Case-in-point: Due to the slow growth in the housing market, property taxes are anticipated to be lower than the current fiscal year’s collections.
“We had a lot of appeals [to property values] with Fulton County, so we are trying to project as conservatively as possible,” said Karen Ellis, the city’s finance director.
The tax digest will be made available next week, she said.
Ellis was among several department heads to appear before the Sandy Springs City Council Tuesday at City Hall as part of the first in a series of workshops to hammer out the upcoming budget.
Officials anticipate holding a final hearing and adopting the city’s fiscal 2014 budget June 18.
