MARIETTA, Ga. — The Marietta City Council this week adopted a general fund millage rate of millage rate of 2.788.

This is the same rate as last year. City officials are quick to note that for the seventh year in a row, the city received less property tax revenue than it did in 2008, before the start of the economic recession.

On June 10, the Marietta City Council adopted a balanced budget for the fiscal year that started July 1. The budget was recommended by City Manager Bill Bruton and the city finance staff.

No service reductions and no tax or fee increases were included in the budget, the city said.

Marietta has a general fund budget of $52.7 million and a total budget of $339.7 million.
