- (b) the amount of the contribution by a police burgh to a county council shall be paid out of the general improvement assessment or such other rate leviable by the town council of the police burgh for the purpose of any Act of Parliament administered by them and payable by owners and occupiers in equal proportions as the council may determine, but shall not be reckoned in any calculation as to the statutory limit of that assessment or rate."
