SNELLVILLE — Mayor and Council approved a millage rate of 4.588 mills Monday, a rate which has been the same for six years in a row.
The millage rate vote took place following three public hearings, including two at City Hall Monday.
Helping maintain the millage rate was new tax digest growth of $37,407,834 – just five years ago, it was only $8.86 million.
“City officials continue to look for ways to better manage the growth of the city and the rising cost of services to keep a stable millage rate,” said City Manager Butch Sanders.
“It is a goal of Mayor and Council to keep taxes low and still provide a great quality of life for our residents,” added Mayor Barbara Bender.
The homeowner with a home valued at $200,000 will pay $367.04 in city taxes.
In June, Mayor and Council approved a balanced budget of $13,063,295.
