Grayson residents won't see increase in ad valorem taxes

GRAYSON — For the fifth straight year, residents of Grayson will not see an increase in their ad valorem taxes.

Following the required two public hearings and advertising, the Grayson City Council voted Monday night to again keep the city’s millage rate at 2.5.

“There will be no increase in taxes,” Mayor Jim Hinkle said.

At its regular meeting, the council also set public hearings on the budget at 6:30 p.m. Aug. 8 and 15 before regular council meetings at 7 p.m. The budget will be available to the public by the first part of August.

In other business, the council:

• Tabled until the Aug. 15 council meeting sign variance requests from Christian Brothers Automotive Center and After the Game because of improper paperwork.

• Heard a report from City Planner Steve Sappington who said the processing work is continuing on a T-Grant from the Georgia Department of Transportation for lighting on Ga. Highway 20 and Rosebud Road.

• Was presented by Jack Britt with new World War I memorabilia display cases, and includes a uniform worn by Robert L. Allen.
