proposed budget for Great Bend Unified School District 28 was adopted Monday night as published but not without dis- satisfaction expressed by board members and Stafford County residents in the district ing a certain state law The law requires that where two counties are involved in a unified school district and such counties do not have the same ratio of tax assessment the school levy shall be adjusted by the state property valuation de- to equalize the ence in assessment ratios ever the law says when three counties are involved the school district may make the same levy in all three counties within the district boundaries The state property valuation department apparently does not see eye to eye with the Stafford County commission on the ratio of assessments following the county's reappraisal in 1965 state agency lists an average tio of 28 per cent assessment in Barton County but only 18 per cent in Stafford County even though both counties have been PARALLEL If it's not parallel maybe it's double parking Be that as it the dog and a car were seen sharing a parking meter on Main Street day only 21.55 for Barton County exclusive of bond and in- terest Even though the difference inj levy theoretically should raise approximately the same ber of dollars on given parcels of property with variance in assessment ratios the school board agreed to write the state agency and ask for a recheck of the computation and to notify the county clerks involved No Alternative It was the opinion of time unemployment per cent The number of persons employed during July was

could notify the ford and Barton County clerks of any change and this could be made and levies revised cordingly before being applied to in the district Bob Fanshier one of the ford involved said he
