Spending varies little from previous year

The Dawsonville City Council adopted the budget for fiscal year 2011-12 during a meeting Monday night.

At $1.2 million, the budget hasn't changed much from last year's $1.15 million plan for municipal services and expenses.

Councilmen voted 4-0 to approve the budget, which includes the assumption that no city property tax will be levied.

On May 23, the council voted to roll back the millage rate to zero for the coming year, which will continue Dawsonville's longstanding tradition of not having a city property tax.

Residents must still pay county property taxes.

Governments determine millage rates by calculating the dollar amount needed to fund general operations for the year.

A mill is equal to $1 for each $1,000 in assessed property value. Assessed value is 40 percent of actual market value.
