These petitions ask the county
court to adopt this plan of improve
ment, which it will require several
year» to accomplish, and in order
to provide for an increased tax levy,
which is necvwiary. to submit to the
voters at the next general election,
under the terms of the Bingham tax
limitation law. a prop«»al to increase
the levy for this purpose. Though
voting directly on the increaaed tax
the people of the county will be
voting, directly, as to whether or
not they favor the plan propose«!.
No bonding is contemplated in
this project but the plan is to devel
op the system of paved roads gradu
ally by constructing a portion each
year, building only such an amount
each year as the county can pay for
from its current levy.
The committee has suggested that
the present levies for r»ad an«i
bridge improvement be reduced un
til there is just enough for necessary
repairs. It has estimated that 24
mills could be taken from the prew
ent levies and with an additional
two mills levied, the money realised
from a 44 mill levy would lie suffi
cient each year to develop a system
of (Hived roads.
