Bay St. Louis, Miss., Sept. 2, 1922. Sworn and subscribed to before me, Sylvan J. Ladner, a Notary Public in and for the City of Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. SYLVAN J. LADNER, (Seal.) Notary Public, Beat No. 5. September 2, 1922. Honorable Mayor and Board of Commissioners, City of Bay St. Louis. Dear Sirs: We, the undersigned Board of City Bond Commissioners, having assemi bled to consider and act upon the report of the special investigating committee relating to the construction of the Sea Wall, now in course of construction, respectfully submit the following: We took said report, and having made a personal visit to the various parts of said construction, considered same item by item. Ist. The* type “B” wall construction, south of the Wisner property, we found to be 8”-6” in total height as called for on the plans and the resolution of this Board. We take it for granted that the small error of 3 cited by the special committee resulted from the fact that said committee could only make a “superficial examination” under the circumstances; and we note that the said committee mentioned that its examination was necessarily of this nature. 2nd. The exposed reinforcing rods were located and have been properly concealed by adding extra concrete. Our engineers inform us that the exposure of a rod here and there does not materially affect the strength or stability of the work, for the reason that they designed the work with sufficient factors of safety in order to meet these minor defects in construe, tion, w’hich are liable to occur in all construction work of any magnitude. 3rd. The four seepage openings have been properly sealed. In fact, two of these places had been remedied before the said report was filed. We found that these w’ere very small pores through which the standing wa: ter behind the wall was finding an i outlet. 4th. The porous surfaces found here and there in the concrete w r ere found to be due to the fact that in the process of mixing, small masses of concrete naturally accumulate in the angles of the mixer, and when the mixer is emptied these small portions come out last and not having the full proportion of mortar they are lighter weights and are consequently forced to the outer surfaces. When the forms are removed all such places are exposed, and they are subsequently reamed out and the proper concrete inserted. We find that this work has been done in a manner that is entirely satisfactory. sth. In reference to the decreased length of the sheet piling noted, we went into this matter thoroughly, both with the engineer and contractor; and we find that the same superficial quantity of lumber is being used as was used in the 6-ft. lengths; and that the difference is purely in the shape in which the boards are sawed. It was shown to us that considerable difficulty was encountered in getting the correct alignment of these piling, due to the sharp points indicated on the plans. It was further shown that, by sawing these piling square across, they could be driven to better advantage to all concerned, and as a matter of fact the solid surface of the sheet piling wall is practically 6 inches deeper than shown on the plans, which constitutes an improvement in the construction. We found also that this slight change was made in the proper manner by the engineers after they had consulted members of this Board, and that said change is fully authorized by the specifications and otherwise in the premises. Glh. The slight batter noted in the sheet piling at a certain point in Type “A” wall was caused by some tree roots at that point and extending only a few feet. This is a point of such minor importance that we deem it hardly worth considering. We will state, however, that so far as we are able to ascertain that no similar occurrance has taken place elsewhere. 7th. As to the inaccuracy in the above mentioned alignment of the sheet piling, we find this is theoretically true; but so far as we can see it does not constitute a defect. For the reason that any irregularity does not affect the quantity of concrete. In other words, should a piling be driven with a transverse angle with respect to the horizontal axis, the decreased thickness in the concrete lip would be correspondingly increased in the thickness of the opposite lip. As we understand it, the fundamental purpose of these sheet piling is twofold, i. e., to form an anchor at the toe of the wall and to reinforce the bearing power of the soil. They act to the further extent to protect the remote posibility of undermining. In none of the respects con the deviations in alignment noted impair the integrity of same. We find, however, that considerable improvement has been made in this feature since the shset piling are being shaped as above described. Bth. The method of the temporary anchoring of the steel reinforcing, to which the committee demurred, we found to be the most feasible for this particular type of construction. Both the engineers and the construction foreman explained all of the factors governing this feature; and they further explained that the wood blocks that are put in to hold the rods in place are tamped into the soil in advance of the concrete pouring, so that these blocks are not left in the slab construction. 9th. The matter of the square (Continued from Page Four.) ~TAX REDUCTION POSSIBLE. COUNTY AND MUNICIPAL BUDGET SYSTEMS. Jackson, Miss., Aug. 26, 1922. To the Taxpayers: Do you want your taxes reduced? Anew law' was enacted in 1922 enabling you to do so. Chapter 225, Law's of 1922, gives a majority of the voters the right to reduce taxes. It authorizes a majority of the resident property owners to petition an election as to whether taxes may be imposed for any item of expense, for the county,- city or town. It prohibits, after such petition has been : filed, the Supervisors or Aldermen from imposing taxes, unless an election favoring the expenditure has been held. This law requires the Boards of Supervisors and Aldermen to publish, in September, a statement of the money which they propose to expend for the various items of expense dur. ing the ensuing year. This is called “BUDGET OF EXPENSES.” It makes a Supervisor or Alderman liable on his bond for voting for any expenditure exceeding the amount set out in the Published Budget. If you will investigate, carefully, you will find that schools and roads and other public necessities are responsible for a large part of your taxes; that county and local taxes are by far the largest part of your taxes. This is a business proposition that the Legislature has provided to give you a right to satisfy yourselves as to* what will be done with your money; or to stop wastefulness and extravagance in the expenditure of same bv your county and municipal boards.* The HIGH* TAX RATES (not high assessed valuations) are responsible for HIGH TAXES. There is no longer “Taxation without Representation.” This new law enables you to lower taxes. We urge you to take advantage of it. See that the Boards publish the budgets, and make no allowances in excess of them. Please satisfy yourselves as to the necessity and honesty of the expenditure of your money by these Boards, or halt, by a contrary election, the wasteful and extravagant expenditure of your money by them.
