The authority of the viflage to license trailer! Was ruled 1 unconstitutional by Circuit Judge when, in his statement, he said "I find no delegated or Implied authority for a municipality to regulate by license individual trailer coaches." The case win be caned In the fall session, probably in September, and be heard at that time. It was appealed to the Supreme Court which decided to hear the case during the winter. The case by-passed the Appellate Court because of the question of constitutionality. The ordinance passed by the village In effect bans trailer parks and set up license fees ranging from $75 to $150 a year. An amendment to the original ordinance states that two-thirds of the.resldents of a block must agree to have a mobile home on it before It can be placed on the property. • The original ordinance called for an agreement by one-half of the residents of a block to locate a trailer on the property. Hie case went into court when Major G. McGlasson and Joseph Costanzo, owners of mobile homes In Roxana, were dted for non-payment of licensing fees. Roxana claims that mobile, home owners are not paying, their fair share of the tax burden white the mobile home owners claim that the ordinance deprives them of their property without due process of law, is discriminatory, denies equal protection of the law, and its penalty provision is not proportional to the nature of the offense. , The penalty was originally set at a minimum of $5 for each offense.for non-payment of license with each day a separate offense'. It was later raised to $10 a o^y. Maxmram penalty Is $500 an offense. A Telegraph check la the summer ef im related that in some CSWM trailer owners, paying a combination of license fees and personal property tax, were paying more than their home owning udghbors, but the survey also showed that the depredation on trailers to be rapid and that the tax base dropped correspondingly. The Supreme Court wffl not rule directly on the constitutionality of the ordinance, but rather rule if the decision in the Circuit Court Was correct If the decision of the Supreme Court upholds Judge Meyer, it wfll amount to a ruling of unconstitutional Children See Shrine Circus Eighty children from Alton Catholic Children's Borne got to see the Shrine Circus in St. Louis recently, through dona* tions made by the Alton Shrine Club.
