The Marietta Daily Journal – Acworth budget has 3 garbage collection bump

Though taxes won’t be increasing next year, Acworth residents will see a 3 percent increase in garbage collection fees under the city’s proposed fiscal 2014 budget.

Acworth officials are proposing an $11.4 million budget, a 1.6 percent increase from the current budget of $11.2 million.

The first public hearing for the budget, which runs from July 1 through June 30, 2014, will be tonight at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall. It will be followed by a regular meeting of the mayor and Board of Aldermen at 7 p.m.

City Manager Brian Bulthuis said the budget, which includes only the general fund, is projected to be slightly higher than the previous year because the city eliminated some of its debt and anticipates receiving extra money from the recent change in the ad valorem car tax that went into effect March 1.
