PAGE TWELVB. THE DAILY COURIER. CONNELLSVILLE. PA. FRIDAY, JANUARY 21, 193S. Controller's Report Appeal --is ~Sustained UNIONTOWN, Jan. 21.--Appeal ol county commissioners from controller's report lor the fiscal year allowed and sustained by Judge Harry A. Cottom to so far as it related to the two per cent commission retained by the county treasurer upon money paid him .by sundry land owners as taxes on land returned on account of unpaid taxee. The action of the court was" revealed In an opinion 'and order filed Tuesday with Prothonotary John Brady in which it wns"sct,forth_that the amount collected by the-trea?- ·urer,-on the two per cent basis, "whs not shown in the controller's report but must be ascertained by fiscal authorities andjshowfl-bxiarstipula- tion to be filed, or a'hearms held and testimony taken In order" to~ determine the exact- amounts rto be charged against thc'treasurer." ---.. The appeal of the" commissioner's ·was made from the 26th annual report of Controller Albert Montgomery for the fiscal year ending January 4, 1937, and filed January 26. The first item to the appeal re- flated to the two per cent commission retained by H. D. Minerd, county treasurer, on ccrtalrcsums of money paid to him by sundry land owners as taxes on lands which had been returned on account of unpaid taxes. Of these taxes, Minerd paid proper proportions to various school districts,* townships, boroughs and cities of the county, deducting two per cent of his commission. County Commissioners John W · Rankin, Arthur Higmbotham and Michael Karolcik contended, in their appeal, that this two per cent,.belonged to the eounty_and~should be paid by the treasurer to the county, The appeal also complained because the controller's report docs not show this amount charged against the treasurer. The app~eal further set forth that certain-portions of the^ money collected-belonged to tHe county, from which Tfie treasurer-^, deducted- two per cent which has not been paid by him to tho county and which Is not charged against him in the controller's report." The commissioners further complain that the controller's report does not show to whom the $1,380--listed In the report merely as "salary to clerks, $1,380"--was paid. The credit in this sum is Improperly shown, as claimed by the commissioners, who contend the sum should be charged against the treasurer. ·· However, relative to the second item in the appeal, the court, in its opinion, revealed that Treasurer Minerd had furnished him additional information which showed the $1,330 had been spent as follows: Ivenore G. Darr, May, 1036, to JDc- cembcr, 1936, at $110 per month $880; Armaruth Darr, April »nd May 1936, at $100 each, $200; Charles White, November, 1936, $100; Yusten Beckwith, October and November, 1936, at $100 each, $200. Total $1,380. The county solicitor conceded the appeal as to this item it withou' merit. It' was, therefore, given no consideration by the court. Next step in the proceedings wil be efforts of fiscal authorities to file » stipulation or testify at a hearing to determine the exact amount to be charged against the treasurer in compliance with the court order sustaining the appeal on the two per cent retained by the treasurer.
