06/25/15: Notice of Property Tax Increase
 
The Troup County Board of Education has tentatively adopted a 2015 millage rate which will require an increase in property taxes by 2.66 percent.
 
All concerned citizens are invited to the public hearing on this tax increase to be held at Hogansville Elementary School Auditorium, 611 East Main Street, Hogansville, GA on July 9, 2015 at 10:00 A.M.
 
Times and places of additional public hearings on this tax increase are at West Point Elementary School Auditorium, 1701 East 12th Street, West Point, GA on July 9, 2015 at 6:00 P.M. and Administrative Services Center Board Room, 100 North Davis Road Building C, LaGrange, GA on July 16, 2015 at 6:30 P.M.
