A public hearing on Flowery Branch’s 2016-17 budget, which calls for a tax rate rollback, is set for 6 p.m. Thursday at City Hall, 5517 Main St.

The hearing will take place before the Flowery Branch City Council, which is also set to give its first OK to the tax rate Thursday.

The proposed rate is 3.264 mills, down from the current 3.337 mills, with 1 mill equal to $1 for each $1,000 in assessed property value.

The council is set to adopt the $4.4 million budget and give its final OK to the tax rate at its June 16 meeting, Finance Director Jeremy Perry said.

The budget takes effect July 1.
