The City of Dacula will hold a public hearing to discuss a proposed millage rate increase.

City officials have proposed setting the 2012 millage rate at 5.703. Last year's rate was 5.128.

In an email to Dacula Patch, Mayor Jimmy Wilbanks wrote the tax digest has fallen from $124 million in 2011 to $111 million for 2012. The lower tax digest means revenues for the city will likewise be lower unless the millage rate is increased. Without the increase, the city stands to lose nearly $10,000.

"For those whose property values have fallen or been adjusted downward, most will pay about the same or slightly less than in 2011," Wilbanks wrote. "Those whose property values remained the same will see a slight increase."

The hearing will be held at Dacula City Hall, 442 Harbins Road, Dacula.
