City of Monroe likely to adopt lower millage rate after adopting full rollback rate

The Monroe City Council is expected to vote on a millage rate of 7.060 mills at Tuesday’s City Council meeting, adopting the full rollback rate for a decrease of 0.344 mills less than last year’s rate.

The 2022 net tax digest from Walton County shows an increase of 22.5% therefore an adoption of the millage rate unchanged from last year would result in it qualifying as an increase due to the inflationary gross on reassessments. Walton County staff have there recommended the full rollback rate which still gives the city a prospective increase of $634,000 (16.77 %) over last year’s tax collections.

The vote will be taken at the August 2022 City Council meeting which is scheduled for 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 9, in Council Chambers at City Hall.

The full agenda follows. The public is invited to attend.
