The Governing Authority of the City of Avondale Estates has tentatively adopted a 2023 millage rate which will require an increase in property taxes by 10.42 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 21 at 5:30 p.m.
- Wednesday, June 28 at 5:30 p.m.
- Thursday, June 29 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.
This tentative increase will result in a millage rate of 9.8 mills, an increase of .925 mills. Without this tentative tax increase, the millage rate will be no more than 8.875 mills. The proposed tax increase for a home with a fair market value of $450,000 is approximately $166.50. The proposed tax increase for non-homestead property with a fair market value of $625,000 is approximately $231.25.
