are not economically handled by
lesser units of government.
The danger of political bureau-
cracy in any too centralized form of
administration is apparent. Direct
accounting of administrations to
and personal contact of adminis-
trations with the people is a con-
tenmplated check and balance in our
government and should be preserv-
ed.
Co-operation Sought.
3. Voluntary co - operation be-
tween all road building organiza-
tions is recommended and it must
be founded on mutual respect.
4. All the taxes paid on motor
fuels and for, the registration of
motor vehicles are necessary for
use in the maintenance and con-
struction of highways, and they
should be used exclusively for that
purpose and apportioned in an
equitable manner for the develop-
-ment of all highways. Apportion-
ment of these monies should be in
general accord with the recommen-
dations of the report "Administra-
tive and Financial Relationship of
State and County."
The motor vehicle and gasoline
tax is the nearest practicable means
of collecting a metered charge for
the use of the roads; to use this
money for any other purpose than
highways is a breach of faith with
the people.
Therefore, Pursuant to- the be-
liefs set forth above and in con-
formity with the reports discussed
and\%adopted, we propose for ten-
tative adoption the following poli-
cies to be observed by county high-
Way officials:
- 1. To use all reasnablp en-
deavor to cooperate with other
road building units and particu-
larly our state highway depart-
ments, but not to the extent of
being servile.
2. To do all work with the ob-
jective of accomplishing some
definitely adopted plan.
3. To anticipate the adoption
of uniform accounting for state
and counties, and to conform as
near as practicable with the out-

I

I

line for uniform accounting set
forth in the re'bort on this sub-
ject presented at this meeting
until a final acounting system is
approved.
Standard Contract.
4. To adopt so far as practic-
able the standard form of con-
tract and specifications used by
the state in which we are resi-
dent, and to have all divergen-
cies of construction clearly shown
upon the plaus and specified
forms for the work.
5. To use in general the pro-
gressive or stage type of develop-
ment for the highways under our
jurisdiction.
6. To use low cost types of im-
provement where they are ade-
quate to the traffic needs.
This should not excuse sloven-,
ly, inadequate, and therefore un-
economic work. It often takes
vnore skill to supply adequate
service at a low cost than to build
the more spectacular type of
standard construction.
7. To arrange before any bond
issue is promoted or approved for
highway construction that such
promotion be preceded by an in-
vestigation of the ability of the
county to pay the bonds'; of the
need of the county for the roads;
of the locations of the roads; and
as to whether the plan is econ-
omically sound and adequately
conceived.
''echnical, lay, legal and finan-
cdial opinion should be consulted,
Any community contemplating a
bond issue should obtain a copy
of the report "Methods of Pro-
moting Bond Issides."
8. To make all purchase of
machinery and equipment in ac-
cord with good business prac-
tices and in general to comply
with the conclusions and recom-
mendations set forth in the re--

* * ,
port on "Purchasing EA
Practices."
