*UPDATE 8/15/23:  The Public Hearing on tax rate increase has been changed.  This is not what the board had originally posted.

"The Douglas County Board of Commissioners has tentatively adopted a 2023 millage rate which will require an increase in property taxes by 2.50 percent.

All concerned citizens are invited and may speak at the public hearing on Tuesday, August 22, 2023, at 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. regarding this tax increase to be held in Citizens Hall at the Douglas County Courthouse at 8700 Hospital Drive, Douglasville, GA 30134.

Time and places of additional public hearings on this tax increase will be held Wednesday, August 30, 2023, at 10:00 a.m. to be held in Citizens Hall at the Douglas County Courthouse at 8700 Hospital Drive, Douglasville, GA 30134.

This tentative tax increase will result in the millage rate remaining the same at 12.563 mills, an increase of .307 mills.  Without this tentative tax increase, the millage rate will be no more than 12.256 mills.  The proposed tax increase for a home with a fair market value of $200,000 is approximately $25 and the proposed tax increase for non-homestead property with a fair market value of $225,000 is approximately $69."
