P0UCE--- FROM PAGE ONE comddere They have a petition, signed by 3,50 residents of both Harpers Ferry.and Bolivar, which they plan to forward to Senator Robert Byrd's office. The petition states their desire to have equal rightS in police o cer selectioa A meeting was held sevllld weeks by a representative Byrd's off/ca. He met with Nash, former Ferry Mayor William Brawley, and representatives of the media. Others who sought to attend the meeting, including Councilwoman Agatha Murphy, chairman of the Harpers Ferry police cem- mission, were not permitted to attend. Nash said the problem was dimmed but no binding dsclsiova reached. Many are now discussing the possibility that because of the disagreement between Ferry and olivar, the Federal government's $90,000 grant (obtained through the National Park Service with the support of aerator Byrd) could well be in jeopardy. While the police problem was the central part of discussion at the "council meetings, other Ions were taken. In Bolivar, Mayor Paul Courtney and Councilman Rot s't Haply retmmd their saiariss of m00 and re0 to the town treasure', In Harpers Ferry, it was reported that six bids had been recelved on tbe town hall renovation, with the lowest being 0,700. The Ferry council also discussed a proposed increase in water rates, perhaps as much as to 30 per cent according to Mayor Nash. And this prompted Bolivar to observe that it would keep the water rate in,-ease uncier scru y because of the effect It might Horpers Ferry also to make application for a $1 million grant, 4V/ 0,000 in block grant hinds from the state, 12 0,000 in a Fanne Home Administration loan, for improvement of the town's water system; agreed to hold a public hearing on the proposed building of a pew chm-ch; and ordered the town attorney to study a proposal from builder Henry Mc- Mahone for the erection of townbousss. Tlds was tumed down by the town's lflanning c ami lon but is now under reconsideration. 29 Word has been received from Charleston by the Jef- ferson County Taxpayers Association that State Tax Conmdssioner Ned Rose will address a public meeting on Tuesday, June 29, to discuss the recent county property reappraisal by the State Tax Department. JCTA origirMd]y sought a speaker from the Martinshurg fice on this timely subject, and that office recommended inviting the top tax man for the job. Commissioner Rose accepted. He will be in the area for several days in late June to chair a state wide statutorlagy required county commissioner training meeting in Harpers Ferry. Based on the recom- mendation of Comn - ioner Rose, the county assessor and members of the county commission are being asked to participate in the same meetlv g since these county officers are essential to the property assessment and review process. Of the counties in West Virginia, 23 have been reappraL d by the State and a number of tbem have raised oHv ion to the mettmds used. The reappraisal, of course, does not itself increase taxes, it only distributes the tax burden in a different manner. These properties which have changed hands in recent years have already been reassessed by the county assessor, whereas tho not transferred retain their former low sssemme~t. The county comml. -noners have the option of holding the line taxes by adjusting the tax rate downward in The WVFWC adopted as their major project the raising of seed nmey, the interest on which he used as a scholarship to some deserving medical student who would agree to practice in West Virginia in Famil Practace.

The actual system cost is $I,~I~ per pupil, one of the higher in the state. Of this amount comes from the special levy. Cost calstflatiom by the State formula show a cost of $1,247 per pupil, which is one of the lower figures in the state. Fra er stated, and those present seemed to agree, that Jeffer- son County has one of the top school systems in the state. The disposition of the excess levy fund was descrihed by tlm superintendent who made a convincing case for the need for the levy. The property reappraisal would affect the need in a major way, for example, the doubling of the appraisal vaJues would supply school funds equivalent to a 100% excess levy, and in that case no excess levy wmlld be required. However, there ap- pears to be no way to deter- mine when the new assessments will appear on the tax bills.
