LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL.
DAIRY AND Food DEPARTMENT,
Lansing, Michigan. Hon. Woodbridge N. Ferris, Governor:
Sir: In accordance with the provisions of the Act creating the Dairy and Food Department, I herewith transmit to you the report of the operations of this Department in detail for the year ending July 1st, 1916.
The annual appropriation for the support of this Department is $35,000, and in addition it derives certain license revenues from creameries, milk dealers, ice cream manufacturers, commission merchants and bottlers of soft drinks. During the past fiscal year over $12,000 was collected from these various sources leaving the Department an available fund for the fiscal year of $47,765.12. During the year there has been expended in operations of the Department $42,864.10, leaving a balance to be covered into the State Treasury at the end of the year of $4,901.02.
The Drug Department receives a yearly appropriation of $6,000. Of this there was expended during the year $5,643.18, leaving a balance to be covered into the State Treasury of $356.82. Combining the two, after running the Department for the fiscal year, there was turned back to the general fund unused appropriations of $5,257.81.
One year ago I reported $9,000 turned back into the State Treasury and this included over $5,000 that was received from licensing stock feeding stuff's in the State. The Legislature of 1915 took this feeding stuffs license away from the Dairy and Food Department and placed it with the Agricultural College. As a result this Department was deprived of $5,000 of revenues. Had I received this my showing would have been much better and exceeded that of last year by over $1,000 in money turned into the State Treasury.
This financial showing I regard as an excellent one when we consider that two years ago the enforcement of the new weights and measures law was placed with this Department and we have done an immense amount of work along this line without any additional appropriation. A full account in detail of the operations of the Weights and Measures Department will be found hereafter in the report of Deputy Commissioner Lincoln whom I placed in charge of the Weights and Measures Division.
