Our History Continues To Be Discovered . . .

posted May 6, 2015, 8:12 AM by Jonathan Carey-Voris   [ updated Jul 5, 2015, 4:32 PM ]

Robert Mayer on East Drive recently found an Animal Tax tag from 1978 when he was digging in his yard.  The text stamped on it reads:

     19  78
ANIMAL TAX
        45
   CRYSTAL
 LAKE PARK

Does anyone remember these tags?  How much was the tax?  Did it apply to all pets?  Was the "45" stamped on this tag a sequential number? (I don't think it could be an address.)

A photo is attached below.

Thanks, Robert.  What other treasures are buried?
