Page Eight Arizona Republic, Phoenix, Tuesday Morning, Feb'f uary 18,' 1941 Telephony 3.j Globe Group Urges Repeal Of Tax Limit Arguments for and against re- Mayor Sullivan asserted the bill peal of the section of the Arizona meant "life or death" to Globe ana peal — code which prescribes a tax limit of $2 per $100 assessed valuation of property in towns incorporated under common council were presented by representatives of towns throughout the state, the Southern Pacific Railroad Company, and tax associations at a hearing before the state senate finance and revenue committee yesterday. .The hearing was interspersed with squabbles between representatives of the City of Globe and the railroad company over a suit in which the company received a judgment of $50,000 against the city for taxes paid under protest. the judgment was upheld by the state supreme court, although delegates from the city said the court had observed the matter was a case for legislative correcting, for legislative correction. Hearing was called for edification of the committee, which had been presented with a bill calling for the repeal of that section, introduced by S. L. Bixby of Gila county. Its introduction was prompted by difficulties in Globe and Miami arising from lowering of assessed valuations of property in those cities. Representatives asserted it was necessary to raise tax rates past the prescribed limit in order to obtain money necessary for operation of the city. "With the limitations prescribed applied to the City of Globe," William A. Sullivan, mayor, asserted, "we couldn't even hire one fireman and one policeman and comply with provisions of the state minimum wage law." He explained that under the present law the city would be required to apply 40 cents of each 52 lor retirement of bonds and 51-60 for general operating expenses, of which 51.20 would go by law to construction and maintenance of streets. "With the 40 cents left out of each dollar," the mayor pointed out to the delegates, "we'd have only S300 left for paying those two men." Contention of thp Globe contingent was that the section, now applying to common council cities, was enacted in 1901, belore statehood, and that since other laws have been passed which by inference repeal the section. Another representative of Globe pointed out. that only one week elapses from the time the city receives its copy of the assessed valuations from the state board of equalization until its budget is to be prepared. Impossible, Solons Told He claimed it is an impossibility lor the city to make an accurate budget in such short time. cited the closing of mines, banks, a department store and a slaughter house as causes for lowering valuation. Union Growth Vividly Shown cie K i- The mayor said the city had steadily decreased the amount of money spent and asserted: "It isn't necessarily the rate of the tax that counts—it's what you have to pay." Alexander B. Baker of Phoenix, representing the railroad company, asserted that the company still has not received reduction in valuation comparable to other property in the municipality and asserted certain taxes had been levied on the firm, after the reduction of valuation, based on the original valuation and at the regular tax rates. 'If the limit is taken away for one city," he said, "all the others will fall in line to reduce valuations and put on a $5 or $6 tax rate. One city won't let all the others et ahead of it." Statistics Presented Mayor Sullivan offered .statistics to refute Baker's claim the railroad had not had proper reduction in valuation, and pointed out that valuation was not up to a city but the board of equalization. "If valuations are going down, gentlemen," he pleaded, "how can we operate under the present limitations?" A representative of the railroad asserted a survey of cities in the state showed only three, other than Slobe and Miami, had exceeded the limit, but James Girand, representing the Arizona Municipal League, produced figures to show 16 cities had done so. Mr. Baker immediately popped up to ask Mr. Girand if his figures included that part of the tax which goes to reduce bond issues. He was told in some instances yes and others no. To Mr. Baker's assertion that tax rates of $5 and $6 exist in Globe, Mayor Sullivan hotly claimed the rates in Globe had never exceeded S5.05, whereupon Mr. Baker retracted his statement, saying the $6 rate applied 1o Miami. Tax Merits Debated Argument at that point revolved about the relative merits of city and county taxation and assessment, with the Phoenix-Maricopa county situation brought to the fore. It was headed by a question by one of the delegates as to what limitation if any, the Globe-Miami faction would favor. Mayor Sullivan replied that the group considered a limitation of 10 per cent of the budget adopted by a city in the year preceding consideration of another budget should apply. Harry M. Fennemore, Phoenix, attorney for the Santa Fe railroad, pointed out that only two cities in the northern part of he state had found it necessary to extend their tax rates beyond the limit, but commented that a genera] law, applicable to the entire state and all j cities, might be needed to solve the i problem. S. A. Spear of the Arizona Tax L ,'Research Association said that would oppose inets all but blocking the marble- floored halls of the million-dollar Pan American Union Building, offer unequivocal ev\dence of pro'.v- ing Western Hemisphere co-operation. Playing a major role in the war- Inspired effort of the 21 republics to build an economic and defensive bulwark against all possible repercussions of the conflict and now concerned with every phase of human activity in the hemisphere, the union has come a long way since 1890 when it was founded as a small time Pan American chamber of commerce under the name of the "International Union of American Republics." Scope Of Work Grows It« sole purpose then was the collection and distribution of commercial information, and the union's small office here then was designated as "The Commercial Bureau of the American Republics." Now the work of the Pan American union ranees from Ihe handling of an international eonlrst for the selection of an "Inter-American Hymn of Peace" to making preparations for the Havana Conference of Foreign Ministers in whie.h the 21 republics set up machinery for taking over and administering foreijjn-owned colonies of European powers in the Americas in the event of a threatened chanpe in ownership of these possessions. The union's staff of 107 experts, clerks and stenographers has lone upon taxes levied in cities under common council.
