The City of Emerson Council has tentatively adopted a 2017 millage rate which will require an increase in property taxes by .75 percent over the rollback rate.
All concerned citizens are invited to the public hearings on this tax increase to be held at the Emerson City Hall Council Chambers, 700 Highway 293, Emerson, GA 30137 on August 14, 2017 at 10:30am and 6:30pm
Times and places for additional public hearings on this tax increase are at the Emerson City Hall Council Chambers, 700 Highway 293, Emerson, GA 30137 on August 21, 2017 at 6:00pm
The tentative increase will result in a millage rate of 1.872 mills, an increase of .014 mills. Without this tentative tax increase, the millage rate will be no more than 1.858 mills. The proposed tax increase for a home with a fair market value of $100,000 is approximately 0.56¢ and the proposed tax increase for non-homestead property with a fair market value of $250,000 is approximately $1.40.
