TAX CREDIT AVAILABLE FOR SOME ‘ ‘:<, j : Any resident whose 1977 prop- erty.tax assessment was more than 15% higher than the 1976 one may be eligible for a reduction in taxes, since the State Legislature limited tax increases toi5% per year ….. To see if you qualify: Divide your 1977 assessment by your 1976’one. Any amount over i00 is the percentage of increase. If it is over 15, check your tax bill to see if you have already received tax credit. If you have not, read the front of your tax brochure to find out if youare eligible. The increase~ in assessment over 15% must be on your own residence, made solely on the basis of inflation and not on physical improvement of the property. This tax limitation does not apply to previous years. If you think you qualify, call the number on the front of your tax brochure or 279-1466. (The above news item is re- printed with appreciation from The Echo, the town newspaper of Glen Echo. It is of special in- terest to residents of Cabin John because the tax credit is based on a bill introduced in the legislature by our repre ~ sentative in the House of Dele – gates, Judith C. Toth of 80th Place.) CABIN JOHN- RESIDENT HONORED ~Y FORMER STUDENTS Way back in the early 1930’s, Dr. Errett C. Albritton of Arden Road taught physiology, biochemistry and pharmacology in Thailand (then called Siam). Just recently he was contacted by one of his former students and was presented, on behalf of 120 of these students, with a roundtrip ticket to Bangkok. Dr. Albritton left on Saturday, November 12, for tlwo w@eks in Thaland. % ENVIRONMENT (Cont’d. from-page I) On the landfill situation, :. Citizens Association Environment Committee Chairperson Minda Wetzel reports-that Avenel Farm on Per- simmon Tree Road near the inter- section with Bradley Boulevard is one of the top three or four sites now under consideration for a county refuse disposal area. Nearby residents are very much opposed, and at its October meeting the Cabin John Citizens Association voted to support the West Montgo- mery Citizens Association in opposition to the proposed use. It was argued that instead of dumping trash the County should be putting resources into a recycling plant. POLICE (Cont’d. from page l) normally assigned to this area, but there are always 2 or 3 backup cars ifi needed) and make contact with residents. All information on possible illegal activities is re- corded in the “beat book” which remains in,he patrol car when shifts change. Little bits of in- formation from many different in- dividuals may eventually fit into a pattern which can solve a ~crime. Information telephoned in will also be recorded, and Robert- son and Holland emphasized that you do not have to give your name. Actually the police will accept three kinds of calls — those where you do identify yourself; those where you call yourself a “reluctant complainer” and give you namebut ask that it not be used in following upon the matter; and those where you remain completely anonymous.
