Commissioners Ignore Staff Recommendations, Vote to Keep South Fulton Millage Rate the Same

At their 17 August 2016 meeting, Fulton County Commissioners voted to keep south Fulton's tax rate the same for another year.

This action came after Fulton County Finance Department staff recommended increasing the millage rate for unincorporated south Fulton County from 11.579 to 12.009.

Commissioners ignored the staff recommendations.

Tax revenue from south Fulton pays for services like police, fire, zoning and planning, parks and recreation, environment and community development, and public works.

Property owners across Fulton County may see additional savings on their tax bills this fall.

Commissioners also voted to reduce the General Fund millage rate from 10.5 to 10.45.

“Today's decision to reduce the millage rate is a direct result of the good work of Fulton County's management team," said Vice Chairman Liz Hausmann. “We are moving in the right direction in offering relief for Fulton County taxpayers.”
