Fulton County residents will have three more chances to weigh in on the Commission's proposal to raise property taxes.

The county commission during its Wednesday, July 16 meeting approved a new public hearing schedule for its 2014 millage rate. 

Public hearings will be held on the following dates:

• Wednesday, July 30 at 10 a.m. 
• Wednesday, July 30 at 6 p.m. 
• Wednesday, Aug. 6 at 10 a.m.

All public hearings will take place in the Assembly Hall at the Fulton County Government Center, located at 141 Pryor Street SW in Atlanta.

The public may also participate via videoconferencing from the South Fulton Service Center at 5600 Stonewall Tell Road in College Park and the North Fulton Service Center at 7741 Roswell Road in Sandy Springs.

The county was originally set to approve the 2014 millage rate during its meeting on Wednesday. 

The county is proposing to increase its current general fund millage rate to 11.781 mills from 10.211 mills. It's also proposing to set its bond fund millage rate at .27 mills. 

The increase, if approved, would be the county's first property tax increase since 1991. 

The proposed South Fulton Tax District millage rate is 12.469 mills, the same rate set in 2013.
