Lusi sunday two of our prominent citizens property owners were Over heard arguing the question As to How much their taxes would lie increased if installed electricity one of them said he would like to see Smethport have Elk Clr icily but to could t Vole for it because it is going to double my the other said i bad intended to vote for it All the time but As you say if it is going to double my taxes i can t vote for it the. Statement above As regards to doubling taxes is All wrong As the amount of taxes that would be added to one s present taxes will be a very very Small amount in fact so Small that no citizen can afford to let tie quest Ion of taxes interfere with their voting for the electrifying of Smethport. The following is an example of the approximate amount of increase of taxes to a person who ownes property which is appraised at a valuation of on that valuation the per son is now paying taxes approximating ?, and included in that is the main Street paving Bond which is assessed 714 Mills or on ft.50. Of the town is electrified the prob. Abilities Are that the assessment for tiie payment of the electric Bonds wll be approximately 10 Mills therefore on the above ?1000 property the owner thereof would have an extra tax of a year. Now within the next two years All of the paving Bonds will be paid off and then the 7 Mills tax on Pavlag Bonds will cease therefore if you d Edrutt that Mill tax from Tho electric of ten Mills it will property 2% of nulls More or ?s.50 Nibre than he paid this year. In other words As soon As the Road paying Bonds Are paid and the town electrified a tax payer who paid ?50 taxes this year will for die life of the electric Bonds pay a. Year or in other words a year More than he pays now which is 5% added to the amount of taxes be paid this year therefore any one who wishes to know How much additional taxes he will have to pay on account of Ole trifling Smethport. All to has to do is to take of the amount of lie paid this year and the a ill him almost the i . answer.
