The council will meet at 7 p.m. Monday at the Chambers at City Center.
City staff recommends the city increase its millage rate from 7.292 to 7.885, which would be considered revenue neutral.
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 city to raise its rate to any point below the revenue neutral rate to be recognized as a revenue tax decrease.
The council is also expected to hear an update on its stormwater utility program, hear a presentation on the Illegal Immigration Reform and Enforcement Act of 2011 and how it impacts the city and an update on the city’s waste water treatment plant.
Other items on the agenda include:
* Recognize the police department’s employee of the quarter;
* Introduce a proclamation for Aug. 25 as Support Our Seniors Day;
* Conduct a public hearing and consider approval of a resolution to transmit the Capital Improvement Element and Short Term Work Program to the state Department of Community Affairs and the Atlanta Regional Commission;
