Annual Tax Levy Ordinance h Adapted by Galva Council GALVA ~ The Galva City Council adopted an annilal tax levy ordinance of $132,280 at its meeting Tuesday night. A total of $50,680 of that amount is from general corporate revenues and the balance from special taxes.

The amount had been budgeted but not included in the levy as first presented. The levy was approved unanimously. Approval was given for signing of a $3,267 contract with Steerling Codifying Services, an Idaho-based firm, to prepare all city ordinances in updated form and in booklets. The council had studied the project for more* than a year af ter a representative of that company discussed merits of putting the ordinances in book form. Mayor James B. Young said Tuesday night that the latest updating of ordinances was done in 1930. A total d 30 books will be printed x in about eight months. Within a four-month period the council will have opportunity to decide whether it wants to enter an annual agreement at a yeariy coat of $359 for supplemental ordinances after the inttal printing, or a $12.80 a page flat rate.
