CEO Burrell Ellis is coming to Toco Hills on Tuesday evening to talk with the community about his proposed 2010 DeKalb County budget. The CEO’s budget proposal includes a substantial property tax increase.
Commissioner Jeff Rader also will be participating in this meeting. He has prepared a thoughtful analysis of the CEO’s proposed budget. Click here to read Commissioner Rader’s commentary.
The Board of Commissioners decides what goes in the final budget, subject to any line item vetoes by the CEO. As Commissioner Rader has suggested, the BOC could downsize the budget to avoid having to increase the millage rate, which is used to calculate your property taxes.
This budget meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 16, at 7:00 p.m. at the Torah Day School of Atlanta (TDSA), 1985 LaVista Road.
