Hoa air base 20 mites northwest of Saigon Many Budget Problems Arise Municipal Financing Explained EDITOR'S Tins is another ia ft articles dealing with 3 per cent tax rts effect on By FRED WEISSEL TR Staff Reporter Someone is credited with the bright observation m the early that the Great Depression not have been half as bad if it had not hit the country right in the midst of hard times Which brings us to municipal financing If economic con- ditions favorable all the time city officials would have far fewer budget problems to contend with But economic conditions change Mainly since the cost of living index seems to prefer its ups to its downs the problem of financing the city's many programs and services becomes more difficult all the time A city's money problems are just more complicated versions of the money problems Income remains relatively stable costs go up headaches get worse as time coasts by One way in which a city manager tries to solve the dilemma of operating m the black is to increase efficiency among the s employes Zanesville has tried this and has won some significant ings Its safety program for city employes launched in the early is one example 1961 the safety program has been responsible a gradual reduction in the ate the city has to pay for workmen's compensation from per of payroll to per payroll Savings become ent on a big scale when talking about the total city personnel annual expenditures In 1967 the city's workmen's compensation risk per payroll I it was down to per payroll With a payroll of about that reduction in risk rate meant an approximate savings of HI one year atone to the city To also increase efficiency some services are consolidated and like the computerized water and sewage bins mechanized In the words of City Manager Sam Grey by computerizing its service charge statements the city took a short-term setback in order to receive a higher long-term gain But Grey also points to the logical conclusion that such actions are one-time moves only Once the city converts to the computer for example it has realized its cost redactions at that time You can not convert to a computer again and again and again So gradually the point of most efficiency is reached After that only very minor savings can realized An example here is the water department's use cf a new plastic pipe for making most service connections Development and research on the plastic pipe led the city to favor it over the copper pipe for connections It can be installed aad serves Coit w Pate Sect
