Tho $500,000 road bond issue
which is up for the ratification of
of the voters of Baker County at
tho election June 3rd i3oncof the
utmost Importance to Ihe county.
This is tho first time that the
county has had n comprehensive
road program to pass upon and
one that moans real road building
if Baker takes advantage of it,
The County Court has specifioJ
tho roads upon which this money
will be spent and jt cannot be ex
panded upon tiny other roads.
fhc four roadsjis outlined by the
court, showing the eetimutod cost
of each and the amount which
tho county will expend upon each
aro as follows:
The Old Otogon Trail, which is
part of tho through State High
way, and which runs from North
Powder to tho Malheur County
line, near Old's Ferry, will ,re
(piire an estimated cost of $618,
000, of which tho county would
be required to furnish $200,000;
the Baker-Cornucopia postroad,
estimated cost is 415,000, the
county's share of cost $150,000;
Bakor-Bridgep'irt postroad, esti
mated cos. being $108,000, the
county's part of expense, being
l100,O0Q; BakEliciil Spring
po3troad lo c03r$5",UOU.
The total estimated cost of the
roads is $1,351,000, of which
Baker county should oxpen i
It can readily bo seen that the
State and Government is required
la expend nearly two dollars to
overy one that Baker County will
have to be placed upon the roads
within the county.
Another matter of importance
in this connection is thn fact that
the State Highway Commission
takes over one-half of tho ex
pense of maintaining these roads
after thoy are built, thus releas
ing a considerable sum of money
which the County Court can
spend upon tho othor roads, in the
The bonds are to bo voted upon
JTine 3 and are 20 year bonds, all
or any part of which aroj'edeem
able at the option of the county
in 10 years, with interest n5t to
exceed 5 per cent per annum.
An assessment of one and a half
mills on the present assessed val
uation of the county will retire
these bonds in less than 20 years.
Tho other counties of tho state
are clamoring for aid and nro
willing to spend their monoy in
cooporation with tho Stato and
Government and it is now up to
Bakor County to accept this of
fer or allow the monoy which is
available to go to tho progressive
counties which are ready and wil
ling and anxious to accept tho
cooporation offered by tho State
Highway Commission and tho
Federal Government, Juno 3rd
