The county commissioners who As a Board of revision have been hearing appeals during the nine Days past will conclude their sitting today winding up with the manufacturing industries. The triennial assessment this Spring has brought out unusually Large number of appeals the assessment for the first time being made according to full valuation of propert y. The custom heretofore Vogue the Borough was to assess property at one third of its value. This it seems was a questionable procedure not at All accordance with Law. The Borough authorities began to agitate the matter a couple of years ago insisting that property be assessed according to Law. This Spring therefore a departure was made and property was assessed at its full value. It is this which has caused the trouble. There Are Many persons who do not understand the situation and fancy that they Are the victims of injustice. The Board of revision has heard Appeal after Appeal. The Best however that they can do is to see to it that All Are treated equally and that no property is raised to a value beyond what it would bring at a Bona tide Sale. The present assessment raises tin Borough valuation from a trifle Over $800,000 to $2,500,000, which gives the Borough a borrowing Power three limes As great before. The Borough will now be a position to increase its indebtedness and enter upon system of improvements whether it be to sewer the town or establish electric Light plane s wage earners a Small army of nearly three thousand persons.
