Article 2350, V.C.S., provides in part:
"In counties having the following
assessed valuations, respectively, as
shown by the total assessed valuations
of all properties certified by the county
assessor and approved by the Commissioners'
Court, for county purposes, for the pre-
vious year, from time to time, the County
Commissioners of such counties shall each
receive annual salaries not to exceed the
amounts herein specified, said salaries
to be paid in equal monthly installments,
at least one-half (1/2) and not exceeding
three-fourth (3/4), out of the Road and
Bridge Fund, and the remainder out of the
General Fund of the county; said assessed
valuations and salaries applicable thereto
being as follows:
"$10,000,001 and less than 12,000,000 not
to exceed $2,200.00
"$12,000,001 and less than 20,000,000 not
to exceed $2,500.00
"$20,000,001land less than 30,000,000 not
to exceed $3,000.00" (Emphasis added.)
Since Runnels County had an assessed valua-
tion for the previous year (1950 tax rolls)of $13,-
264,455.00, its county commissioners may receive under
Article 2350 a salary not to exceed $2500.00 during
1951. Article 3912g, V.C.S., authorizes an additional
increase not to exceed 25% of the sum allowed under
the law in 1948. The sum allowed under the law in
1948 to the county commissioners was $2200.00, since
Runnels County had a valuation for the previous year
(1947 tax rolls) of $11,357,184.00. Under Article
3912g the county commissioners could receive an addi-
tional increase not to exceed $550.00, (25% of $2200.-
00). Therefore, the maximum salary that may be paid
the county commissioners of Runnels county in 1951 is
$3050.00 ($2500.00 plus $550.00)
According to your request, Runnels County
will have a tax valuation in 1951 of more than $20,-
000,001 and less than $3Q,000,000.
