Current 2018 Tax Digest and 5-Year History of Levy / Notice of Property Tax Increase

NOTICE OF PROPERTY TAX INCREASE

The Mayor and Council of the City of Cleveland announce the intent to increase the 2018 property taxes by 24.12% (percent) over the rollback millage rate.  The rate increase is to support the growing expenses for public safety.
All concerned citizens are invited to the public hearing on this tax increase to be held at the Cleveland City Hall Annex, 46 South Main Street, Cleveland GA on July 19, 2018 at 9:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. and on July 26, 2018 at 9:00 a.m. The 2018 millage rate will be voted on immediately following the 9:00 a.m. hearing of July 26, 2018. 
The proposed increase will result in a millage rate of 6.00 mills, an increase of 1.166 mills over the rollback rate.  Without this proposed tax increase, the millage rate will be no more than 4.834 mills. 
The proposed tax increase for a home with a fair market value of $100,000 is approximately $40.00.
