No Increase In Taxes, Says Tou Velle
To iho People of Jnekson Ceunty:
To eorreet popular iniHUiulerHtnndiiig, I wihIi to
slate that the road bonds to foe voted upon tomorrow
do not necessarily mean an in taxation.
The present road levy of .'J mills will provide, for
inierest and redemption fund, which total one mill,
and leave for expenditure upon county roads two
mills, a larger sum than is now expended, if the
money now spent on the road to foe improved foy
foond proceeds is excluded.
The passage, of the road foonds will thus enable
fhe county court to improve more roads in outlying
districts than will foe possifole if the foonds are de
feated, as well as provide the beginning of a system
of paved highways.
The $o00,000 bond money will remain in Jackson
county in wages and material. It will encourage tho
building of a cement plant, providing a permanent
payroll and developing a natural resource. It will
add a most desirable improvement, benefit the farmer and open Oregon to profit
able tourist traffic. FRANK L. TOU VJSLLK,
County Judge.
