Bibb to hold last hearing on millage rate today

The Bibb County Board of Commissioners will launch its final public hearing on a proposed tax increase at 6 p.m. today in the commission chambers on the fourth floor of the Bibb County Courthouse.

Commissioners have since all said they’re against a 1-mill tax increase that’s been advertised, but they differ on how cuts needed to balance the budget should be made. County Commissioner Sam Hart said residents will be welcome at the hearing, which the county needs to have under state law, even if the hearings’ purpose may be moot.
