PRESS RELEASE ANNOUNCING A PROPOSED PROPERTY TAX INCREASE
The Crawford County Board of Education announces its intention to increase the property taxes it will levy this year by 18.52 percentage over the rollback millage rate. Due to the reduction of state school funding, the Board of Education’s Budget requires an increase in local funding.
The Board of Education completed this process in September but inadvertently left off the following wording in the original announcement and is completing the process again to comply with the newer standards for advertising:
This tentative increase will result in a millage rate of 16.00 mills, an increase of 2.5 mills. Without this tentative tax increase, the millage rate will be no more than 13.50 mills. The proposed tax increase for a home with a fair market value of $100,000 is approximately $95.00and the proposed tax increase for non-homestead property with a fair market value of $100,000 is approximately $100.00.
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 digest that last year’s millage rate would have produced had no reassessments occurred.
The budget tentatively adopted by the Crawford County Board of Education requires that a millage rate higher than the rollback millage rate, therefore, before the Crawford County Board of Education may finalize the tentative budget and set a final millage rate, Georgia law requires three public hearings to be held to allow the public an opportunity to express their opinions on the increase.
All concerned citizens are invited to the public hearings on this tax increase to be held at the Board of Education Board room, 190 East Crusselle Street, Roberta, Georgia on October 10, 2013 at 8:00 AM and 7:00 PM and on October 17, 2013 at 7:00 PM

The Office of Planning has initiated the Connect Central Georgia Study to assess safety, mobility, and connectivity across one of the most important transportation links in the state. The 31-County study area, which spans the middle of Georgia from the Alabama border to the South Carolina border, includes four key cities – Columbus, Macon, Warner Robins, and Augusta. The area is home to three military bases (Fort Benning in Columbus, Robins Air Force Base in Warner Robins, and Fort Gordon in Augusta) as well as significant natural and agricultural resources that drive economic development in the state.
