NorthFulton.com | Fulton commissioners don’t have votes to advertise millage hike

ATLANTA – The Fulton County Board of Commissioners was to consider advertising a millage rate increase of 1.57 mils at the June 4 BOC meeting, but with only four commissioners present, the measure failed to get the four-vote majority it needed.

For various reasons, Chairman John Eaves and Commissioners Liz Hausmann, Joan Garner and Tom Lowe were not present. Commissioner Robb Pitts, who opposed the budget’s tax increase, voted nay to defeat the measure.

The measure was put on hold until the June 18 recess meeting where it likely will find four votes.

The Fulton County fiscal year 2014 $628M general fund budget approved in January was based on this 1.57 millage rate increase.

Johns Creek’s Hausmann voted against the FY 2014 general fund budget in January, and said she will not support the proposed millage rate increase now.
