A CHAIRMAN'S WIFE; BATTLE OVER ROADS WAXES WARM In executive session, following the public hearing Wednes- day on the budget for 1930-31, the Yolo Supervisors were busy- Thursday completing their own study of the estimate of expendi- tures for the next fiscal year and checking over the costs of county government for 1929-30. Before the meeting with the taxpayers closed late Wednes- day, F. B. Edson, acting chairman during the absence of W. 0. Russell, promised protesting taxpayers that the board would have another public hearing after the supervisors had decided on what contemplated expenditures might be omitted or reduced and be- fore the new rate is levied. Edson stated that he and other members of the board are "staying awake nights trying to figure out how to meet the re- quests of the taxpayers" and he advised the taxpayers themselves get copies of the budget and study _ j. the various items of expenditures and Yolo County Alone in Plan Of Using Gas Tax Proceeds Dmvell Pierce, the Davis man who himself as. a state tax expert, advised the "Demo- enuc lor the counties is not based on the amount of gasoline sold in the different counties or districts. The sum alloted to each county is propor- receipts. These copies may be obtain- ed at the office of Auditor Fred Porter. Chairman Russell, whose unexpect- ed absence Wednesday created consid- erable mirthful comment, fun and criticism among the taxpayers, was at his desk today. Tax Developments Out of the meeting Wednesday came several interesting developments concerning the county's business ad- ministration, including: estimate by Ed Brendel, sta- tistician in the office of Auditor Fred Porter, that between 20 and 23 cents can be lopped off the tax rate, even though the budget were left as it stands, and admission by Brendel that "it is more than likely that there are some other items that can be 1 the rate. At least SI and probably more is to be pared from the supervisorial program calling for an expenditure of for bridges.
