Ball Ground City Hall

Ball Ground property taxes are supposed to stay about the same this year, since the city council approved a rolled back millage rate.

Home and property owners in Ball Ground should see close to the same tax bill they did last year, after the Ball Ground City Council approved its latest property tax millage rate Thursday.

The council unanimously approved setting the property tax rate at 4.633 mills, rolled back from last year’s 5 mills. This means property taxes will remain about the same as last year, according to city officials. The owner of a home valued at $200,000, for example, would receive a city property tax bill of $400.

Also at the meeting, the council finalized the qualifying dates for this year’s municipal elections. Up for election this year are the position of mayor and two of the five city council seats. Qualifying will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Aug. 16 and Tuesday, Aug. 17, and 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 18. The fees are $35 for the city council positions and $108 for mayor.
