Fulton County Adopts Reduced 2017 Millage Rate | Print |

The Fulton County Board of Commissioners has reduced its millage rate for the third consecutive year, adopting a 2017 General Fund millage rate of 10.380 mills, reflecting a reduction from the 2016 rate of 10.45 mills.


The 2017 rate is a revenue-neutral millage rollback rate. For most property owners, the Fulton County General Fund portion of their tax bills will stay the same as 2016.
"I am proud that Fulton County has managed to reduce its millage rate for the third year in a row," said Interim Chairman Bob Ellis. "This is evidence of our continued focus on carefully managing spending while continuing to provide quality services to our residents."


The Board also adopted a Bond Fund millage rate of 0.25 mills. The Bond Fund provides continued support of the Library Referendum General Obligation Bonds’ annual debt service requirements, as approved by Fulton County voters in 2008.


The Board also established a millage rate of 4.430 for the Special Services District, for services provided in 2017 prior to incorporation of the city of South Fulton. They also established a rate of 12.160 for the Special Services District fund that continues to provide services for the Fulton Industrial District.
