Public hearings on a county tax increase set for June 30

Gainesville, GA --  The Hall County Board of Commissioners has tentatively adopted a millage rate for the countywide General Fund which will require an increase in property taxes by 15.29 percent. All concerned citizens are invited to three public hearings on this tax increase to be held at the following times and locations:

Hearing 2: Thursday, June 30, 2011, at 12 p.m. – Georgia Mountains Center, Gainesville

Hearing 3: Thursday, June 30, 2011 at 6 p.m. - Georgia Mountains Center, Gainesville  

(Adoption of the Budget and Millage Rate will immediately follow this hearing.)

This tentative increase will result in a millage rate of 7.66 mills, an increase of 1.02 mills.  Without this tentative tax increase, the millage rate will be no more than 6.64 mills. The proposed tax increase for a home with a fair market value of $200,000 is approximately $112.80, and the proposed tax increase for non-homestead property with a fair market value of $250,000 is approximately $141.

More information about the proposed budget is available online at www.hallcounty.org/budget.
