Gainesville to vote on rollback millage rate Tuesday

The Gainesville City Council will vote Tuesday on the proposed budget and rollback millage rate for the next fiscal year, which begins July 1.

There will not be a public hearing before the vote Tuesday.

The proposed millage rate is 3.322 mills, a rollback from the current year’s 3.364 mills. The decrease reflects the average amount a city property owner would need to see in order to avoid having to pay a higher rate due to a higher assessed property value.

The $31.9 million budget for Fiscal Year 2020 includes the relocation of Fire Station No. 2 from Holly Drive to Cleveland Highway, a skate park at Pine Street and High Street, and replacements of some aging police vehicles.

Water and sewer rates for Gainesville Water Resources will stay the same.

The budget is available on the city website.
