The statement Is a condensation of reports annually made by the aty Treasurer and the Finance ?'ommlttee of the Common Council from March 31. 1?????, to March 31, 1896. These seven years were chosen because they include the period during which the ?o-enl.ed Martin act, passe.] by the Legislature lt. IH?*?,, has been In operation in this city. Thi? art provides f.r th? collection of pest due taxes, and direct? the appli? cation of the proceeds thereof, when collected spe? cifically forbidding their application to th.- renerai fund of the city >o long as the bonds of the city remain unpaid.
