Final hearing on tax hike is tonight

The Lamar County commission will host what will likely be its last public hearing to collect citizen input on the millage rate tonight at 6:30 p.m. at the courthouse. An increase of at least 1.5 mills is a certainty and a two mill increase is the likely outcome of the budgeting/hearing process The commission must set the rate and get its digest numbers to the Georgia Department of Revenue by September 1 or face a $3000 per week fine, commission chairman Jay Matthews said Monday.
