Last Year's Deficit Explained.
The city expenses for the year Jut
closed wero f 31,000, and tho tax lay
led last year amounted nt 9 mills (
$'J,2U7. Tho city ran In debt for a.
small sum last year, but It was owlar
to the sower construction, and not for
the reason that tho levy had not been
high enough. As a mattor of fact,
tlui normal expenses of tho city were
some $l,r'00 less than tho lncomo, an
had It not been for tho added ex
penses Incurred a profit would havs
hern noted in the annual reports.
Added Sewer Expenses.
Owing to the sower construcDoi
and connections it will bo necessary
for (lie city to go lo more expense fa
Its street department this year than
liiHt. Many of the places will hav
tie regraded as soon as tho grunt!
settles over the sewer mains, uut
other woik In connection will have to
lie done, so that it will raise the ex
penses of this department. In vlc'
or this fact a strict tax of 2 rnilli
will in all probability bo levied at U
meeting tonight. This Is tho sam
