Zachary City Council Agrees To Roll Forward Millage Tax Rate

Posted by zachary on July 14, 2016

By rolling forward the millage, the City of Zachary should bring in an additional $330,000 a year to address the needs of our growing city.  This is the first increase in millage in at least a decade.  Currently the average homeowner owing a $200,000 house in Zachary pays approximately $50 a year to the City of Zachary for infrastructure needs, including police and fire.  Under the new millage rate, this tax amount will increase to approximately $80 a year.  City expenses have grown rapidly as our population and growth has boomed in recent years. The 5.64 mills is the maximum the city could set without voter approval.
