Rome City Commission meets Monday

July 21, 2019–12:40 a.m.


The Rome City Commission will hold the third and final public hearing on the proposed 2019 millage rate when it meets Monday night.

The proposed combined millage rates for the City Government and City Schools of 27.536 will result in no increase of millage rates from the prior year but will be 1.19% over the calculated rollback rate of 27.207.

The estimated City and City school tax for a current $100,000 market valued home would have been $1,101 in 2016, would be estimated at $1,101 for 2017 and at the 2017 rollback rate would be estimated at $1,088.

The commission is expected to approve the millage rate following the public hearing.

Also during Monday’s meeting, the commission will hear from Eric McDowell with the Summerville Park Neighborhood Association.

The association is fighting plans for an 81-room hotel on Martha Berry Boulevard near the neighborhood.

Commissioners will also hear an audit report from Mauldin and Jenkins and read a proclamation recognizing the 90th Birthday of the Historic DeSoto Theatre.

Monday’s Rome City Commission meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall.
