Aug. 2 on a proposed budget for 1949 which will raise tax levies approximately 2i mills. This net levy of 22.993 mills compares with a 1947 levy of 20.598 mills. Proposed expenditures for the year are estimated at $277,300 with $135,350 of this amount to be raised by taxation. This compares with estimated expenditures of $32,557 for the current year of which $117,292 was to be raised by taxation. The major portion of the increase will go toward a retirement fund for policemen and firemen, established under civil service but delinquent in the city for about 10 years. Mayor Harold S. Henry explained that the city administration has been working for about a year to determine the amount which must be paid Into the retirement fund. The council also authorized the mayor and city clerk to sign a contract with John E. Wagner of Central City, for repairs on the Beauty dam, to be done by the "jetcrete" method of applying concrete pneumatically. A maximum expenditure of $1,500 was authorized, with work to begin early next week, weather permitting. Wagner agreed to furnish bond for the work, with the city to pay the bond writing fee. In a report on parking meter income, Mayor Henry announced that Wednesday's collections should complete the $20,000 total revenue estimated for the first year when the meters were installed July 21, 1947. Collections Monday night totaled $19,935. HOLIDAY EX P ERT WATCH REPAIR SERVICE! ON SALE TODAY ! Corn Cults and •Superstitions page 44 P. G.
