Council, After Informally Conferlng
and Going Over Finances of City
Reach Decision Rate Will
Be Half Mill Lower.
Large Amount of Work Has Been
Done But Council Sees Way
to Lower Rate.
In spite of the fact that the assessed-
valuation of Medford is lower
than It was last year, and that never
beforo have such strides been taken
towards civic improvement, tho tax
rato for 1910 In the city will bo low
er than this year. Tho council has
reached this decision after several
informal- mcotlngs and., after much
pausing over the finances of the city.
The tax rato next year will in all
probability bo 17 mills In tho city.
During 1909 the rato was 17 1-2
mills. While tho reduction is only
a half mill, still this represents much
when it is remembered that tho as
sessed valuation of tho city Is lower
and that nevr bfor has there been
a year during which greater strides
have been made for civic Improve
ment. Tho council will meet in special
session this evening.
