Fulton County Proposes Rollback for 2013 Millage Rate | Print |

The Fulton County Board of Commissioners has proposed a 2013 General Fund millage rate of 10.211 mills and a Bond Fund millage rate of 0.27 mills.  The proposed South Fulton Tax District millage rate is 12.469 mills, as previously approved in the 2013 Budget adopted in January.


Fulton County’s current General Fund millage rate is 10.281 mills.  The proposed 2013 rate of 10.211 mills represents a revenue-neutral rollback rate.

The staff has also recommended that the Board consider establishing a Hospital Authority Fund, to specifically support operations and debt service with hospital authorities with which the County may contract for provision of healthcare services to its indigent citizens, pursuant to the Hospital Authorities Act.  Currently, the County has committed $50 million for indigent care through its agreement with the Fulton DeKalb Hospital Authority provides services at Grady Hospital.  

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 public is invited to a Public Hearing on Wednesday, July 17, 2013 at 10 a.m. in Assembly Hall of the Fulton County Government Center.  The Board will set the final millage rate at its meeting that day.

Fulton County has taken a variety of measures to reduce expenditures during the recent economic downturn, and has not increased its General Fund millage rate since 1991.
