The Governing Authority of the City of Avondale Estates has tentatively adopted a 2022 millage rate which will require an increase in property taxes by 6.57 percent. All concerned citizens are invited to the public hearings on this matter to be held at Avondale Estates City Hall, 21 N. Avondale Plaza, Avondale Estates, GA 30002:
- Wednesday, June 15 at 5:30 p.m.
- Wednesday, June 29 at 5:30 p.m.
- Thursday, June 30 at 6 p.m.
The purpose of the hearings is to allow public input on the level of service desired by residents and businesses, as well as the millage rate necessary to maintain those services. Over the past year, the regional Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Roswell Consumer Price Index has increased by an average of 10.8 percent, so a similar increase in the dollar amount collected from property tax is likely necessary to maintain the same level of service to City residents and businesses in 2022.
This tentative increase will result in a millage rate of 9.8 mills, an increase of 0.604 mills. Without this tentative tax increase, the millage rate will be no more than 9.196 mills. The proposed tax increase for a home with a fair market value of $400,000 is approximately $90.60. The proposed tax increase for non-homestead property with a fair market value of $525,000 is approximately $105.70.
