Aug. 30—Mayor j Sam Botts Thursday said the $24 -1 000 storm sewer would be the only ! project the Harlingen city commis sion would ask to be built out of available federal funds. This pro)- j ect would be built under a WPA j grant, he said. A planning committee has beA appointed by the Harlingen Cham ber of Commerce to advise the city commission in their requests for grants. Mayor Botts said that he doubted that the chamber of com merce committee would change the city commission's plan although he ; and the commission lad agreed to meet with them. Mayor Botts raid that the reason they were asking for no more fed eral grants was because the city would be forced to vote bond Issues to defray part of the expenses of , construction and the tax burden ; was already too heavy. He said the I city tax rate in Harlingen was $180 ; per hundred dollar valuation exclu-, s.ve of school tax. This brings the! total per hundred dollar valuation to around four dollars.
