Null and Void: County to “Redo” Millage Rate

Featured Stories, News

Following a boisterous hearing on an unwanted ordinance Tuesday, the Board of Commissioners voted to pass the 2012 millage rate.However, City Clerk Rita Kirby says the vote was null and void. In an email to FYN today, Kirby explained that the millage rate was advertised incorrectly.

“We had to rerun the five year history so the millage as passed at the last meeting is null and void.”

According to the 2012 Millage Rate Resolution, the County Millage is $5.160; the State of Georgia Millage is $0.200 and The Board of Education rate, $12.900, for a total of $18.260. Kirby said the millage rate will remain the same. She went on to explain that the five year history must be advertised for 14 days prior to the rate’s passage.

The Board of Commissioners has scheduled a called meeting for August 31st at 12.00 noon to ‘redo’ the millage.
