aside several hundred dollars each
year of the tax money to protect

in insurance companies. As the insurance was ordered, it is said, by
trustees and division boards, instead
of the County Board, it was the opinion of the members of the Board that

the cancellation fees. However, a
committee was named to confer with

the insurance companies to require
the Board to pay the premiums due.
