CITY DADS WOULD
Increase in Valuation Will
Yield Thirty Thousand Ad
EIGHT MILLS REDUCTION
A tentative 1917 city levy statement,
prepared by the department of ac
counts and finances, indicates a re
duction of approximately $250,000, .r
8 mills, on the levy.
The increase of valuation will of it
self yield an additional $.10,000. The
special levy of $128,160, made for this
year on account of the South Omaha
and Dundee deficit, due to merger,
will not have to be repeated. It is pro
posed to reduce the bond redemption
fund from $150,000 to $100,000. and
the sinking fund from $400,000 to
$J50,000. In mills the proposed re
