What are the millage rates for the General Fund, Fire Fund and Debt Service Fund?
The Board of Commissioners reduced the millage rate (the measure used to assess property taxes) for 10 consecutive years from 1993 to 2002. The overall millage rate remained the same from 2002 to 2005 at 9.72 mills. The Board of Commissioners reduced the millage rate in 2006.
The General Fund was reduced by .03 mills to 6.82 mills; the Fire Fund was reduced by .09 mills to 2.56 mills; and the rate for the Debt Service Fund remained at .22 mills for a total of 9.60 mills.
In 2011 the Board of Commissioners raised the millage rate temporarily from 9.60 to 11.11 to adjust with the ever declining property tax rates. In 2014 the Board of Commissioners voted to lower the millage rate to 10.91.
