Annual Budget

The City’s Annual Operating and Capital Improvement Budget is a financial proposal that annually directs the provision of public services and facilities. This plan represents the City Manager’s and City Council’s commitment to provide for the most important citizen needs within the boundaries of available funds (revenue).

The process of developing a new fiscal year budget begins in January with the City Council’s adoption of priorities as part of its annual retreat. Department Budget Hearings and Finance Review take place from March and April, with workshops before Council, which are open to the public, held in April and May. Following the presentation of the proposed budget before Council, two public hearings are held before the Council adopts the fiscal year budget in June.

Proposed Millage Rate 

The millage rate will be set at a meeting to be held at the Sandy Springs City Hall, 1 Galambos Way, Sandy Springs, Georgia, 30328 on August 3 at 7:30 am and 6:00 pm, and on August 17, 2021 at 4:00 pm. The City's millage rate of 4.731 is set in the City's Charter and has not changed since incorporation. 

Pursuant  to the requirements of O.C.G.A. Section 48-5-32 the City publishes the following presentation of the current year's tax digest and levy, along with the history of the tax digest and levy for the past five years. The City Council intends to increase the property taxes it will levy this year by 3.05 percent over the rollback millage rate, which under state law is termed a tax increase, even though the tax rate is unchanged.
