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
