ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany's property tax rate is going down, and leaders are planning to fix a problem on one Albany road.
On Tuesday, city commissioners approved a millage rate of 9.808.
That's a slight decrease from the rate of 9.853 from the last fiscal year.
Commissioners also voted to block off a road, hoping to solve what leaders describe as the worst illegal dumping problem in Dougherty County.
People dump all sorts of stuff on Silica Drive.
The city will now put up a gate.
The only people allowed through will be people who live on the road and emergency and utility crews.
