Macon Council holds line on property tax rate | Politics | Macon.com

Macon’s property tax rate will stay at 9.7 mills, City Council decided Tuesday.

The council voted 12-0 to keep the current rate through the end of Macon’s existence as an independent city. The new Macon-Bibb County consolidated government will take over in January 2014, but current city and county budgets – including no expected change in tax rates – run through next June.

Councilmen Tom Ellington, Charles Jones and Virgil Watkins were absent when the vote was taken. The tax rate was approved with no further discussion.
