4-3 Vote to Lower the Property Tax. For the first time in 10 years, the City's Property tax millage rate was reduced.
Four Council Members, Lenny Zaprowski, Bob Gray, Stephanie Endres & Steve Broadbent voted to reduce the property taxes the equivalent of $1 million.
By calculations, it comes out to $33/year for the average house in Johns Creek.
Councilmen Bob Gray & Lenny Zaprowski were advocating for a $3 million reduction which would equate to $100/year per house. Councilman Broadbent would not support a meaningful reduction, even with the City's yearly surplus.
Council Members Jay Lin, Cori Davenport & Mayor Bodker Voted Against the small reduction and were in FAVOR of increasing taxes.
This comes on the heels of the proposed LARGEST TAX INCREASE EVER, the City Council voted for the TSPLOST IGA to place them on the Ballot.
Council Members Jay Lin, Cori Davenport, Mayor Bodker & Steve Broadbent Voted For the TSPLOST IGA.
Finally, Council Members, Lenny Zaprowski, Bob Gray & Stephanie Endres Voted Against it.
In conclusion, voters will get to decide in November if they want to double their taxes with TSPLOST, and send much of the money to elsewhere in Fulton County.
Thanks. But according to the notice I received, my property tax assessment increased by $1,100 per year.
I guess the consolation is that your property tax assessment increase is not $1133?
