Whitfield County commissioners cut property tax rate

Oct. 29—The Whitfield County Board of Commissioners recently voted to set the 2022 maintenance and operations property tax rate at 7.3 mills, down from 7.312 mills in 2021.

Commissioner Robby Staten was absent, and board Chairman Jevin Jensen typically votes only if there is a tie.

Jensen said that cut is larger than the cut that would be required to offset any additional revenues from the growth of the tax digest.
