Commissioners vote on FY2014 budget

— Clayton County commissioners were set to vote Tuesday night on whether to approve the proposed $172.8 million fiscal year 2014 budget.

The budget calls for the county’s base millage rate to remain at 20.953 mills and the fire fund rate to stay at 4.4 mills. However, an increase in the county’s sales tax credit means the net millage rate property owners pay will likely drop from 14.912 mills to 14.549 mills.

The commission’s meeting began at 7 p.m., which is after deadline for Clayton News Daily. Check www.news-daily.com and read Friday’s edition of the newspaper to find out how the vote went.
