Only One Item
In County Budget
Overdrawn Last Year
Haywood county finished the cur-
rent A val vcar with a surplus of
$73,137.91, according to a published
statement on page seven of the
third section of today's Issue. The
report was compiled by Charles
H. Metcalfe, county auditor,
The county stayed within the
1949-50 budget on every Item ex
cept one, which was overdrawn by
some $4,495. This item was the
county school current fund.
The outstanding bonded indeb
tedness of Havwood, as of June
30, was $582,800, the report showed.
The county, as of June 30, had
$258,237 In cash on hand. Of this
amount, the $73,137 surplus of last
year, was supplemented by about
$161,000 In prepaid 1950 taxes. Mr.
Metcalfe points out In his report
that $10,729 of this will have to be
refunded, since the early tax rate
was based on the old rate of $1A0,
and since then the rate was chang-
Cd to $1.40.
The difference between the cash
on hand, and prepaid taxes shows
$97,306.96. but from this, comes
two amounts which were not in the .
budget one for $3,824.39 and $19,
384.66 for the special school fund.
By deducting both these Items,
gives the surplus on hand for last
year of over $73,000.
The tax rate for last year was
$1.0217 for general county pur
poses, and 47.83 cents for school
purposes, making a total of $1.50.
The report shows that $48,465.97
remained unpaid on 1949 taxes,
and $17,522.81 on 1948 taxes.
