“At a point, a city would like to be independent of the people doing things for them,” Lilburn Mayor Tim Dunn said. “Lilburn has grown up now.”
Dunn said the city would gain control and self sufficiency by taking tax collection into their own hands, regardless of whether Gov. Brian Kemp signs the bill to limit Porter’s ability to charge a commission. Dunn said he expects the city council to agree to the change.
“We know we can do it ourself,” he said.
