Important remark: Polangen, today Palanga, is in Lithuania and not Latvia.
Here is a link to article about Palanga

3/1/2013 2:29 PM He was not necessarily reappointed.
There had been an election for all functions within the community and within the Synagogue.
And this article is a declaration of the "Kurländische Governement" government that they approve the reoccupation of this functions/= the election.

Regarding the "Taxator" I can only add that he obviously did not work as tax collector but only as assessor of the taxes.
The persons under 1 and 2 were appointed with the collection of the taxes.
