TUCKER, Ga. (June 14, 2018) – The City of Tucker is standing by its commitment to responsible spending, as City leadership is set to approve a zero-millage rate for the upcoming budget year.
In April, the Mayor and City Council unanimously endorsed a $12.8 million budget for Fiscal Year 2019. The plan will fund several key initiatives including growth in the Parks and Recreation Department, highly-anticipated SPLOST improvement projects, as well as additional staffing needed in the growing City.
“This budget is a reflection of the Council’s continued fiscal responsibility,” explains City Manager Tami Hanlin. “It has been their stated priority to fund the growth of the City without placing additional burden on Tucker residents. This balanced budget will help us to provide an even better level of service for the people of this community.”
The Mayor and Council will formally vote to approve the zero-millage rate at their meeting on June 27. That meeting will also see public hearings and anticipated votes on three land use cases.
