Public Hearing

1.              Public Hearing: Proposed Property Tax Increase -

The Kingsland City Mayor and Council have tentatively proposed a 2017 millage rate which will require an increase in property taxes by 13.94% or 1.04 mills.  The proposed increase includes an additional 1.00 mill to dedicate funds for public safety operations and an additional .04 mills for general fund operations.  This tentative increase will result in a millage rate of 8.50 mills, an increase of 1.04 mills.  Without this tentative tax increase, the millage rate will be no more than 7.46 mills. The proposed tax increase for a home with a fair market value of $100,000 is approximately $41.60 and for a home with a fair market value of $300,000 is approximately $124.80.
