Dougherty County Taxpayers Association speaks out

By   /   May 3, 2012  /   Comments Off

With all of the talk lately about the possibility of a raise in property taxes, it’s no surprise to many Albanians that the Dougherty County Taxpayers Association has something to day to it.

The group, responding to an email request by the journal, sent the following brief statement:

The Dougherty County Taxpayers Association will weigh all options to the City’s proposed millage increase (resulting from their gross mismanagement of taxpayer funds) including its legality and the many illegal exemptions including Phoebe’s giant exemption.

The group reportedly formed as a result of what was seen as poor practices with property tax appraisals and a high property tax rate.  The group made waves several years ago, though have quieted down a bit recently.

The above statement was made as an initial reaction.  We expect to hear back from the group with a more detailed statement.  Check out next week’s print edition of The Albany Journal for more.
