TAK RATE OF 18 MILLS CHEATS OH NEEDS OF FUTURE Continued from Paee One pairs" appropriations hasn't it?" ask ed Commissioner Williams. City At torney Comley said I he didn't know, but that he didn't think money ap propriated for "macadam repairs" could be used for any. other purpose. The board then cut $25,000 from the $60,000 for macadam repairs in the Second district and placed it for street repairs for the department of public works. Added to the nan mill tax for this purpose which will amount to $57,617.16 there will be $82,517.16 available for the adminis tration to spend for Warrenite this summer. The board cut the proposed $40,400 for new macadam to $6,200 which, will be used, to lay new macadam in Park avenue north of Korth avenue. In the First district $10,000 was al lowed for macadam repairs and $35, 000 in the Second, district. ' The comfort stations asked, for by the Park department were cut out entirely and the appropriation for the Seaside park seawall was , cut from $20,000 to $15,000. The appropria tion of $500 for a golfers shelter at .Beardsley park was also cut. ,'" -- No appropriation was inade for new men for the fire department. . Every item allowed at the prelim inary hearing for this department was pared somewhat. The proposed White Way extensions were not al lowed, although, some ox me - mem bers strove valiantly to have the ap propriations go, through. ,':-' There has been a, working capital of $100,00.0 in the. hands of the city treasurer and this "enables the city auditor to meet payments prorapuy during May and June when money does not come in readily and the first bills of the fiscal year' fall due. De (v, nrotest of City Auditor Keating the board cut, this balance to $50,000. iV f .. . r.vor Wilson, who attended tn meemgf favored all proposed . appro- priations for Street i work, .: especially the bituminous .macaaam jjiwiiuoiuvu, hut he objected .strennously to, srant- , -halt mill tax for new school jTyor said the board Blrrayjv ja3 enough money for school buildings for the coming year. ; Ha ac cused the board of education of pur-, r-haatne- several years ago, a. 6ite for m-.hool house where no school has been built and where nonels likelyjto ha rfo.1- VM.r.1 COBB. uwo.""

"'rVi There was a hot debate over the i proposition to' give a halfmm tax to the street department. Mr. Buechler wanted this cut on 'the ' ground that the department already has ; enough money for-street work and 1 that -the department is conducted ; in an ineffi- clent and wasteful manner. "People expect v a low tax rate this year,' said Commissioner Sherman. We have already! appropriated large sums of money . for street , work '. and we get little for it... We must keep the appropriations down this year. I be lieve the people will be satisfied with less money for street work. , v . ' ' However. Messrs.

Both Commissioners Kirk and An j derson wanted the, appropriation for 1 the extension - of . the White Way to - out Fairfield avenue from Broad street to Courtland street. , Commissioner Kirk said that the value -of the prop- - 1 erty would be increased , and more Itaxes might be collected in sections where the White Way was established. i I The- appropriation was cut out, how- 1 ever. j mo propusraon to give tne- nark at '?oard hrought on a lively tUt I wiiimoaiuuct.

"and 1 he told me that it was Impossible to get local contractors to figure on the work be cause it entailed the hrinsriner of n expensive plant on the job and if the whole job was figured at once it could be done about 10 per cent cheaper.' On the vote the seawall appropria tion stayed in, although it was voted to cut out the $500 golfers' shelter it Beardsley park. Commissioner Kirk placed the skids under the .branch public library prop osition, saying: "This is a luxury which I do not think we can afford. I do not believe in bringing education books to the door of people. If they, are interested enough they will : go where the library is to get the books." I Two new officials are added to the charities department. They are a family visitor to receive $760 per year and a children's officer to take charge of neglected and dependent children who is receiving a like amount. The board voted to allow one more sanitary inspector for the board of health. ' Commissioner Williams said that although the Good Housing asso ciation had asked for two' inspectors. his sub-committee felt that one was all that could toe afforded at this time. City Auditor Keating did not favor the ation of the board in passing a resolution turning the cash r .balance into the city revenue which was nrst adopted by the board.! '-"I would call your attention, gentle men, to the fact that Bridgeport has formerly occupied a unique place among the cities of the United State in that we had such a balance to meet our bills propmtly.. It will not be well for this city if the report get abroad that we no , longer have this balance availahle. For a .city spending $200,000 per month,' $100,000 Is not too large n. cash Taalance '.to have. It la a very small reserve for a corporation doing a $2,500,000 business per year." When the , appropriations had all been gone over and the tax rate an nounced, Commissioner Keeler moved its adoption and the ratification of all the actions of 'the- board. ; Commis sioner - Anderson r was opposed. He thought the board ought to go over all items again and endeavor to fix a; low. er tax rate Mayor Wilson was in ac cord with this plan as were Commis sioners Sherman and Buechler. They later caucused ,their. colleagues in an effort to get another, vote to cut out the half mill tax for the pecvementa and the other half mill for schools. , On the vote to Introduce resolutions to ratify the (board's action.
