Property taxes won't go up for current fiscal year

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The city of Albany isn't raising property taxes. On Tuesday, city commissioners officially set the millage rate for the fiscal year that just started.
    
City leaders are glad they were able to balance the budget without increasing the burden on property owners.

“I think that was wonderful because so many other things, you know in our cost of living, in our just living day to day living has gone up so many things have gone up,  anytime we can hold the millage rate and live within our means we try to do that,” said Mayor of Albany Dorothy Hubbard.

The city is expected to bring in a little more than 40,000 more dollars in property tax revenue based on a very slight increase in the tax base.
