Land Tax Is Seen Insufficient for Drainage Finance .


Spanaway Are Principals of Three Colorful Wedding Services Held in Recent Weeks




Financing problems of drainage districts under present land tax support arc outlined for the information of residents of Drainage District 14, by Supervisor Frank Baskett of Midland. Baskett is a candidate for reelection as supervisor, to a two-year term, at the General Spring election, March 8. He states: Recently, two meetings have been held at the Pierce county courthouse, with virtually all drainage supervisors of Pierce county attending. The purpose of the first meeting was to change drainage assessments, making them by valuation instead of land tax. This would bring in more funds to clean roadside ditches. As it now stands, a property owner with two lots and buildings, valued from 8 to 10 thousand dollars, pays approximately 25c tax per year for drainage. Many of the property owners are willing to increase their taxes if proper drainage would be. forthcoming, but under the present rules can only be charged the land tax of 25c, this being partly used to make up and mail the tax statements. Most of the supervisors attending the meetings were from farming areas and were satisfied with the present land tax. It was pointed out by J. L. Krillich that any other form of taxation would come under the 40 mill limit. Krillich also stated that a group of property owners could drain their land by forming a local improveme.nt district, the people benefiting from the L.I.D. paying for the benefits. Under present laws, county commissioners are not allowed to do land drainage or use road funds for this work. Drainage District 14 assesses each fall, a tax to maintain the present drainage ditch, constructed in July, 1920, said Baskett.
