of record was over made nor any further action
taken, hence it is considered and determined by the board that tliis
road was never opened.
A. S. Enycart presented claim for refund of taxes to tho amount
of 15.51 on personal property for the year 1898, paid in 1894., It
appears to the board that the same personal property had boon as
sessed in the state of Missouri before being brought to Box Butta
county, and that tho tuxes for tho year 1898 on said property werp
paid by him in Missouri, and also had paid taxes for tho year 189?t.
"represented by tax receipt No. 191 on said property m 'BoxButte"
county, wherefore it appears that tho identical property had been
taxed twice for the same year, it. is therefore ordered by tljo board
that tho county treasurer refund the said taxes of Slu.51 to said 2v.
The board then took up the consideration of claims against Box
Butte county and having first obtained a certificate from the
county treasurer showing amounts of delinquent porsonal'.taxcs
agajnst each of tho several claimants, allowed the following olaims
and .ordered warrants drawn on the generaj fund for s,'uch amounts
as remain after deducting such delinquent taxes.
