The Lilburn City Council adopted the 2015 millage rate on July 6, rolling the rate back from 4.45 to 4.43. The vote was 3-0, with council members Eddie Price, Teresa Czyz, and Tim Dunn present.
The approval follows three public hearings, as required by state law. Though the city's 2015 millage rate is less than the 2014 rate, the city expects to collect 1.3 percent more in property taxes, about $20,874. This is because assessed property values in Gwinnett County have risen as the economy continues to improve.
The Lilburn City Council approved the 2015-2016 fiscal year's budget on June 8. The $12.9-million budget is available to the public online or at City Hall.
