Hall County Commission adopts FY 2016 budget

The Hall County Board of Commissioners adopted a balanced budget Thursday night for the fiscal year that begins July 1, 2015, and ends June 30, 2016.

The General Fund millage rate, which is the property tax rate that supports daily operations, was rolled back from 5.989 mills to 5.735 mills. The Fire Fund millage rate, which supports Fire Services, has been set at 2.65 mills for unincorporated residents and 4.08 for incorporated residents.

"Hall County Government has continued to improve its financial outlook through conservative fiscal management by staff and elected officials. Every effort has been made to maximize taxpayer dollars, and we are extremely optimistic about the fiscal future of Hall County," said County Administrator Randy Knighton.

The General Fund budget is approximately $93.6 million and includes major functions of the government, including law enforcement, public safety, courts, road maintenance, parks, libraries, development services, tax assessment and collection, and government administration. In addition to the General and Fire Funds, the total county budget includes other operational funds that are self-supported by user fees and other revenue sources. The total county budget for all funds is $221.8 million. In addition, the County Commission has included funding in the budget for an increase to be used for employee compensation.

Hall County held a Budget Forum on May 18 and May 19 and public hearings on June 18, June 22, and June 25 prior to budget adoption. The budget is available at www.hallcounty.org/budget, where revenue and expenditure updates are posted monthly for citizen review.
