The Liberty County Board of Commissioners on Tuesday held its second public hearing concerning a proposed millage-rate increase.
County Chief Financial Officer Kim McGlothlin said that after combing through the county’s budget, she and county Administrator Joey Brown were able to reduce additional general-fund expenditures by nearly $500,000, resulting in a lower millage-rate increase than initially expected.
McGlothlin said that the new proposed millage rates will be 12.63 for Hinesville and 13.84 for all other municipalities and unincorporated county areas.
The new proposed rates reflect an increase of 1.45 mills for Hinesville and 1.26 mills for other municipalities and unincorporated areas.
The final public hearing will be held Tuesday, Dec. 2 at 5 p.m. The commission will hold its regular monthly meeting after the public hearing, at 6 p.m., to adopt the new millage rate.
