For School Tax Bill I The mavor. who has just com- pleted 14 years on the City Council, renewed his campaign for a sep- arate school tax bill. "Inasmuch." he said, "as the onus of higher taxes invariably falls upon the' shoulders of the mayor and the City Council, then that portion of the" tax bill, created by another, elected body (School Committee! should be separate and distinct' from all other tax bills and nresent-1 ed to the public as a separate and, distinct bill: and I shall work to that end. To record the separate totals on one bill, as is now done, does not. in my opinion, suffice." Lake street acceptance pro- gram is also drawn fiom his ex- perience on the City Council. "Too lone." he "have residents of unaccepted streets waited and shared the rosts of others, and I now feel ;ha: consideration should be civen to them." The program, he said, doesn't obligate who don't wan; their streets accepted It is de- signed entirely for those streets whose residents have been clam- oring for years for accepiance. However, he adds, those would have to meet naif th" of preparing the streets for ac- ceptance. The street acceptance pian wnuV. cost 512.SOO a plus intern- over a. CO-year period.
