We sug- gested that this might fore- cast the beginning of another round of personal and property tax increases within the county. Since that time we have had a letter and a state- ment from the Tax Commis- sion stating that the "memo" of April 24 to county asses- sors was not an "order" but merely to serve notice that a change of procedure was anticipated... In a memo of May 3 the Tax Commission further states: "Considerable comment and some misunderstanding has been occassioned by a bulletin from the Tax Com- mission to all county asses- sors advising them that it is the Tax Commission's in- tention to require each assessor to have in his office a list of properties assessed showing the full value of those properties as .~'ound by his appraisal by January 1, 1965. If an assessor is using the same ratio of assessment on all properties in his jurisdic- tion he can accomplish this by a mere multiplication of the assessment by a proper factor We are sure that in most counties the assessed value is deter- mined by a division of the full value, as determined by the assessor, by a pre- determined factor to get. the county's~ tax base." "The Commissiofi i( not convinced that the re~u_est is unjust or unwarranted... the Commission feels that each taxpayer is entitled to know what the assessor con- siders the Pull value of his property and further that the same ratio of assess- ment is used on his property BIBLE SCHOOL SET The Daily Vacation Bible School of the Roadside Chapel will begin June 10 at 9 a.m. The school will be for two full weeks, Monday through Friday until noon each day, for children and young people from age four through high school.

The result of this proposed action would cost each taxpay- er from $100 to $300 - plus raising the bonding authority of the district by valuation (the 40 mill limit could double or triple) Korn stated that the legis- lature voted this action down in the last session in a number of bills that came out of the Joint Urban Government Com- mittee of which Representa- tive Garrett from the 47th District was a member. Senate Bill 223, the worst of these Urban Government Bills, was introduced by Senator Dur- ken of the 47th District.
