The rate will stay steady at 3.573 mills.
A homeowner with a $200,000 house and a standard $5,000 exemption would have a $268 city tax bill, the same as last year.
If that homeowner's property declined in value by the Cherokee County average of about 8.35 percent, the homeowner will receive a $244 tax bill next month.
Also on Monday, the council addressed the possibility of a big change to the city's major intersection.
The Georgia Department of Transportation has proposed turning the four-way stop at Reinhardt College Parkway/Highway 140 and Highway 108/Fincher Road into a roundabout.
The council agreed to send a letter to the GDOT asking for a representative to attend a council meeting to provide more information about the project and answer questions.
The council on Monday also considered the following agenda items:
* Set the date for its Fall Clean-Up Day as Oct. 9;
* Reviewed a draft of the city's ethics committee bylaws; and
* Approved a 2000 Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax note modification.
