District No. 6 of Mississippi County be author- zed to float a $100,000 bond issue o pay'for cleaning of more than JO miles of ditches is scheduled o. be :heard in county Court at 0 a.m. Dec! 19. To retire this Indebtedness, the commissioners also have petitioned for . an additional tax of 2.25 per cent to be levied against the original assessed benefits in the district from 1052 through 1957. This added levy is the same as- essment that hns been approved by the County Court yearly since 1948 ind hence would not increase the :otal :*-ixes llmt Ir.niiuwiiers have )een (laying since then. Over-all Cleaning PUnnfd Major difference In the commissioner's request this year Is the entering of this levy on the tax looks for the period from 1952 :hrough 1957 and the pledging of 't to retire the proposed bond issue. The commission explained that it would be more beneficial to the district to borrow the. $100,000 and let a contract for over-al'. cleaning the ditches instead of doing the work piecemeal on a yearly basis. Ditch redredging activity Dunklin County, Mo., was pointecj out as necessitating cleaning of the major ditches and several laterals in District IB. The cleancd-out Dunklin County ditches empty Into the District 16 canals amounts of water in excess of that which the Mississippi County ditches can handle unless also cleared of dirt, branches and other obstructions, the commissioners said. Regular tax rate for the district 2.75 per cent. Tills was set 19-10 and most of It goes for retiring previous indebtedness. The added levy has been approved Ir past years to finance cleaning ol the ditches.- 1951 Funds Ordered Work scheduled for 1Q51 already has been provided for by a Counlj Court order issued Oct. IS and approving the additional tax of 2.2a per cent for that year. This order however, also authorizes the com missioncrs to pledge 1931 revenue, from this assessment to secure pay mcnt of the proposed $100,000 bond issue.. The petition calls for an intercs rate of not more than three pe cent and the .ilcdging of any othc portion of the district's mainten aiice money to retire the issue. C. R, Redman, Jr., engineer o Kcnnett, Mo., has been retained b; the district and has been maklni a survey of the ditches for th past several weeks.
