Two more hearings about proposed Bibb tax increases set for today

Two more public hearings on proposed tax increases in Macon and Bibb County are on tap today.

At 11 a.m., a public hearing will be held in City Council chambers at Macon City Hall to hear from Macon residents about a proposed tax increase. If those plans hold, a city resident with a home valued at $100,000 would pay an extra $48 in taxes.Then, at 5 p.m., Bibb County school board members are scheduled to gather in the fourth-floor board room for their third and final public hearing. The board is set to vote on a new millage rate after the hearing.

If the board approves its plan, it would add about $33 to the tax bill on a $100,000 home.
