TOWN OF WYOMING

AN ACT TO AMEND AN ACT ENTITLED "AN ACT CHANGING THE CORPORATE NAME OF 'THE COMMISSIONERS OF WYOMING' TO 'THE TOWN OF WYOMING' AND ESTABLISHING A CHARTER THEREFOR", BEING CHAPTER 189, VOLUME 43, LAWS OF DELAWARE, 1941, AS AMENDED BY CHAPTER 87, VOLUME 47, LAWS OF DELAWARE, 1949, BY INCREASING THE AMOUNT OF MONEY WHICH MAY BE RAISED EACH YEAR IN TAXES.

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Delaware (two-thirds of all Members elected to each House thereof concurring therein):

Section 1. Section 15 of Chapter 189, Volume 43, Laws of Delaware, 1941, as amended, is hereby further amended by striking out all of paragraph 13 of said section and substituting in lieu thereof a new paragraph 13, to read as follows:

13. The limit of the amount to be raised by taxation under this Section shall not exceed the sum of $20,000 in any one year clear of all delinquencies and expenses of collection; provided, however, that the Council of the said Town, whenever authorized by referendum vote duly held and conducted in all respects as provided for in Section 5 of this Act, may raise by taxation any amount above and exceeding the sum of $20,000. At such referendum one set of ballots used shall have written or printed thereon the words "for increased taxation", and another set of ballots shall have written or printed thereon the words "against increased taxation", and both sets of ballots shall specify thereon the amount proposed to be raised. Any sum authorized by referendum to be raised by taxation pursuant to the provisions of this Act shall become and remain the lawful maximum sum to be raised by taxation in any one year until such time as such maximum sum shall be increased, either by another referendum held under the provisions hereof, or by Act of the General Assembly of the State of Delaware.

Approved April 15, 1957.
