STATE DEPARTMENT OF AUDIT W. Hampt6n King, C.I.A. SCare Adior COMMENTS OF STATE AUDITOR ON WIL. CO. (Continued from' Page 4! cial support fund of ,the Missis- sippi Highway Safety Patrol, consists of property taxes, of which a small portion, usually about 15% goes into road funds, most of it going to support pub- lic shools and the gene, ral ccunty government. These two types of taxes are collected by the county tax collectox and, except for a 2-mill property sent by that office to the State Treasury, re retained in Wil- kinson County. Larger truck and bus tags are issued by the State Motor Ve- hicle Comptroller, although they may be routed to him through the ounty tax collector. The greater part of these privilege taxes are returned o county governments of the state, being divided .among them on the three bases of rea, population and number of such vehicles registered, in the proportion each county has of ,the totals of each of these items in the state as a whole. A smaller por- tion of the revenue from these privilege licenses is used to pay for state highway construction or reconstruction or for redemp- tion of bonds issued for these purposes and interest thereon. and a still smaller prtion is used to help pay the operating costs of the Motor Vehicle Comptroller's office and state- wide organization. The total amount to ,be divided among the counties of the state has been fixed by a legislative act of 1972, which was part of the state highway financing pro- g, ram of that year, .and the amount coming to each county government after 1972 wil 1 change only when the County's proportionate share of the pop- ulation and vehicles changes. Currently, between 5% and 7% of the road and bridge revenue in Wilkinson County comes from this source. A sha,e of the state tax on motor fuels also goes to coun- ties, every county receiving at least $190,000 ech year, wlth counties having lrger area and population receiving ,a greater part of the balance left in the counties' share than do counties of smaller area and population. There is not a great deal of variation among the counties in -the dol}ars received .fxom this source, however. In Wilknson County, this source supplies from 49% to 55% of the xoad and bridge revenue. Another major state govern- men`t contxibution to county road funds is the reimburse- ment to the county of tax losses suffered as a result of home- steads being exempt from prop- erty taxes for road and bridge purposes. This is paid out of an appropriation made each year out of the state's general fund by the legislature. Due to certain penalty provisions in the statutes, intended to promote better fi- nancial managemen by county government, very .few counties, if any, receive full ,reimburse- ment for tax losses resulting from homestead exemptions. This money .comes chiefly from sales and .use and income taxes collected by the state but also in part from a number of other types of taxes or other sotrces such as excise taxes on obacco products, beer and wine, strong- er alcoholic beverages, and In- surance .premiums, eorparation franchise taxes, inheritance taxes, and several other taxes yielding smaller amounts of revenue, as well as from inter- est earned on time depostts and profits ,o1 wholesale sales o the stronger alcoltolic beverages. In Wilkinson County, this payment from the state's general fund supplies from 1% to 2% of he road revenues. Another source of money used :by ome ,boards of supervisors for road pu, rposes is part of the county share of severance axes collected by the state govern- nent .on oil and gas produced or timber, hmrvested in the county. In Wilkinson County, this accounted in 1970 and 19'/1 for 13% to 18% of the road und revenues. County Expenditure Of Road And Bridge Funds The Federal Bureau of Public ROad, now a part of the De- artment of TransImrtatlon, collects eaoh year a great va- riety 0f statistical information from the state highway depart- ments of the .fifty states and tries to compile i% into" tables whiv2 m, ake some comparisons readily possibl, altttou, gh the Burea .wrns against laing too much reliance on the use |of comparative figures reported I by .different people or a hum- /bet of different purposes. / lrom hese statistics, however, I it" can be eadlly a.werbained Poae 5 loads by counties and townships are high in comparison with those of most other states. In 1970, the latest year for which we have those statistics, Missis- sippi :ranked 19th in `the nation in the total amount spent for these purposes and 5th among 12 Southeastern and South Cen- tral states stretching from Lou- isiana and Arkansas to Virginia. Only six states spent more per registered vehicle on such roads; nine spent more in pro- portion to ,their population: nineteen spent more per surface HONOR ROLL TOLD FOR FINCH SCHOOL The following 35 students made the Honor Roll for the.

Kathy Gaines, Diana to form an opinion as to how well they are maintained in proportion to the money spent on them than anyone visiting them only occasionally or sit- ting in an .office in the capital city or in an office on a univer- sity or college campus. Wilkinson County spent fom its road and bridge funds an average of $394,878 during he six year period from 1964 through 1969, according to Mr. Coxkran's study of .the informa- tion he obtained from .the fi- nancial statements prepared from county records by the State Department of Audit dur- ing th,Gse years. $3,583 of this amount represented a duplica- tion. money repaying notes, the p,roceeds of which had been used to buy .equipment which had been included in thc ex- pendtures of an earlier year. If one borrowed from a bank to buy a car and counted both the purchase price of the car and the repayment of he principal amount of the notes as ex- penses, he would be overstating the amount he spent, and this fact was overlooked in Mr. Corkern's study. For a single year's costs, these note pay- ments are part of the expendi- tures, but over the life of the purchase and repayment, the cost would be overs`tared if both equipment purchases and equip- ment note payments are in- cluded. In fiscal 1970, total road and bridge fund expenditures in Wilkinson County totalled $470,- 906. including $33,581 paid for new equipment, $'/,835 for equip- ment rental or lease and $78.545 for notes .issued earlier to se- cure cash for equipment pur- chases at that time. In fiscal 1971, the amount actually ex- pended was $516,819. including new equipment ,costing $4.754. Xrental and lease of equipment for $21,940. and payment of notes in the amount of $52,722, issued earlier for the purpose of berrowing to buY equipment at that time. For each mile of rural road, the average amount spent by the county was approx- imately $1,130 in 1970 and $1,240 In 1971, as compared with the nation-vide average in 1970 of about $795 per mile. Other County Governmental Functions Although noney expended from road and bridge funds al- ways makes up ,a substantial part of the money expended under .the direct control of the county board of supervisors in ,every county in Missisippi, many other vital county func- tions .are also budgeted and fi- nancially controlled by the board. Most of the property ,taxes paid by property owners of the county other than those paid for public school operations are used .for these purposes rather than for ,roads and bridges. In the 1970 fiscal year Wilkinson County property own- ers financed these varied county functions with $126,806. in round figures, and in 1971 the amount Increased to $158,847. Perhaps the best measure of the money costs of county government is the per .capi'ta cost, but he truest measure is the service rendered to the citizens which is difficult to quantify and can probably judged by those citizens themselves, although sme comparative dollar costs i may help.

We will forever be grateful to each of you. The Gaines Family. The pex capita cost of certain categories of expenditures au- thorized by the loard of super- visors of Wilkinson County in 1970 and in 1971, in comparison with the average per capita cost of these categories in all counties combined in 1970. is shown on the schedule at he end of these comments. Some counties at- tempt to expand services to cit- izens from time to time anct costs necessa,rily rise. Other counties .have chosen to keep governmental costs down by providing only such services as are required by statute or by overwhelming public demand.
