It was apparent to the Board after having ma- turely considered the town's budget that there would be a necessity to secure more revenues than have been pre- viously collected by the town. The Mayor and Board is of the opinion that these revenues can only be gotten from one of two sources. These two sources being the now pro- posed sales tax ordinance or an increase of property as- sessments. The Board now has a 15 mill general levy which is the maximum provided by statute. Therefore, the millage cannot be raised and the assessments would have to be raised to meet the necessary demands for monies. The Mayor and Board of Aldermen believe that it would be much better to raise the necessary monies to operate the town by a sales tax ordinance of one-half percent. This method would be the best because it would effect each and every person purchasing goods in the Town of Wiggins. Otherwise, if the Board has to raise assessments to pro- vide the additional money it would be paid by the pro- perty owners only. This would mean about 25 per cent in- crease in assessments within the town. The Mayor and Board are aware of the poor condition of the streets and have proposed in their new budget addi- tional monies to repair and maintain the streets in much better condition. The Board anticipates, if the revenues can be raised by the above mentioned sales tax, that it will give them sufficient money to extend the streets nd extend the water system and to install new lines in the water system so as to give the people within the town limits the wter pressure required for their use, When the Board declaed its intention to pass the sales tax resolu- tion they had in mind that the revenues would be used for the streets, water system and for extensions of side walks 'and cleaning up the town so as to improve its appearance. The Mayor and Board are aware that the people of the Town of Wiggins want to progress and have a better town but this cannot be accomplished without money to make the above mentioned improvements, this proposition is not new but has been facing the Town of Wiggins for several years.

He has been sta- tioned at Mass. and is with the Agency. life of Colonel John Bond has been collected, a monument has been placed at his grave four miles 'outhwest of McHenry and a his- torical marker set up on highway 49. In 1898 the late George Walker of McHenry pubIished the "Bond Family Tree" containing the names of all the descendants of that time. An effort is now being made to list all the present descendants. There were six children, five sons and one daughter, who with their child- ren, grandchildren and great grand- children formed the branches of the "tree." The oldest son, FALsha Bond, born 1796, will be taken up in this article, to be followed by articles concerning the descendants of the other five children. The children of Elisha Bond were John, 1819; Thomas, 1882; Chborn, 1824; James, 1829; Nathan, 1832; Nellie, 1834; Marian, 18;]7; Deca]b, 1839. Nellie, the daughter, married Abb Hatten in i34. Other pioneer marrying granddaughters and great granddaughters of Elisha Bond are: Bilbo, Breland, Broad, O2Neal, Cochran, King, Maples, Ro- ]aerts, Smith and White. If you bear one of these names, you may or may not be a Bond descendant, but older people of your community can probably tell you if you are. Short articles in the future will list names in the family oi the five other children of Colonel Bond. Look for these articles and if you are not sure of your relationship, come to the Bond Reunion find You be glad did!

In 1898 the late George Walker of McHenry pubIished the "Bond Family Tree" containing the names of all the descendants of that time. An effort is now being made to list all the present descendants. There were six children, five sons and one daughter, who with their child- ren, grandchildren and great grand- children formed the branches of the "tree." The oldest son, FALsha Bond, born 1796, will be taken up in this article, to be followed by articles concerning the descendants of the other five children. The children of Elisha Bond were John, 1819; Thomas, 1882; Chborn, 1824; James, 1829; Nathan, 1832; Nellie, 1834; Marian, 18;]7; Deca]b, 1839. Nellie, the daughter, married Abb Hatten in i34. Other pioneer marrying granddaughters and great granddaughters of Elisha Bond are: Bilbo, Breland, Broad, O2Neal, Cochran, King, Maples, Ro- ]aerts, Smith and White. If you bear one of these names, you may or may not be a Bond descendant, but older people of your community can probably tell you if you are. Short articles in the future will list names in the family oi the five other children of Colonel Bond. Look for these articles and if you are not sure of your relationship, come to the Bond Reunion find You be glad did!
