BALL GROUND — Ball Ground’s millage rate will remain at 6 mills, and since the 2013 tax digest fell slightly, residents will pay about 3 percent less in property tax this year, city officials said.
At Thursday’s City Council meeting, Mayor Rick Roberts said the city’s tax digest decreased slightly, but because of frugal spending, the millage rate can be held at 6 mills.
Roberts said although the digest fell this year, it didn’t fall as much as in previous years.
“We’re able to hold the tax rate as it is,” Roberts said. “I’m proud to say this city has weathered the recession much better than we ever really thought we would.”
