Millage Rate/Tax Increase Public Hearing 11:00 am & 6:00 pm

The City of Winterville today announces its intention to increase the property taxes it will levy this year by 7.73 percent.
 
Each year, the board of tax assessors is required to review the assessed value for property tax purposes of taxable property in the city.  When the trend of prices on properties that have recently sold in the city indicate there has been an increase in the fair market value of any specific property, the board of tax assessors is required by law to re-determine the value of such property and increase the assessment.  This is called a reassessment.
 
When the total digest of taxable property is prepared, Georgia Law requires that a rollback millage rate must be computed that will produce the same total revenue on the current year’s new digest that last year’s millage rate would have produced had no reassessments occurred.
 
The budget tentatively adopted by the City of Winterville requires a millage rate higher than the rollback millage rate.  Therefore, before the City of Winterville may finalize the tentative budget and set a final millage rate, Georgia Law requires that three public hearings be held to allow the public an opportunity to express their opinions on this increase.
 
The Regular Meeting will commence immediately following the Public Hearing at 6:30 pm
Charter Amendment Public Hearing 6:30 pm

The City of Winterville, acting by and through the Mayor and City Council of Winterville, desires to amend of the Charter of the City of Winterville pursuant to its authority conferred by the Constitution and the Laws of Georgia.  The purpose of this amendment is to remove the Charter’s restrictions that prevent the Mayor and City Council from granting licenses to sell malt beverages and wine within the City of Winterville.  Therefore, the Mayor and City Council of Winterville propose that Section 25 of the Charter of the City of Winterville be amended to delete the following from Section 25 in its entirety:
 
The Mayor and City Council shall be forever prohibited from granting license in any form to anyone to sell spirituous, vinous, malt or other intoxicating liquors within said City of Winterville, and the said Mayor and City Council shall have right and authority to pass an ordinance prohibiting anyone from keeping any kind of intoxicants for the purpose of illegal sale within the corporate limits of said city.
 
And to substitute the following words in lieu thereof:
The Mayor and City Council shall forever be prohibited from granting licenses or permits in any form to anyone to sell distilled spirits within the City of Winterville.  The Mayor and City Council shall be authorized to grant licenses or permits to persons to sell or manufacture malt beverages or wine within the City of Winterville in accordance with the laws of the State of Georgia and any rules, regulations and ordinances enacted by the City of Winterville.
 
Any portion of that Charter in conflict with this ordinance amending the Charter of the City of Winterville will be repealed upon final adoption of the amending ordinance.
