Moot of the ratepayers are tax ooinsoicouj. But a few still . feel that taxes should come last. Failure to mm at these demands simply means that money Lmst'be borrowed to meet current expenses and mut unfair is the fact that the man Who pays teites mut also pay interest on borrowed money because of the delinquent ratepayer. And further, our Wnter works pro­gram, in which we pay only 25% of labor costs hinges entirely on the success of oiur tax oeoiLection3.
