No millage hike for Remerton

July 13, 2007

Remerton - The City of Remerton does not plan to raise their millage rate but property owners could still see a slight increase in their tax bill.

Remerton City Council plans to keep their millage rate for the upcoming tax year at 6.415.

But with a rise in property value, the city estimates the overall digest will increase by about 2.5 percent.  "This year the assessors office has indicated to us that our tax property value will increase by about $538,000 this year," says Remerton City Manager Brian McDougal.

Before passing the millage rate in August, the Council will hold two public hearings July 26th at 9:00 AM and 5:30 PM.
