These tables Are fully indexed on the first Page of this report. It will be seen from the general summary that there was a balance in All funds of the City exclusive of 1\ix collectors accounts with undistributed collections at october 1st. 1933 of $12,981.69. And at the close of january 5th. 1035. There was a net overdraft of $6,135.�7 in these funds showing an expenditure of $19,117.56 More than the receipts for the same period. Financial condition current liabilities past due a statement of the financial condition of the City As of january 7th, 1935. Close of january 5th, 1935 is attached. This statement is the Best that could be compiled under the circumstances. It will be seen that the present administration inherited a Treasury practically empty. The fund accounts of the City showing a net overdraft of $6.135.87. There was on hand undistributed in the tax collector s funds in the Bank $9,072.51, and in the Safe sundry envelopes paper sacks Etc. $582.95, total of $9,-655.46, making a net Cash balance on and of $3.519.59.

Bonded indebtedness of the Board of supervisors of Harrison county Mississippi attached. Payments were regularly made by Harrison county through october 1933, no payments having been made since that Date for the reasons that the Resolution above referred to required that the cancelled Bonds and coupons be $15 300 00 i surrendered to Harrison county As vouchers for the payments by the county when made and inasmuch As the Assumption of these Bonds was not Tak Ltd into consideration in the refunding program of 1934, and refunding Bonds series d were issued bearing different maturities from the Bonds assumed by the county without the consent of the county the first maturities of the refunding Bonds being june 1st, 1939, the county has refused to make further payments. As Harrison county holds approximately $79.000.00 of a refunded Bonds .1,000.00 .1,000.00 $2,000.00 i As of june 1st, 1934, the City is sued $1,641,000.00 of Quot Biloxi mis-1 of the Cutis issues of the City of Sis Sippi refunding Bonds of 1934&Quot to refund All outstanding Bonds of the City and the past due interest thereon. The schedule provided for the refunding of old Bonds with new bearing the same rates of interest the Only advantage accruing to the City being the deferred maturity Date of the new Issue Over the old ones. Honorable Myrant Adams Deputy state tax collector of Gulf port Mississippi. Was employed a fiscal agent of the City to negotiate the refunding of outstanding Bonds. He was to receive for his services 2 per cent commission on the Par value of Bonds refunded and was to pay for the expenses of printing the refunding Bonds court costs and fees of the state Bond attorney validating the Bonds and for the Legal services of honorable b. H. Charles St. Louis Missouri approving. Bond attorney up to january 1st, 1935 see m. B. 15, pages 302 and 303, december 17th. 1984. Or. Adams has made two reports his activities one As of january 1st, 1935, and one dated june 29th 1935 both of which have been audited by me. I have also inventoried the unissued refunding Bonds As of september 30th, 1935, and find that the refunding program is 87 per cent completed. I am attaching sundry schedules covering this matter As Well As summary of the ownership of a refunded Bonds As shown by the report of or. Adams to which you Are respectfully referred. It will be noted that no mention is made in the reports of or. Adams of the fact that in March 1930, har Rison county. Mississippi had assumed $98,900.00 of the general improvement Issue of 1923, agreeing to pay the City $8,600.00 of the Prin filial and interest on the diminishing balances at 5i per cent per annul on october 1st of each year through turkeys it live and dressed Quot buy at save yourself store Ana yourself store prop., j.

Your attention is also called to the fact the it the Issue of Biloxi general improvement Bonds of 1931, bore 5 per cent interest and that series Quot a Quot Biloxi refunding Bonds of 1934, in the amount of $68,000.00 issued to refund said general improvement Bonds of 1931. Bear 6 per cent interest. It seems that this discrepancy was. Known before refunds were effected but nothing was done about it. This will result in a loss to the City of i per cent per. Annul Over the life of the refunding Bonds which loss will amount to $5,210.00. In the report of or. Adams dated june 29th, 1935, at Page is certificate no. 295, he shows exchanges of certain Bonds with the Mississippi Power company. This certificate does not truly reflect the facts As the Mississippi Power company held no bond6 of the City but were the holders of $40, of certificates of indebtedness of the september 1934, Issue bearing 5 per cent interest per annul All due septem a 19th, 1936, $11,000.00 of refunding Bonds of 1934, were exchanged with the Mississippi Power company for $11,000.00 of the certificates of indebtedness this Exchange being in violation of ordinance to. 690, authorizing the Issue of the refunding Bonds of 1934, each Bond of the refunding Issue having been specifically pledged to refund a particular outstanding Bond no provision having been made to refund certificates of indebtedness which were Short term obligations and not authorized nor issued until subsequent to the Date of the refunding Bonds. Certain outstanding Bonds included in the refunding program were retired with Cash some were taken in on taxes without authority of lawetc., thus releasing the particular refunding Bonds pledged to them and these Bonds so released after several intermediate swaps in some instances were finally exchanged with the Mississippi Power company for certificates of indebtedness. As the Bond so exchanged have rates of interest varying from 5j per cent Quot to 6 per cent and the certificates bore Only per cent and some of the inter mediate exchanges were made by exchanging Bonds bearing one rate of interest for Bonds bearing a Lowe rate the City will lose in interest Over the life of the Bonds a Fly $1,000.00. Or. Adams has not been Able to explain All the intermediate transactions. But attached hereto you will find a detailed statement of the exchanges so far As could be ascertained from the records. From the attached schedule of maturities of refunding Bonds of 1934, it will be seen that up to and incl Udine the year 193>s. Approximately $91,500.00 will have to be met each year that in the year 1939 $121,427.50 will mature and from hat year on the maturities by somewhat each year Pink of $140.277.50 in the year 1945 the final maturities being Quot $.80.0,30.00 in he year 1964. The condition of the funded debt of he City at the time the refunding program a became necessary wins brought about to no smal extent by the failure of the City tax collector to observe the integrity of the annual tar Levy for Bonds and interest and the diversion of monies belonging to the Bond and interest fund to other funds. In the year 1930-31 alone $54,661.18 was thus averted. See 1930 Cash Book Page 106. Transfers were also made by warrant from the Bond and sinking fund to other funds without supporting order of the Board of mayor and councilmen the last Transfer being $3.500.00. On it. No. 315, december 24th. 1934, to the general fund and sed to pay salaries and other current expenses. Attached hereto and fully Joy that knew no Bounds not even wheel chairs and plaster casts seized Youthful patients at the warm Springs foundation when president Roosevelt arrived there to spend thanksgiving they Are shown waving their greetings to the president whom they fondly Call Quot the associated press photo indexed you will find sundry tables containing information relative to the refunding Issue of 1934.
