Mt. Zion Lowers Millage

Mt. Zion, GA -- As local cities are having to make decisions to raise or lower the millage rate, Mt. Zion becomes another city fortunate enough to be able to lower theirs as the city council voted unanimously to lower the millage rate by .14 mills in an attempt to provide some relief to area residents and maintain the current level of revenue according to the latest tax digest from the county.

The proposed cut in the millage rate will be submitted to the county for approval.

--Waste Management Industries partners with thousands of municipalities like Mt. Zion to provide affordable waste pickup and recycling.  At the Mount Zion city council meeting Tuesday night, council voted unanimously to not include recycling pickup in its contract renewal.

Adding recycling to the service in Mt. Zion would cost approximately $2.50 to every Mt. Zion resident whether they recycle or not.  

-- Mt. Zion city council voted unanimously on Tuesday to agree with other area municipalities to a proposal by the county to delay the first 3 months of the 2016 SPLOST collections for the benefit of Carroll County.
The proposal from the county is aimed at shoring up some bond debt in early 2016 for projects that are underway or will be underway before the next round of SPLOST is voted on.
The proposed rate for LOST collections for the city of Mt. Zion are set to go up under the latest intergovernmental agreement as well, pushing the city’s monthly earnings from SPLOST up from ~$20,000 to ~$23,000 according to Mayor Randy Sims.
