In leading up to Arizona's centennial, Feb. 14, 2012, we'll reprint a story or excerpts each day from the Arizona Daily Star or Tucson Citizen archives.

Jan. 4, 1912

Pima County Board of Supervisors counted the money which will be used for running expenses for the county during the current year and the sum totaled $167,423. The money was received from V.S. Griffith, ex-officio tax collector, and turned over to V.S. Griffith, county treasurer. The report of the tax collector showed a delinquency on the tax roll of $17,000.

It was stated that the county road expenditures will be much less this year over last year on account of the fact that last year the county undertook the rebuilding of the worst parts of the Greaterville and Oracle roads. The new state will be obliged to maintain them after construction.
