County officials -were notified Tuesday of, a decision by Governor McNutt's unemployment relief commission which will raise 19M-poor r*li*f tax- l«vl«s of-every taxing unit above'thelr pr*s'ent estimates. They we're-informed by William H. Boolt, rdlrector of the commls- »loo7th«t" y counties-raceivlng federal aid will b« required'to levy taxes naxt -month sufficient to collsct raon«y during th« oomlnr\y»»r ,to r«imour«« th« county general fund · 1or the full amount of f«d»ral funds -loansd to the county during 193J. In othsr words, the county will have to pay back federal'money It ' has been receiving · this year, -but ·will 'pay it baclc-lnto :lts own treasury and not back to the federal government., · '·' · Not to P»y.. All ICxpomw This arrangemtnt has been decided upon,-Book said, because It ls probable that th« government will · not provide the entire cost of relief naxt year, as it has so far this year, sjld may : not furnish more .than half th« money for indigent aid in the remaining months of the present year. Therefore, the commission's policy proposes that the county have money in Its own general fund, ralstd by taxation, to meet a great : 'share of the .coming year's .bills. 'According to .'Book, .the county should not expect more than '50 or «0 p«r cent of th* cost of relief to b» paid from federal funds beginning with-relief'bills Incurred on ' and after Aug. 1 of this year. ' f ; - ..' Must Balsc WOO.OOO. ; . This policy will mean that re-^ ' li»f rl«vl»»,ln;«ach.-townshlp will b« ralssd abovisV their present estl'^ mats*. Howard county. has receir: ed around $200,000 In federal funds since Jan. 1, and now will hav« to rail· about that much by taxation next year. Copies of Book's-^announcement -were'' mailed to all township trustees and members of Ml* county tax ".adjustment board \ Tuesday, at the request of the state director., . . ; Whether, the county. will have' ·nough to pay ; .Its 'portion 1 ; of the bills for the remaining months of this year appears to depend largely, upon the November collections 'of taxat. The county now has 119,-, 000 \on hand to help pay the rest . ·' of this year's expense, and will need · a good fall collection- to -meet it* share .of the relief burden. Relief . exptnsa for.the rest of ,1933 should not be as. heavy-as .that of the first - six months, with employment ..Increased and business improved! .It /Is believed..^ - ' ·..... -. · ,· .
