      Whereas, The county commissioners of Mineral County, sitting as a town board for the town of Hawthorne, prepared, issued and sold such bonds in the sum of thirty thousand ($30,000) dollars, which amount was then deemed a sufficient amount to be sold; and

The taxpayer shall report all such exports and report all such imports (and pay the tax on such imports) monthly, on forms and subject to regulations prescribed by the commission.

      (b) The commission shall make rules and regulations for determining the type and quantity of liquor actually imported and received by the importer and actually used by the importer, so as to relieve the importer from taxation on any shipments lost, stolen or damaged in transit and may require all claims in connect therewith to be sworn to and may make ratable tax adjustments, credits or refunds in the premises to effectuate the purpose of this act.

      It is hereby declared to be the intent of this act that no excise tax shall be imposed on liquor sold to permissible persons as herein defined, and the commission in computing the excise tax to be paid on liquor shall make rules for refunds or credits to be allowed to any importer making a satisfactory showing therefor.

      Section 10.65.  When any special assessment is to be made pro rata upon the lots or premises in any special assessment district, according to frontage or benefits, or area, the city council shall, by ordinance, direct the same to be made by the city assessor, and shall state therein the amount to be assessed, and whether according to the frontage, or benefits, or area and describe or designate the lots and premises, or the locality constituting the district to be assessed; in fixing the amount or sum of money that may be required to pay the costs of any improvement, the city council need not necessarily be governed by the estimates of such improvement provided herein, but the city council may decide upon such other sum, within the limitations described, as they may deem necessary to cover the cost of such improvement. Upon receiving such order and directions the city assessor shall make out an assessment roll, entering and describing all lots, premises, and portions of land to be assessed, with the names of the persons, if known, chargeable with the assessments thereon, and shall levy thereon and against such persons the amount to be assessed in the manner directed by the city council and the provisions of this act applicable to the assessment; provided, in all cases where the ownership thereof is unknown to the assessor he shall, in lieu of the name of the owner, insert the name “Unknown”; provided, also, if by mistake or otherwise any person shall be improperly designated as the owner of any lot or premises, or if the same shall be assessed without the name of the owner, or the name of a person other than the owner, such assessment shall not for any cause be vitiated, but shall in all respects be as valid upon and against such lot, parcel of land, or premises as though assessed in the name of the proper owner, and when the assessment roll shall have been confirmed and recorded, shall be a lien on such lot, parcel of land, improvements, or premises, and shall be collected as in other cases. If the assessment is required to be according to the frontage, the city assessor shall assess each lot or parcel of land and improvements, or such relative portion of the whole amount to be levied as the length of front of such premises fronting upon the improvement bears to the whole frontage of all the lots to be assessed; unless on account of the shape and size of any lot an assessment for a different number of feet would be more equitable; and the frontage of all lots to be assessed shall be deemed to be the aggregate number of feet as determined upon for assessment by the city assessor.

Procedure in case of expense incurred on separate lot or parcel of land

If the assessment is directed to be according to benefits, the city assessor shall assess upon each lot such relative portions of the whole sum to be levied as shall be proportionate to the estimated benefit resulting to such lot from the improvement. If the assessment is directed to be according to area, the city assessor shall assess upon each lot such relative portion of the whole sum to be levied as the area of such lot shall bear to the area of all the land in the district exclusive of public streets, alleys, and highways.

And the provisions of the previous subdivisions, with reference to special assessments generally and the proceedings necessary to be had before making the improvement, shall not apply to the assessments to cover the expense incurred in respect to that class of improvements or services or charges contemplated in this section. When such an account is reported to the city council, the city council shall determine what amount or part of every such expense, if any, shall be charged as a special assessment, and the person, if known, against whom, and the premises upon which, the same shall be levied as a special assessment; and so often as the city council shall deem it expedient they shall require all of the several accounts so reported and determined and the several lots or premises and the persons chargeable therewith, respectively, to be reported by the city clerk to the city assessor for assessment, but shall not be subject to division into installments as provided in section 10.105.

The lien herein created shall be subordinate only to such other liens of third parties as have been placed on record, as required by law, in the county where the feed, pasture, or board, was, or is being furnished.

      Sec. 2.  If such lien be not discharged by payment within thirty (30) days after the mailing, by the person, firm, company, or corporation furnishing the hay, grain, feed, or pasture, or who boarded the animals, of a registered letter to the last-known address of the owner or owners or purported owner or owners of such animals, demanding payment of all moneys due and owing for such feed, pasture, and board, and stating that if payment is not made the lien will be foreclosed by sale, the lien may be foreclosed in the following manner:  A notice shall be posted for a period of ten (10) days in three public and conspicuous places in the county wherein the animals are being fed, pastured, or boarded, and which notice shall also be published in some newspaper of general circulation printed in the county for one issue.

Only such number of animals will be sold as may be necessary to discharge the lien and pay the cost of the publication of notice, plus the sum of five ($5) dollars to be allowed to the person making the sale. No sale shall be made except when the animals to be sold are corralled and have been viewed by the bidders. Any expense incidental to rounding up or bringing the animals to the place of sale shall also be a proper and an additional charge against the owner. The lien holder may be a bidder at such sale.

      Sec. 5.  This act is intended merely to supplement existing law and the remedy herein provided shall not be exclusive; and nothing in this act shall be construed so as to deprive the lien holder from resorting to any other legal remedy now or hereafter available.

      Sec. 6.  No person requesting or consenting to the furnishing of pasture or board, referred to in section 1 of this act, shall be entitled to assert a lien prior to that herein provided for.

      Sec. 7.  This act shall become effective from and after its passage and approval.

Chap. 233–An Act authorizing and directing the state controller and state treasurer to transfer $225,000 from the state postwar reserve fund to the state prison building fund, and other matters properly related thereto.

 

[Approved March 27, 1945]

 

      Whereas, Chapter 125 of the 1941 Statutes of Nevada provided for the construction, equipment, and furnishing of a new building at the Nevada state prison; provided for the issuance of $265,000 in bonds and other matters related thereto; and there is at the present time a balance of $225,000 of such bonds which are authorized by said act but have been unissued; and

      Whereas, Chapter 184 of the 1943 Statutes of Nevada provided for the establishment and maintenance of a state postwar reserve fund, and it is to the best interests of and for the benefit of the people of the State of Nevada to transfer $225,000 from the state postwar reserve fund to the state prison building fund rather than issue bonds and pay interest thereon; now, therefore,

 

The People of the State of Nevada, represented in Senate and

Assembly, do enact as follows:

 

      Section 1.  Notwithstanding the provisions of chapter 125, Statutes of Nevada 1941, relative to the issuance of bonds and the manner of their sale and redemption, the state controller and the state treasurer are authorized and directed to transfer the sum of $225,000, when and as needed, from the state postwar reserve fund to the state prison building fund. The transfer of this sum of $225,000 is to take the place of and is in lieu of the bonds authorized but not issued under the provisions of chapter 125, Statutes of Nevada 1941, and the authority to issue such bonds thereunder is hereby abrogated.

      Sec. 2.  This act shall be effective from and after its passage and approval.

[Approved March 27, 1945]

 

The People of the State of Nevada, represented in Senate and

Assembly, do enact as follows:

 

      Section 1.  Notwithstanding any inconsistent provision of any general, special, or local law, the governing body of any county, city, town, or school district is hereby authorized to establish and maintain a postwar reserve fund to provide funds for paying all or part of the cost of a postwar program of local public improvements and betterments for execution by such governing body, or by any public agency which such governing body is authorized to assist by any other law, including capital acquisitions, replacements, additions, improvements, construction, reconstruction, deferred maintenance, and administrative and other expenses.

      Sec. 2.  The governing body of any such political subdivision may include in the annual budget or estimate of amounts required to meet the public expenses of such subdivision for the ensuing year such sum as it may deem necessary for the uses and purposes of the fund, specifying the particular purpose for which such sum shall be used. Such sum may be included in the annual tax levy or assessment of the political subdivision, within the limits of and as provided by law. The moneys in said fund may be allowed to accumulate from year to year until but not beyond the tax year 1949. Any moneys in said fund at the end of the fiscal year shall not lapse nor shall the same be a surplus available for expenditure for any other purposes than those specified and for which the levies were made. No sum shall be budgeted for a postwar reserve fund by any county or school district which shall have the effect of depriving an incorporated city of the benefit of its maximum statutory tax rate without the consent of the governing board of said city.

      Sec. 3.  The fund established pursuant to this act shall be kept entirely separate and apart from all other funds, and all moneys belonging to the fund may be invested in such securities as are legal for the investment of state funds under chapter 191, 1943 Statutes of Nevada.

Title of act amended

[Assembly Bill No. 161–Messrs. Ryan, Carlson, and Englestead]

 

Chap. 237–An Act to amend an act entitled “An Act to aid the prosecution of the war by providing for the creation of local agencies to cooperate with the federal government in making housing available for persons engaged in war industries and activities, and by granting certain powers to public bodies, and other matters properly relating thereto,” approved March 1, 1943.

 

[Approved March 27, 1945]

 

The People of the State of Nevada, represented in Senate and

Assembly, do enact as follows:

 

      Section 1.  The title of the above-entitled act, being chapter 20 of the Statutes of 1943, is hereby amended to read as follows:

      An act to aid the prosecution of the war and postwar needs by providing for the creation of housing authorities as municipal corporations to cooperate with the federal government in making housing available for persons engaged in war industries and activities, and to assist the federal government in the disposition and best utilization of war housing, and to enable housing authorities to acquire and construct housing projects, and to lease or dispose of such housing to war veterans, tax-supported agencies, and persons of low income, and to issue bonds for such purpose, and by granting certain powers to public bodies, and other matters properly relating thereto.


…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

ê1945 Statutes of Nevada, Page 459 (Chapter 237, AB 161)ê

 

construct housing projects, and to lease or dispose of such housing to war veterans, tax-supported agencies, and persons of low income, and to issue bonds for such purpose, and by granting certain powers to public bodies, and other matters properly relating thereto.

      Sec. 2.  Section 1 of the above-entitled act is hereby amended to read as follows:

      Section 1.  The prosecution of the war requires a great migration of persons to engage in war industries and activities and would be jeopardized unless housing is made available for such persons. An acute shortage of housing for such persons exists or impends in localities in the state. The Congress of the United States of America has enacted legislation and provided funds for the federal government to make housing available for such persons in localities where an acute shortage of housing exists or impends. It is therefore of vital importance that immediate provision be made for the creation of housing authorities to aid and cooperate with the federal government in making such housing available. With the reduction and termination of war activity there will be a reduction of need for housing persons engaged in essential war activities; it is therefore in the public interest to provide for the orderly and effective disposition and best utilization of war housing, and to provide for public postwar housing needs by enabling housing authorities of cities, towns, and counties to cooperate with and assist the federal government in the disposition and best utilization of such war housing by enabling housing authorities to acquire war housing, to provide, construct, reconstruct, and operate housing projects, and to lease or otherwise dispose of such housing to war veterans, tax-supported agencies, and persons of low income. It is hereby determined that the foregoing purposes are public and municipal purposes and of general state concern.

      Sec. 3.  Section 2 of the above-entitled act is hereby amended to read as follows:

      Section 2.  Creation.  Upon the adoption of a resolution by the governing body of a city, town, or county that there exists or impends an acute shortage of housing in such a city, town, or county for persons engaged or to be engaged in war industries or activities, or for war veterans, tax-supported agencies, or persons of low income, there shall hereby be created a public body corporate for municipal purposes which shall be known as the housing authority of such city, town or county and shall be considered a municipal corporation. Upon the adoption of a resolution as aforesaid, the chief executive of the city or town or the governing body of the county, as the case may be, shall thereupon appoint five persons to serve as commissioners of the authority. Three of the commissioners who are first appointed pursuant to this act shall be designated to serve for terms of one, two and three years, respectively, from the date of their appointment, and two shall be designated to serve for terms of four years from the date of their appointment, but thereafter commissioners shall be appointed for a term of office of four years; provided, that nothing in this section shall affect the terms of office of commissioners appointed prior to the effective date of this act; and provided further, that on the expiration of such terms further appointments shall be made pursuant to the provisions of this act.

      Section 15(c).  When the chattel mortgagee, his successor, or assignee, has deposited with the department a copy of the chattel mortgage, as provided in section 15(a) hereof, such deposit constitutes constructive notice of said mortgage and its contents to creditors and subsequent purchasers and encumbrancers, but such mortgaged vehicle shall be subject to a lien as provided in chapter 95 of the Nevada Statutes 1943, page 121.

      Section 15(d).  Upon the deposit of any such chattel mortgage and application for registration, and upon the payment of the fees as provided in this act, the department shall register the mortgagee, his successor or assignee, as legal owner in the manner provided for the registration of motor vehicles under the provisions of this act.

      Section 15(e).  The method provided in this act for giving constructive notice of a chattel mortgage on a vehicle registered hereunder is exclusive, and any such chattel mortgage is excepted from the provisions of sections 987, 988, and 989 N. C. L., as amended.

[Approved March 27, 1945]

 

      Whereas, The history of the town of Genoa in Douglas County, Nevada, is part and parcel of the history of the State of Nevada, and is a heritage shared in by every Nevadan;

      Whereas, The first regular route of travel from California to western Nevada dropped from the towering slopes of the Sierras into the pleasant meadows of Carson valley at what became to be known as the town of Genoa;

      Whereas, The adventurers seeking out the wealth of the territory of Nevada customarily rested here from the toil of the Sierra passage; and

      Whereas, A log cabin and stockade was here erected for the protection of these early travelers and adventurers against the hostile and warring tribes of Indians who resented their passage into the territory of Nevada which said cabin and stockade was known as the Genoa fort and stockade; and

      Whereas, This fort and stockade was destroyed by fire some thirty years ago, thus obliterating one of the earliest Nevada land marks; now, therefore,

 

The People of the State of Nevada, represented in Senate and

Assembly, do enact as follows:

 

      Section 1.  There is hereby appropriated out of the general fund the sum of two thousand five hundred ($2,500) dollars which sum of money shall remain intact in said general fund until immediately following the cessation of all hostilities, at which time the state board of finance shall direct such sum of money to be placed in a special fund to be known as the Genoa fort and stockade fund to be used for the purpose hereinafter mentioned.

      Sec. 2.  Immediately after the sum of twenty-five hundred ($2,500) dollars has been placed in the Genoa fort and stockade fund, the state board of control shall authorize the state planning board to prepare plans and specifications for the rebuilding of the Genoa fort and stockade in the same manner and style as when originally built, shall then ask for bids for the rebuilding of the structure in accordance with such plans and shall enter into contract consistent with public policy as is deemed proper.
