Mayor Roberts and the Ball Ground City Council will meet in chambers at 7:00 PM Thursday evening. Of the 11 agenda items, the two most significant items to our residents will be the establishment of the annual property tax and fire tax millage rate. The fire tax is proposed at 3.292 the same as last year. This tax rate is simply a pass-thru, collected by the City and remitted to Cherokee County to pay for fire services within the City. The City of Ball Ground operational millage rate is proposed at 4.633, down from 5 last year. Most residents should see a slight reduction in their tax bill based on the 4.633 rate.
