24. Taxes for general purposes shall not exceed in any
one year One Dollar [$1. 00] and Fifty Cents ($1. 50) on
each One Hundred Dollars ($100. 00) of taxable property
in said Town; to which shall be added a tax in an amount
sufficient for the retirement of the bonds heretofore and
issued and such tax to be fixed, levied and col-
lected in the same manner and on the same tax bills as the
taxes for general purposes are now or may be hereafter
levied and collected in said Town.

34A. Should any property owner fail, within a reason-

cesspools, drains and privies cannot be used again so as
not to affect the public health or welfare, or should any
property owner permit an open excavation to accumulate
rain water and rubbish so as to constitute a public nuisance

but the rate for each year shall be uniform for each class
of property so assessed within the Town. [Said Com-
