Our reasons for making this recommendation are that these
are balances due from the City which bear interest at the
rate of 10% per annum and the City has idle funds
in the Treasury. By calling these warrants in the City
will save paying interest. Some of the warrants are
outstanding since 1876, and seem to be balances incurred over
and above taxes is collected although there are no delinquent
taxes on these funds. We would also ask until next
regular meeting to complete the report on funds on hand
in the Treasury". Report adopted and the Clerk author-
ized to draw warrants on the City fund in favor of the above
named funds and in the amounts specified to balance and
close said funds.
