Remember, if you don’t support the tax hikes, roving gangs of illegal mexicans will rape your children. At least that’s the impression I get from our commissioners who need more money to buy overpriced land from their friends and campaign contributors.
Gwinnett County officials today outlined a proposal that would restore some of the spending reductions made earlier this year to the county’s public safety, parks and recreation and social services programs. The new proposal would be funded by a 2.28-mill increase in county property taxes.
The proposal was developed by county staff in response to a request from District 4 Commissioner Kevin Kenerly and was unveiled at a press briefing by Board Chairman Charles Bannister, Commissioner Kenerly, County Administrator Glenn Stephens and the county’s Chief Financial Officer Aaron Bovos.
Stephens said the county would hold three public hearings on the proposed property tax increase on Monday, November 23, at 10:00am and 6:00pm, and then on December 1 at 7:00pm at the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center in Lawrenceville. He said he expected the county commission would formally consider the proposal at a special called meeting following the 7:00pm hearing on December 1.
