The hearings are scheduled for the Council Chambers at City Hall, 2006 Heritage Walk, at 9 a.m. and 6 p.m., Aug. 6, and at 5:45 p.m., Aug. 13. After the third hearing, the City Council will vote on the millage rate.
Why not roll back the millage rate? Milton cited capital projects pushed back a year because of Fulton's delayed 2017 tax digest; Milton's millage rate cap of 4.731 mills; uncertainties created by House Bill 710, which allows a Nov. 6 vote on a new homestead referendum to "substantially eliminate" property tax hikes caused by the spike in tax assessments; and the fact, 2018 final assessment appeal data are not yet available.
