Press Release Announcing a Proposed Property Tax Increase

Press Release Announcing a Proposed Property Tax Increase

 

Press Release Announcing a Proposed Property Tax Increase

The City of Winterville today announces its intention to increase the property taxes it will levy this year by 5.00 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.

All concerned citizens are invited to the public hearings on this tax increase to be held at the following locations at the indicated times:

All public hearings will be held at the Winterville City Hall, 125 N. Church Street Winterville, Georgia.

Hearing #1 – Tuesday, July 6, 2021 at 5:30 pm

Hearing #2 – Tuesday, July 13, 2021 at 11:00 am

Hearing #3 – Tuesday, July 13, 2020 at 6:30 pm

PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION
Winterville City Hall
Winterville, GA 30683
Regular Meeting
Monday, January 3, 2022 – 5:30 pm

Members Present:
David Watwood, Chair
Shauna Smith
Randy Halstead
Andy Dawson
Collin Field

Regular Meeting
Chairman Watwood called the Meeting to order at 5:30 pm.
Member Dawson moved to approve the minutes of December 6, 2021. The motion was seconded by Member Smith and approved unanimously.

Old Business: Pearls & Petals. Member Dawson moved to approve the change in business type request by Amy Rhodes, Pearls and Petals, Event Venue, as presented. The motion was seconded by Member Halstead and approved unanimously.

New Business:
1. Chairman Watwood introduced Collin Field, who will be officially voted in by Mayor and City Council at their regular scheduled meeting.
2. Laura Bivins, 280 Bentwood Trail. Ms. Bivins was not in attendance, but her neighbors were and voiced their concern over the type of structure being built and the distance from their property line. Ms. Bivins’ permit application had previously been approved pending some corrections. The structure must be at least 15’ off the property line. The Porter’s fence is actually 3 ft. inside their own property line which gives the perception the structure is further off the property line than it is. Code Enforcement will keep up with the situation.
3. Mr. Al Caudle had submitted a complaint to Code Enforcement regarding an immobile truck at 132 Winter Hill Drive. Officer Jack Reddick is working on this issue. He is also concerned about other junk cars parked in the street. This is also a Code Enforcement issue.

Having no further business, the meeting adjourned at 6:00 pm.

Respectfully,
Wendy L. Bond, Recording Secretary

City of Winterville, Georgia
