Council of Baltimore City. A sum equivalent to one-half of
the annual salary shall be paid by the Comptroller for the
State of Maryland from general funds to the several counties
and the City of Baltimore, such payments to be made to the
said counties and Baltimore City quarterly. The several
counties and Baltimore City are hereby directed to levy
annually such sums as may be required to pay the remain-
ing one-half of these salaries.

All Supervisors in office on July 1, 1947, shall be paid the
minimum salaries as herein provided, provided, however, that
the County Commissioners of Anne Arundel County are
directed to levy and pay to the Supervisor of said County
such additional sum as may be necessary to pay such Super-
visor an annual salary of |5,000.

180. Each County Supervisor of Assessments shall, in addi-
tion to his other duties, act as chief assessor in his particular
county, with such additional duties as the State Tax Com-
mission shall determine and designate. On or before January
first, 1944, each of the several Boards of County Commissioners
in this State shall appoint from among the residents of the
respective counties such number of assessors as may be found
necessary to execute a continuing method of assessment which
number shall be fixed by the County Commissioners, after con-
sultation with the State Tax Commission, but if the County
Commissioners shall find that in any County the work can be
performed by the Supervisor alone, then no assessors shall be
appointed; provided, however, that in Harford County the
two assessors in office on June 1, 1943, shall constitute the
first assessors holding positions under the provisions of this
Act, without the necessity of examination or appointment.
No appointment shall be made, however, except in the follow-
ing manner:

The County Commissioners shall submit to the State Tax
Commission from the applicants for each position to be filled,
a list of not less than three applicants for each position. The
State Tax Commission shall interview, examine and grade
said applicants, in order to determine their relative qualifica-
tions for the position or positions to be filled, and shall certify
the list of applicants and their respective grades to the County
Commissioners, who shall appoint an assessor for each posi-
tion from the said list. Upon appointment, each assessor shall
perform his duties under the direction of the Supervisor of
Assessments, and shall hold his position during good behavior,
subject only to removal by the State Tax Commission, after
hearing, for incompetency or other cause. In the event of the
resignation, death or removal of any assessor, the vacancy
