FROSTBURG-K E Y S E R frostburg-GeorgesCreek AAVW Meets Announced And Tri-State Area News (22) Evening Times, Friday, November 25, 1955 Westernport Bon Listed Contrary To State Law •: WESTERNPORT — The agree ment of the Town of Westernpor to sell $374,000 of bonds to Thack art Grant and Company of Phila delphia is contrary to state law on two points, according to an opin ion of Horace P. Whitworth, town attorney. The matter was discussed at the regular meting of Mayor Okey.E. Michael and Commission ers Wednesday evening. The agreement provided that the town receive 95 per cent for each $1,000 bond, and that the town pay an interest rate of 3% cents interest and that the issue must be paid for in 30 years. It also provides that the town can recall the issue in five years, should Westernport find it advantageous to refinance the bonds at a lower rate of interest. A letter from Whitworth stated in part: "The offer made by the bonding company to purchase the bonds from you at 95 per cent of . par cannot be considered in view of Section 34 (2) of Chapter 423 of the Laws of 1955. This section, in so many words, prohibits the sale of municipal bonds for less than par and of course no lawyer could certify that the proposed agreement is not in violation of the law." .••'.. "Second, another 'objectionable feature is that they characterize the bonds which you issue as general obligation bonds. This is not actually correct." "With the limitation on the taxing power .of; the Town 'now prescribed by its charter. The town cannot be so described. It could be set forth-in the bond ordinance that within the charter limitation the obligation to levy taxes exists but this is different from stipulation, as they do, that taxes shall dAgreementCDA. Receives New Members At Mt. Savage be levied sufficient to pay the bonds as they come due." "Only submission of a change in the town charter to a vote of the •egistered voters could change the existing laws in this respect and in my view, such a submission would have very little chance of passing even if you considered the same advisable. I do not think such a change would be desirable and in any case would take abou two months to bring about." "The only thing I can advise you to do now is to take the mattei up with Thackart Grant and Company, explain your difficulties anc see if they can reconsider their offer to purchase with the existing powers of the town. With the money for the sale o! jonds the town proposes to burlc a filtration plant on Westernport rlill and a storage tank on the new Bruce High School grounds to provide sufficient water at all times 'or the school and the people in :hat area. The other bid the town had was 'rom Alex Brown of Baltimore for 33 years at a 3% per cent and they pay less than par which would pay 98 per cent. Besides the using of the money on the two projects, $116,000 will be used to pay off existing bonds due next May. Mayor Michael stated he con- .acted a representative of the Thackart Grant and Company who will submit another proposition to he Mayor and Commissioners at heir regular meeting Wednesday at 7:30 p. m. : Brief Mention Mrs. Robert Walker, Mullen Avenue, Luke, is a.patient in Potomac /alley Hospital, Keyser. Mrs. May Dawson, Green" Street, s ill at her home. F URN ITTU RE. MODERN AND TRADITIONAL FURNITURE . . . LAMPS .'. RADIOS . . .TELEVISION . . APPLIANCES . . . BEDDING . . SPAC! HEATERS ...
