FULTON COUNTY BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS
Inauguration January 5, 2011

We are fortunate to live in one of the greatest counties in the world.

Although Fulton County has made great strides in many areas, I believe that our county can grow to even greater heights. To do this, we must first recognize our strengths and then identify our shortcomings in order to solve existing problems. I believe that the formula for greatness is admitting that problems exist and facing them head-on.

My commitment is to work closely with the Board of Commissioners in order to get these problems solved. I believe greatness can be achieved if individual differences are put aside for the benefit of Fulton County.

Working together with elected officials, the business and religious communities, as well as our neighborhoods, is the key to achieving true greatness.

Sincerely,

Robb

FULTON COUNTY BOC TO DELAY 2014 MILLAGE RATE VOTE-
PUBLIC HEARINGS WILL BE JULY 30 & AUGUST 6

Fulton County will delay the vote on a proposed millage rate increase scheduled for July 16, 2014.

The delay will allow for citizens to provide input at 3 ADDITIONAL PUBLIC HEARINGS. There will be no action taken on July 16, 2014 on the 2014 millage rate.

On Wednesday, June 18, 2014, the Fulton County Board of Commissioners voted to propose a 2014 General Fund millage rate of 11.781 mills and a Bond Fund millage rate of 0.27 mills.   The proposed South Fulton Tax District millage rate is 12.469 mills; this rate remains the same as the 2013 rate and affects properties in unincorporated Fulton County.

Fulton County’s current General Fund millage rate is 10.211 mills.   The proposed 2014 rate would be the first increase to Fulton County’s General Fund Millage Rate since 1991.

The Board of Commissioners has held two public hearings to date to allow for public input:
•Wednesday, July 9, 2014, 10 a.m.
•Wednesday, July 9, 2014, 6 p.m.

Those two meetings met with low attendance with only a total of 14 constituents providing feedback to the Board. The next scheduled public hearing is Wednesday, July 16, 2014, 10 a.m. during the Board’s recess meeting.   During the meeting, the Board will vote on the schedule for the additional public hearings and those dates once approved will be announced to the media and posted on the County’s website.

The additional dates being proposed are:

•Wednesday, July 30 at 10 a.m.

•Wednesday, July 30 at 6 p.m.

•Wednesday, August 6 at 10 a.m.

All public hearings will take place at the Fulton County Government Center, Assembly Hall, 141 Pryor Street, SW, Atlanta, GA 30303.   The public may also participate via videoconferencing from the South Fulton Service Center, 5600 Stonewall Tell Road, College Park 30349, and the North Fulton Service Center, 7741 Roswell Road, Sandy Springs, 30350.

Nine Polling Locations to Change in Fulton County for
July 22, 2014 Run-Off Election

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Fulton County Department of Registration and Elections will be required to change nine (9) polling locations for the 2014 Primary Run-Off scheduled for July 22nd.   All affected voters will be notified of the changes in location by first-class mail. All concerned residents are urged to check on-line to find out if the change would affect their poll on election day.

"Unfortunately, we will not be able to use eight schools and one church as polling locations for the upcoming run-off election," states Richard Barron, Director of the Fulton County Department of Registration and Elections.  "The schools will be undergoing renovations and the other location does not allow collection of signatures for a petition outside of the 150 foot buffer that is permissible by Georgia Election Code."

Polling location changes are posted on the department's website, www.fultonelections.com.  "It is my hope that residents will take a moment to verify if they are affected by the changes prior to election day," states Mr. Barron.
