CITY AND COUNTY
ENTER NEW YEAR
Opposition To Raising Tax
Rate Develop ng Despite
.The 1947-48 fiscal year for both
Kew Hanover county and the
municipal government of the city
was ushered in yesterday with
some ramifications to be un
wound and some problems to be
worked out by both the commis
sioners and the council.
Received by the city was a
check for $50,000 representing the
municipal government’s share in
ABC store receipts for the fiscal
year just endingi Total receipts for
the year were $250,000.
The city paid off $11,000 in bonds
and $37,675 in interest. The county
retired $33,000 in bonds and $14,526
in interest. The annual audit for
the city was begun by J. B. Mc
Cabe at a cost of $2,500 and the
county’s audit, costing $1,500, was
commenced by Edward C. Craft.
Prospects are that the county
will finish the year with a slight
surplus. But city fathers, princi
pally due to smaller than antici
pated ABC store payments, are
expected to come under the line
with a small deficit.
Future tax increases for the
city seem probable although the
county is expected to go along
with its present rate.
However, considerable opposition
to increasing the tax rate by the
council is developing. Realtors
have advised council members
they will protest any effort to
raise the levy.
