Residents Living Near New MotorSport Park Voice Their Opinions in Town Paper

Residents Living Near New MotorSport Park Voice Their Opinions in Town Paper

A total of four Motions for Summary Judgment were heard in the matter of Hamryka v. the City of Dawsonville.

On November 30, 2010, Senior Judge John Girardeau denied a motion for Interlocutory Injunction that would have halted construction at the site of the new Atlanta Motorsports Park (AMP).

Although the Court conceded the “potential” existed for the park to be a nuisance, the Plaintiffs (West and Helen Hamryka) had not shown enough of a current nuisance to merit an immediate injunction, according to the judge.

My clientele are elitists. They want the best, they deserve the best and they want to be kept in the know about the best of the best! I pride myself on locating and offering just that! Imagine a country club for people who live in the FAST lane! Well, the great thing is you don’t have to imagine…it’s here!

Just once, wouldn’t it be great to open it up on a beautiful stretch of immaculate pavement and see what it can do {“It” is your fast car}? No radar detectors needed, no looking for speed traps or in your rear view mirror. Imagine driving in a safe , controlled environment where the only limits are your driving skills, your nerve, and your car’s capabilities!

Be Aware: New State Tax Law Went into effect Jan. 1

Be Aware: New State Tax Law Went into effect Jan. 1

Hall County, GA--  (submitted by Hall County)

Under Georgia tax law applied in Jan. 2010, property owners may apply for a tax exemption year round (except for the Conservation Use exemption), but only exemptions filed by April 1 will apply to the current year tax statement. There are more new changes effective Jan. 1, 2011 as a result of S.B. 346.

• Property owners have 45 days to file an assessment appeal rather than 30 days.

• Property purchased in 2010 for less value than the county assessment of record will be taxed for 2011 at that lower value; but if the purchase price is higher, the county cannot raise the taxable value. So if you bought a $400,000 house in foreclosure for only $150,000, the county can only tax you for $150,000.

• The county is required to send every taxpayer an assessment notice each year, whether there has been a change in the value or not. The notices go out at the beginning of the summer.
