Public Hearing
FY2020 Tax Millage Hearing


Mayor and Council adopted the City Budget on final reading, June 18, 2019. The adopted Budget for FY 2019-20 is based on a recommended rate of 16.11 mills, unchanged from 2018. This rate has been advertised as required and is ready for adoption by Council. This is the second of three (3) hearings for that purpose. Three hearings are required by the state, due to the increase in Hapeville property tax assessments. As has been well documented, the Fulton County Tax Commissioner has gained approvals for 2017 and 2018 property digests. At this point in time staff projects that the General Fund millage of 16.11 Mills will generate approximately $4.86M in billable Real Property Taxes. The City Budgeted $4.30M in Real Property taxes.

Mayor and Council Comments

Public involvement and citizen engagement is welcome as Hapeville operates a very open, accessible and transparent government. We do however remind our attendees/residents that there are times allocated for public comments on the agenda. In order for council to conduct their necessary business at each meeting, we respectfully ask that side-bar conversations and comments be reserved for the appropriate time during the meeting. This will allow the City Council to conduct the business at hand and afford our meeting attendees ample time for comments at the appropriate time during the meeting.
