The Board of Education of the City of Marietta will hold a special called meeting Tuesday, July 23 at 6 p.m. to lower the school district millage rate (property tax rate) currently at 19.157 mills to 18.682 mills.
The decrease of 0.475 mills will provide City of Marietta taxpayers with a reduction in their property tax from last year.
The FY14 general fund budget adopted by the Board of Education of the City of Marietta does not require a millage rate higher than the rollback millage rate. Georgia law therefore exempts the school board from holding three public hearings before finalizing the millage rate.
A public hearing is scheduled Tuesday, July 23, 2013, at 5:30 p.m. at the Marietta City Schools district administrative offices located at 250 Howard Street, Marietta. The public hearing will precede the 6 p.m. special called meeting where the school board will set the millage rate.
