Theiti^jFipl^rJIiand pity'assessor will, be aslced to prepare a list of such prop-'drty. as soon as the scheme is decided on, showing the sale price. Copies of this will be,forwarded to all licensed real estate agents in tho clly with the information that five per cent, commission will be paid on any sales made. _ ' i The te'rms, as at present proposed, will be a minimum of an amount equal to the 1919 taxes, plus eight per cent, interest on all consolidated arrears,' plus tax sale expenses, plus cost of; obtaining, title, plu.s the real . estate .agent's commission, and the balaaca payable in nine equal annual iastal-inpnts. It Is further understood .that the city may, sell direct at the samei IH-ice and,on the same terms as thoj' agent's list shows. The plan is only a' tentative one and no deflnlte action has so far been' 'taken beyond the consideration of the s|imo. The proposal is cbusidered nee--essary in that it is regarded as desirable that tbe property named should *Le disposed of to individual owners so th^t l(.m4y-^gain^become tax producing. The property, as at present deter-miuedi will not be offered for salo at a lower rate than the assessed value, as this might have the effect of fdr a time so reducing values that the assessment might temporarily be jedp-ardized and owners suffer in consequence.
