Duluth keeps millage rate steady for 2016

The Duluth City Council voted July 13 to maintain the city’s millage rate of 5.991 mills for fiscal year 2016. Cities are required by the state to hold three public hearings when the proposed millage rate exceeds the rollback millage rate. Duluth held the third of these public meetings Monday evening prior to the city council’s vote.

Because of increased property value assessments in Gwinnett, Duluth anticipates a slight increase in collected property tax revenue. Duluth officials estimate homes valued at $200,000 will experience a $10 increase in their property tax bill.

2015 Duluth property tax bills will be mailed out by Sept. 1 and are due Nov 30. Information: 770-476-3434.
