Hall County elected officials are looking at a millage rate rollback as they work on a budget plan for Fiscal Year 2021.
"As the board continues to analyze the effects of COVID-19 on our community, the commission also believes it is prudent to scale back its FY 2021 spending plan in anticipation of a potential reduction in revenues," Hall County Administrator Jock Connell said in a Monday afternoon press statement. "The members of the board have worked diligently to achieve a lower millage rate even in the midst of the worldwide coronavirus pandemic."
Connell did not indicate what areas of the budget will see spending cuts, but he said additional details will be available on Thursday, June 11 when the Hall County Commission gets a formal budget presentation at its regularly scheduled voting session.
"Hall County continues to improve its financial outlook through conservative fiscal management by staff and elected officials, and this year's budget will continue to reflect that while also ensuring citizens continue to receive effective and efficient services," Connell said.
Hall County Government's new fiscal year begins July 1, 2020.
