City Officials Discussing
Advisability Of Buying Lot
For Recreational Center
Would Afford Ample Room To
IJuild City Hall. Reasonable
Price On Easy Terms Is
The City Board of Aldermen have
under consideration the advisability
uf purchasing the W. J. Braddock
property which is. being offered the
city at a very reasonable price and
v n'easy terms. The property, if pur.
cha.-ed could be used for the .site of
u city hall, fire department and also
;,,r a small park which would include
t modern swimming pool.
Th,i property is one block off Main
-trcot and faces on Haywood, Miller
..ml Montgomery streets. The lot af
fords a natural spot for a swim
ming pool, and makes it .so one could
be built without much cost for the
excavating. The lot is about 175 feet
The board met and discussed the
matter this week, but have taken no
tlctinite action pending the expres
sions of the taxpayers.
It was pointed out that the pay
ments on the property would be less
than what the town is now paying
The Braddock residence on Main
-trect will soon be moved for Massie
'Furniture Company to begin building'
their funeral homo. It has been sug
gested that the house be moved to
the lot which the city has under con
sideration and used for the present
for .city, hall headquarters. The price
of the property was made to include
the house if so desired, or without it.
Several business men have at times
pointed out that spot as an ideal lo
cation for a small recreational park
in town, and also mentioned the pos
sibilities of making it the central
! cation for air city' buildings.
Although 'no official statement has
been made by the board, it is the
(pinion of many who have discussed
the matter that they will accept the
offer soon, because of the low price
offer made to them, unless there is
objection by the taxpayers of the

Keport (Jives A Halan.ee In Each
Fund As Set Out In Hudtfet
For The Past Year
"Haywood county is in a better
financial condition than it has U'en in
a number of years," T. ,J. Cat hey,
county auditor told The Mountainet.
this week as he handed in a report for
the first ten months of the currein
fiscal yea.- to be published as request
ed in a letter to the editor of thi
paper from F. W. (iudger, of New
Vol k, !:..-( week.
"The statement would have been
made months ago, but. the account
ant was taken ill and until recently
has not been able to continue, with
his work after completing tht ma
jor part of it," Mr. Catbey continued.
The statement, which is published in
detail elesewhere in this paper, shows
that there is a substantial balance in
every fund as set forth in the budget
fov last year. Not a single item will
go beyond the 'amount allotted in the
j budget, according to Mr. Catbey. and
i in most instances th,. balance will '-bo
I several thousand il l.lai .
J The statement is made up a.- of
I May first, there being two moro
months in the present fiscal year, but
all balances are iilor,, than ample to
take care of the expenses during. tho
.next-two months,-it was pointed .out.
tine .of the outstanding items of the
budget is that during the past ten
mouths $12!),;itMl.tl(l has been paid on
tb' If 1 ,7,.l7.:Sf( -'indebtedness-- of the
county also $72,.r)t!:i in interest has
been paid, which made the bonded in
debtedness of the county on .May
first at '$1, if(, t.r0. Two years ago it
was ovc.- SjfJOU. 0(1(1 more than that, a
check up showed. The debt service
.fund in the budget for the year was
lllo.Li'.I.S.'.iri, which was the largest
single fund in th,.. budget.
One interesting item is that on May
liist -there, was due fo the county in
taxes almost as much as the tax levied
in the year l'Joli-Ii-l.
