The City of Metter has rescheduled its public hearing and millage rate adoption called meeting to Thursday, Aug. 27, at 5:15 p.m. at Metter Police Department. The called meeting will immediately follow the public hearing.

The City originally announced a called meeting for Aug. 18. However, the tax digest and five-year history of levy, which the city posted in last week’s Metter Advertiser, contained an incorrect computation and indicated a wrong roll-back millage rate.

The city’s tentative millage is 10.702 mills, a rollback of 1.281 mills from the 2019 rate of 11.983.

County adopts millage

On Monday, no citizens came or called in to comment on the county’s proposed millage rate of 12.3790 in both the incorporated and unincorporated portions of the county.

Following the public hearing, commissioners opened their second regular meeting of the month and adopted the rate, which is a rollback of 0.091 mills from the 2019 rate of 12.4700.
