LEVY RAISED TWO MILLS
Tax Rate for County Probably Will
Be Fixed at 14.4.
BOARD WILL MEET NEXT WEEK
I'uuimiulonrrs Kay the Increaae of
23,00O from lllsher Aaluatloue
Would Nit Be Sufficient
The tax levy for. county purposes will be
lncreaiwil probably about i mills when the
'lrvy Is made by the county board next
wtx-k. This, at leant, Is the opinion of
a majority of tha. county commlsiiloners,
ho, with the "county clerk and county
assetisor, comprise the assoakincnt board.
According U the commissioners, the In
crease of t.OOO which would be produced
by the increased valuations if the levy
was the fume as lust yaar, will not be suf
ficient to meet the conditions that con
front the board, and a boost In the levy
will be tweeasary If the work on roads and
bridges Is to continue on the earns scale
as the last two or three years.
Th commissioners, or, at Irust, a ma
jority of them, admit a mistake was made
last yer In reduolti- the lovy S mills. This
reduction, they now say, was too largo.
If a more conservative cut had been made.
It would now be unnecssary to make an
The cut lust year was due to the large
balanoea reiualnlua; In the load and tUe
bridge funds. These balances have been
eaten up and contracts have already been
let against the levy about to be made.
The luoreasa In the levy this year will be
In these two funds. The difference In the
conUKion of the funds this year and a
yvar ago Is disclosed by a report com
piled by County Comptroller Solomon for

year the road fund had a balance of 17,

The bridge fund, which contained 143,515.76
July 81, li07. now contains but tl3,t2.38.
bom Claims rending.
Further than this there are. pending
against the road fund contracts and claims
amounting to 30,359 and against the bridge
fund amounting to 113.304, or about enough
to cover the present balance. The levy of
1.5 mills for Ue road fund last year pro
duced HS.774 and this year It would pro
duce &1.712. but as there are already claims
against the road fund amounting to JlS.000
more than the balance In the fund, the
commissioners assert, the old levy would
not produce enough money to carry on the
work next year.
While last year's levy would produce over
K'1,000 on this year's valuations, the county
gets but bnlf of this, the law providing tlu
other half shall go to the park board. This
would reduce the amount available to a
little over JJ.COa
The levy for bridge purposes was cut last
year from 1.5 mills to .4 of a mill and It Is
In this fund, It Is asserted, that the prin
cipal part of the proposed increase will be
placed. The county is grading a large
number of roods and this work requires
the building of many culverts and bridges.
The commissioners say that unless the road
campaign for next ear Is to be hampered
the Increnxes In the fund must he rpade.
It Is believed by the commissioners that
the Increase will not have to be over ;
mills. This will stir, leave the levy a mill
below what It was when the slash of t
mills was made last summer. Last year
the levy was 15 4 mills, but the board cut
9 of a mill from the road fund and 2.1 milts
from the bridge fund, niuklng a reduction
of S mills.
