Commissioner Freeland, after
much delving into the records,
has brought up a lot of figures
to prove the commission plan of
government a big -winner over the
old councilnianic system.
The tax levy has been 12 mills
for all of the commission years
and for the last of the old council.
Prior to the last council year the
levy ran up to as high as 15 mills,
but was always above 12.
Besides this, the year the old
council made a 12-mill levy they
robbed the sinking fund of $65,
--000 and spent it. In addition,
the old council never Bet aside
anything for sinking fund; the
commission is putting away $60,
--000 a year for this.
More than this, the commission
now has several million extra
bonds to pay interest on which
the old council never had. Then
the commission has paid back en
gineering rebates stolen from
citizens amounting to over $20,
--000 under the old regime.
These and numerous other
things the commission is gradual
ly straightening out make a good
showing for the commission.
