The Coastal Courier reports that The city of Hinesville on Monday announced its intention to increase the property taxes it will levy this year by 3.49 percentage over the rollback millage rate.

Each year, the board of tax assessors is required to review the assessed value for property-tax purposes of taxable property in the county. When the trend of prices on properties that have recently sold in the county indicate there has been an increase in the fair-market value of any specific property, the board of tax assessors is required by law to re-determine the value of such property and adjust the assessment.

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 Hinesville City Council and mayor requires that a millage rate higher than the rollback millage rate. Before the city may finalize the tentative budget and set a millage rate, Georgia law requires three public hearings to be held to allow the public an opportunity to comment on the increase.

There will be public hearings at 11:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. Nov. 7 and at 3 p.m. Nov. 21 at city hall, 115 East M.L. King Jr. Drive.

My guess, your once newly elected Mayor who's house was in foreclosure and now driving a Porsche has a new large bill he needs to pay!

It's time for change in the big house (City Hall).

Hey we supported Billy Kitchens also Jimmy, as my husband was personal friends with Billy's daddy, Robert. After many years in business in Savannah my husband left and moved business to Hinesville because of the dumbing down of city hall complete with mayor's $800.00 dollar lunches at the Rib Hut on the tax payers credit card. After many years of growth in Hinesville under great mayors such as Carl Dykes, Buddy DeLoach, and others the uninformed entitlement voters that pay nothing into the system, did the exact same except it was not $800.00 lunches, except it was foreclosed house, the purchased of a Porsche, and the dumbing down of Hinesville.

Mayor Thomas has never been a part of the private sector.

He has served in the Army and worked for the Corp of Engineers I think.

We have many elected officials in local office who live off of the government and simply don't appear to understand that in order to spend money you have to make it.

I've been told that we even have a city council person in one of our municipalities who is on the dole and is receiving food stamps.

At least part of this tax increase is due to the hefty pay raise Thomas and company voted for themselves during their first term in office.

And I'm confident that the glamorous new city hall and it's increased staffing and maintenance budgets have also had much to do with this increase.

if you want to really see how hinesville tax dollars were wasted go thru the new city hall. most of it is empty. i went thru it 2 weeks ago, it was sickenen how elaborate it is.

I think Ill go to the meeting with some of their budgets and talk to them about how they waste our tax dollars.

Example a 76,000 dollar sign, wait there's too many examples, but maybe we should all go talk to them, its how you change things.
