2015 FULTON COUNTY MILLAGE RATE 10.911 MILLS

June 25th, 2015

"Two things in life are inevitable, death and taxes." Ben Franklin The Fulton Board of Commissioners has approved advertising the maximum possible general fund millage rate of 10.9111 mills.  This is a 7.3% decrease from 2014 millage rate of 11.781, but is not a full rollback from the 17% property tax increase of 2014. Final vote will be July 15, 2015. I am hopeful that we will set a much lower millage rate at the July 15 Board of Commission meeting, and am working with our county manager, finance staff, and the BOC to bring efficiency and fiscal responsibility to our county government.  My ...

February 25th, 2015

On Tuesday, February 24, we saw yet another in a series of news stories alleging  poor management and leadership within Fulton County Government, once again in the Fulton County Police Department. Like many Fulton County residents, I was surprised by the media report of Fulton County Police Chief Cassandra Jones’ flexible work arrangements.  These allegations raise many questions about professional judgment and leadership in the Police Department and cannot be ignored. Therefore,  I am requesting a full investigation of the management of FCPD to ensure that the citizens of Fulton County, along with our police officers, are receiving the level of ...

September 4th, 2014

September 4, 2014 Johns Creek, GA- The Fulton County Board of Commissioners took a vote yesterday on a resolution urging the Fulton County Sheriff to implement a policy to decline detainer requests from the United States Department of Homeland Security Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

As has happened often in the past, the Fulton BOC has once again taken a position on a matter that is not within the purview of the authority of the Board of Commissioners. In my opinion, this resolution falls into the category ...
