The second public hearing is July 24.
The county is proposing to increase its millage rate to the revenue neutral level.”
The county’s total millage rate sits at 9.13 mills, which includes 5.36 for the general fund, 3.129 for the fire district and .641 for the parks bond.
A revenue neutral increase would result in 5.82 for the general fund, 3.39 for the fire fund and .693 for the parks bond.
The rate is considered revenue neutral, because most taxpayers saw their property values decrease by the same percentage as the rate increase.
State revenue rollback calculation allows the county to raise its rate to any point below the revenue neutral rate to not be considered a tax increase.
The Board of Commissioners will review the proposed fiscal outlook for 2013 and the impact on its millage rate during its work session on Tuesday.
The work session will begin immediately after the Resource Recovery Development Authority meets at 3 p.m. at the county administration building.
During its regular meeting at 6 p.m., the commission will also consider a Local Maintenance Improvement Grant (LMIG)
agreement with the Georgia Department of Transportation for phase two of the Commerce Boulevard extension for $4.3 million.
Commissioners will also consider an agreement with Northside Hospital for phase two of the project in the amount of $2.2 million.
The body will also consider a contract with N. J. Wilbanks Contracting Company for construction of phase two of Commerce Boulevard for $7.8 million.
