Dies after son loses first match Slate holds up l maicl finirint in.! in mcc * Friday Mt«IINt !•*•» T - . County Auditor Marc Moore reports the state comptroller's office has not yet certified the tax levy to be made in counties of Iowa, hence taxpayers will not be able to know their tax cost until sometime perhaps in late January. Under a new law of the 1967 legislature the comptroller now computes school millage for each county in the state. This is done to allocate state aid. Then the auditors of the state add enough property tax to make up the difference between the state aid and the school budget. The comptroller reported Dec. 18 to Mr. Moore that 40 counties in the state have not yet sent in their budgets — hence until all nave corae in the state aid can not be allocated. NOT RETIRING Leo immerfall, county assessor, is not retiring as of January because of health reasons as reported. He will continue on as advisor at his present salary until they leave Algona.
