Estimate Amount to Be
Raised by Tuxation
Next Year
In presenting for tho consideration
of the taxpayers of Harney County
tho Hudgot or eatlinato of tho amount
of money proposed to bo raised hy
taxation for the ensuing your, atten
tion Is called to thu fact that tho
general lax levy for the year of 1921
can not exceed 9233,507.13, or, thu
levy made for samu purpose frr tho
proceeding year, to wit: !220,2S:.75,
plus six pur cont.
Neither tlmo nor effort has been
spared In preparing tho budgot in
order to make it conform both with
tho lottor nnd spirit of tho law. lit
many Instances thu Court regrets
that moro liberal provisions could
not bo made, an well an Itn Inability
to includo therein 14,000.00 for tho
malntalnanco of a public health
nurse asked for by many petitioners,
but considering the mandatory levies
and that tho Indebtedness of tho
County on January 1, 1920 waa 934,
410.60, which, owing to tho high cost
of all commodities, remains approx
imately tho same, redemption or war
rants to bring tho County within tho
96,000.00 limit or voluntary Indebt
edness becomes apparent, and no
rurthor appropriation could, bo pro
vided ror.
Asldo rrom tho budgot ror tho gen
eral rund controlled by tho six per
cent constitutional limitation act
Harnoy County must, in 1921, pay an
additional Stato tax or 950,800.00
on account or Initiative measures
nuch an "Higher Education" "Ore
gon Stato Normal School" "Sold
lors, and Marines Education and
School Fund," voted by tho people
nt thn primary election last May, this
together with a rabbit bounty voted
at trio goneral election in November
(ror which an estimate or 9100,000.
00 may provo nearer correct that
126,000.00 as provided ror In tho
budget) and rollowod by Mnrkot
Road, School, City and othor levies,
will probably mako tho final flgunn
appalling to the taxpayers, but nut
within thu discretion or remedy of
tho County Court.
An earnest luvltnlou Is extended
to every mypuyor In the County by
the present County Court, nnd by
Judge elect. Hughot. to meet with
the Court on Decumhor 31st, fer tho
purpnso of fully discussing thu tax
problems and expenditures, and to
point out to thu County Court any
manner or method who why expenses
can bo reduced.
Very respoctrully,
WM. FARRE, County Judge.
