Snellville to hold public hearing on 2018 millage rate increase

Snellville has tentatively adopted a 2018 millage rate which will require a 6.85 percent increase in property taxes. Concerned citizens are invited to a public hearing on this tax increase at 11:30 a.m. June 28 at Snellville City Hall, 2342 Oak Road. Additional public hearings will be held at 6 p.m. June 28 and 7:30 p.m. July 9 at City Hall.

This tentative increase will result in a millage rate of 4.588 mills, an increase of 0.294 mills over the rollback rate, but no actual millage rate increase from last year. Without this tentative tax increase, the millage rate would be no more than the rollback rate of 4.294 mills.

The proposed tax increase for a home with fair market value of $200,000 is approximately $23.52 and the proposed tax increase for non-homestead (commercial) property with a fair market value of $550,000 is approximately $64.68.
