Then ' , Watch for Further Announcements Attorney Simons Talks On Ox Girt Government (Continued From Page Three) taxes after receiving payments to turn over the money to the treasurers of the respective taxing units " the speaker suggested. "Such s system," Simons contended, "would mean a saving of $3,000,000 annually to the taxpayers of the com monwealth". He explained that a centralised tax collecting system Is operating successfully in this city, Philadelphia and in at least twenty - one states. Favors School District Merger , Simons urged consolidation of school districts into county units after declaring that there are 2,587 separate and distinct school boards in the state. He suggested els legislation to centralize school districts a bill providing establishment of ' a county school board of unpaid directors appointed by the court or the governor, selection of a salaried executive such as superintendent of schools, to direct and carry out the plans of the non - paid directors. "This would make uniform," Simons maintained, "the educational facilities in - all parts of the county whether poor districts, industrial sections or residential sections of better type. It would permit bulk buying of supplies, would permit uniform salaries Of teachers and instructors and eliminate the many unnecessary officials that each board must now have. Such legislative changes would give Penn sylvania sixty - seven school boards in stead of 2,587." Simons further recommended abolition of duplication in city and county assessments. To bring this about he suggested a bill to centralize the as sessment of all property in each county in a single countrywide board. The, valuations reached by this board, Simons said, would be used by school districts, poor districts, boroughs, town ships and other governmental units in making their mlllage and tax levies. Consolidation of poor districts as a means of lessening costs In adminis tering relief was another project urged by Simons. The speaker suggested legislation which would establish In every county an appointed welfare board composed of unpaid citizens. The bill would also provide, Simons said, for the appointment by the board of a paid director technically qualified for public welfare administration and that the board would administer poor relief, mothers' assistance, old age pensions, blind pensions, care of dependent and neglected children and other public welfare services. Simons declared there are 424 separate poor districts in the state with about 920 paid poor directors. Advocates Indiana Plan Simons also suggested establishment of the Indiana Plan in this state which would set up a board to hear appeals. "The Pennsylvania taxpayer can do little but stand silent while borough, city, township or county of ficials approve exorbitant budgets and new issues of bonds which are often unnecessary. Many states, Indiana in particular, have created a tax commission which sits as a board of appeals to pass on complaints of taxpayers against extravagant budgets and unnecessary bond issues, : "In states where these commissions exist, ten taxpayers can have their municlpa budget reviewed by the state commission. The latter has power to cut down budgets, and also to refuse bond issues, if, in its opinion they are too high or unwarranted," Simons declared. In connection with . this, Simons urged a uniform system of fiscal affairs for local governmental units. The legislation suggestion on this problem called for the creation of a state tax commission, establishment of a uniform system for local governmental units and forcing local officials to auks periodic reports to a state official on their financial status. . "Many needed reforms can be brought about without difficulty," Simons said. "But some bearing vitally on abolition of ox cart government must wait for revision ,of Pennsylvania's 61 - year - old constitution. The greatest step forward toward a modern, economical type of local government in tlus state would be for the Legislature to issue a call for a constitutional convention to be held within the time specified by law and to draft a modern constitution for submission to the people at the earliest possible date," Simons declared. He quoted Franklin D, Roosevelt as declaring "archaic, expensive and wasteful forms of government eat up the taxes. He also quoted Charles A. Waters, state treasurer, as stating 1 see relief only in abolition of ox cart government." City in Another Step ; On Single Assessment (Continued From Page Three) maker had members of the Bureau of Recreation before them. The board had asked for $51,659, includ lng a "supplemental" budget of $15 430 which covered several work relief projects.
