Jenks Schoolcraft To Benefit Under State Tax Boost The four counties in the 107th District can anticipate tax rebates two and one-half times greater on certain lands owned by the state and controlled by the Conservation Department, State Rep. Charles H. Varnum said today. “Under the present system,” Varnum said, “rebates on the lands to Chippewa. Delta. Luce and Schoolcraft counties total $29,137. When the new plan goes into effect, payments in lieu of taxes to these counties will jump to $76,409, an increase of $47,272. The increase will result from passage of a bill equalizing payments on such lands north of Townline 16 with lands south of the line. The bill is on its way to the Governor. Under a 1925 act, which th« bill changes, conservation lands North of Townline 16 yielded only 20 cents per acre each year to local governments. Delta, with 1,809 acres affected got $362 previously and will get $1,500; Schoolcraft with 41,086 acres got $8,220 and will get $20,000; Chippewa with 67,-162 acres got $13,430 and now gets $33,500 and Luce with 35,-625 acres got $7,125 and now get $21,400.
