TWO IRONWOOO DA11Y GLOBE, IRONW0OD, MICHIGAN FRIDAY, MAY 28,-1965. Levy Proposed Tax for 1965 Set at $94,106 BESSEMER—The Besse m e r City Council, meeting in special session Tuesday to determi n e the tax appropriation bill, proposed a 1965 tax levy of $94.106 to be submitted to the public at a hearing scheduled for Monday, June 7, at 7 p.m., prior to the opening of the regular meeting The sum represents a levy of 19.31 mills (1.913 cents on each dollar) of the 1965 state equalized value of $4,871,947; or 42.18 mills (4.218 cents) on each dollar of the 1965 locally assessed value of $2,230,675. Included in the 19.31 mills are two mills collection, ($9,743) allowed for garbage by the statutes; and 1.62 mills ($7,915) for the city's share of the police and fire department employes retirement and pension fund, authorized by the electors when the system was instituted; and 15.69 mills ($77,320) for general operation of departments under the general fund. * * * The statutes allow a levy of 20 mills for general operation. This is the second successi v e year that the Council has levied, for operation, a sum considerably less than the law allows For the current year's operation the levy was 19.13 on the 1964 equalized valuation of $5,247,600 or 42.19 on the locally assessed valuation of $2,377,200. The proposed levy for operation next year is $6,000 less than for the current year on the 1964 valuation. The reduction in the tax levy needed toward the budget, results from the program of rigid economy in operation during the past several years, which wiped out a deficit of about $100,000 accumulated during the depression years, and restored the city to solvency a few years ago. Continued economy in budgeting and spending, resulted in a balance of $3,874.55 in the general fund at the close of the past year, Sept. 30, 1964, according to discussion by councilmen in the procedure of determination of the budgetary needs and tax levy for the ensuing year beghv nlng Oct. 1, 1965. The tax appropriation bill involves only appropriation of tax revenue to exclud i n g the various funds, the appropriat i ons from income from outside sources, which is estimated at $105,200 for the current year. In determining appropriat i o n of tax revenue to the vari o u s departments under the general fund, the Council conside red budgeted needs of the departments, the anticipated status of the various funds at the close of the current fiscal year, Sept. 30, 1965; the income to various funds from outside sources, and financial needs of each department for operation during the ensuing * * * The appropriation of the tax revenue in the sum of $94,106 is proposed as follows: Contingent fund—$11,000. This is the first year that tax revenue is appropriated to this fund. It has been the practice to deposit, in this fund, revenue from outside sources, such as sales tax, which has not been earmarked specifically for other year. * * * appropriation Plans Made for Club's Outing BESSEMER — The Coun t y Seat Home Extension Club, meeting Monday, made plans for the annual outing.
