Straube last week told visiting Gov. Richard Ogilvic that he would ask the city council to eliminate the tax levy for the general fund and three other city funds because rebates of stale income taxes had made it possible to cut local taxes on real and personal property. The deadline for action by the council is Tuesday. The proposal, however, nit its first snag last night when Straube offered the tax levy ordinance for reading. "Why didn't we have previous meetings on 'his before it pot to the floor, it's .supposed tn come out of the ordinance committee and we haven't seen it before or met on it," Alderman John Merkel a member of the ordinance committee, demanded. When Merkel said that "things like this" always setm to pop out of the air during an election year, Straube's answer was also an announcement that he was not going to run for re-elec'ion "Well, for your information, "Straube said" I've discussed this matter with my wife and family and with responsible city officials, and I will net be a candidate for mayor we* April. I do think that the people who have paid 'he t;.x should profit by it ... I believe it's the economically sensible thing to do." Straube, who had prefaced submission of the proposal by explaining that the proposed tax cuts would represent about a 50 per cent reduction In the city tax levy, hal explained that accumulate funds in the general fund, the street and bridge fund and both the police and tire protection funds had reached a level where further accumulation jpuld be Ultgal.
