Rural areas in Colquitt County may see tax increase

Property tax bills could soon go up for some south Georgians.

Colquitt County leaders are considering increasing taxes by 1.5 mils for people in unincorporated parts of the county.

The county administrator says the tax digest is down and the county never really got over the recession. 

"We haven't fully rebooted yet I think we're close but there has not been a sustained level of increase tax digest since 2009," Chas Cannon Colquitt County administrator said. 

County leaders are still negotiating the budget which they must approve by the end of next month
