To the Personal Tax Payers of Douglas County:
I shall very much regret to issue distress warrants
to the sheriff for collection of the 1917 county and 1917
city delinquent personal taxes on February 1st, as pro
vided by Section 6483, Statutes of Nebraska. It would
only add additional cost and expenses to said taxes.
For the benefit of the tax payers, I will extend the
time for paying these taxes to February 15th. Please
pay them now, if you believe in conservation.
