Citizens Speak out Against Proposed Tax Increase
Dacula residents take advantage of opportunity to voice concerns over millage rate proposal.
City spending, previous millage rate increases and ongoing economic difficulties were among the concerns cited by the three residents who addressed the Dacula City Council during Thursday night's public hearing on the proposed property tax millage rate (see video for highlights).
The hearing was the second of three that have been scheduled to allow the public the opportunity to provide feedback about the proposed tax increase. The first hearing was held Thursday morning and the third will be held Thursday, July 5 at 6:30 p.m.
Thursday evening’s public hearing was followed by a brief work session in which Mayor Jimmy Wilbanks advised that the vote on an annexation request and the proposed millage rate increase will take place during the July 5 council meeting (see video).
The Dacula City Council meets at Dacula City Hall, 442 Harbins Road, Dacula. The July 5 council meeting is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.
