Millage rate expected to be cut

LAWRENCEVILLE - Gwinnett County commissioners are expected to roll back the millage rate Tuesday.

The move is typical for the commission, which has voted for more than a decade to lower the tax rate based on the rise in property values.

This year, officials recommended to commissioners that the millage rate be rolled back to a rate of 11.30, compared to the 2005 rate of 11.47.

A homeowner with a $200,000 house would save $12 if the rate is adopted.
