Fulton County property owners may have to pay higher taxes this year after all.
At today's Fulton County Board of Commissioners meeting at the county government center in downtown Atlanta, the board voted 5-2 to advertise a proposed millage rate increase of 10.791 mills. The ad will appear in an Atlanta newspaper Thursday. Commissioners Liz Hausmann and Robb Pitts were opposed to the measure.
The millage rate increase has to be advertised before commissioners can vote on it.
Earlier in the meeting, a proposal to advertise a millage rate increase failed to get a motion, and therefore no vote was taken.
Check back with the Neighbor Newspapers Thursday for more on the meeting.
