Dougherty County property taxes on the rise

September 8, 2003

Albany- If you live in Dougherty County, your property taxes are going up.

Monday, the school board officially voted to raise the millage rate. Cuts from the state and a decreasing tax digest are taking a toll on the system's general fund.

The system cut 1.6-million from the budget, but some board members say more cuts could be made.

"I think there are other cuts that should be looked at and addressed," Maschke said. "We know for sure there are going to be other expenses during the year that will only deepen the projected deficit."

The millage increase means property taxes on a 100-thousand dollar house will go up 58-dollars a year. At-large member Richard Anson also voted against the tax increase.
