CHAPTER 17

AN ACT RELATING TO THE COLLECTOR OF DELINQUENT COUNTY TAXES IN NEW CASTLE COUNTY.

WHEREAS, the collection of delinquent taxes in New Castle County is at present handled by a separate office known as the Collector of "Delinquent taxes in New Castle County"; and

WHEREAS, it is desirable that the responsibility for the collection of all taxes be in the same individual; and

WHEREAS, with present modern equipment and practices, the collection of taxes by two separate individuals has become outmoded and the requested change will result in a more efficient procedure; NOW THEREFORE,

Section 2. Chapter 85, Title 9, Delaware Code, is repealed.
