  1. Board approves 2015 millage rateTue, 21 Jul 2015 00:00:00 EDT
    On July 21, 2015, the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners adopted 2015 millage rates to fund the services provided by county government, rolling back the general fund rate by 2.3 percent and maintaining last year’s rate for the service districts. A mill is one dollar of tax for every $1,000 of the assessed property value. State law requires that a rollback millage rate be computed for the maintenance and operations fund, also called the general fund, that will produce the same total revenue on the current year’s new tax digest that last year’s millage rate would have produced had no reassessments occur “The district commissioners and I are pleased that we are able to roll back the general fund millage rate and still meet our service commitments while maintaining a balanced budget. We appreciate the good work by County officials and staff that made this possible,” said Board Chairman Charlotte Nash. Millage rates in Gwinnett County vary based on a property’s location and what services the county provides. The total millage rate in unincorporated areas will be 13.579, down slightly from last year. Rates for three service districts will remain the same: fire and emergency medical services (3.20 mills), police (1.60 mills) and development and code enforcement (.36 mills). In addition, the countywide levy for both voter-approved debt and recreation remain unchanged at .24 and .95 mills, respectively, while the general fund rollback rate is 7.229 mills. Click here to view a table detailing millage rates in different areas of the county. Today’s action by commissioners also paved the way for the Tax Commissioner’s Office to prepare property tax bills for mailing by August 15 with a payment due date of October 15. For an interactive online tool that shows estimated property taxes for any Gwinnett property and what those taxes buy, look under Where Your Property Tax Go on the Your Money webpage.  More...
  2. Beat the heat this summerMon, 13 Jul 2015 00:00:00 EDT
    Summer in Georgia is a time for camping trips, cookouts, and afternoons by the pool. However, it’s also a time to be aware of the dangers soaring temperatures can bring. Extreme heat is the number one weather-related killer in the U.S, claiming more than 650 lives across the nation each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Follow these tips from Gwinnett County Emergency Management and Georgia Emergency Management Agency’s Ready Georgia to beat the heat this summer: Never leave children or pets alone in closed vehicles. Fluids are lost through perspiration, so it’s important to stay well hydrated. Drink plenty of water, even when you’re not thirsty. Stay indoors in air-conditioned spaces as much as possible and limit exposure to the sun. Dress in loose-fitting, lightweight, and light-colored clothes that cover as much skin as possible. Avoid strenuous work during the warmest part of the day. Drink two to four cups of water every hour when you are working outside. Check on elderly neighbors and family and friends who do not have air conditioning. Make sure pets have plenty of water and shade, be careful to not over-exercise them, and keep them indoors when it's extremely hot. Familiarize yourself with the symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Heat exhaustion symptoms are heavy sweating, fatigue, muscle cramps, confusion, cold, pale and clammy skin, a weak rapid pulse, and possible fainting and vomiting. Heat stroke is a severe medical emergency that occurs when the body temperature reaches 106 degrees or higher. Symptoms include hot dry skin, rapid and strong pulse, and possible unconsciousness. Summon immediate emergency medical assistance. Insulate your home by installing weather stripping around your doors and window sills to keep the cool air inside. Closely monitor your local radio station, TV station, or NOAA Weather Radio or download the Ready Georgia app for the latest information on excessive heat watches and warnings. For more tips on how to safe in the summer heat, visit www.gwinnettsafety411.com or www.ready.ga.gov. More...

    The Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners and offi­cials from the city of Lilburn and Gwinnett County Public Library broke ground on the new Lilburn City Hall and Lilburn branch of the Gwinnett County Public Library on June 8 at the building site. Gwinnett County Government and city of Lilburn previously agreed on cost-sharing details for the project in May of last year after signing an initial understanding in 2011. The two-level building will include 5,217 square feet of shared community and support space in addition to the 18,864-square-foot library and 24,927-square-foot city hall. It is designed to meet LEED Certification Version 3.0 through the U.S. Green Building Council. Hogan Con­struction Group LLC of Norcross will construct the $11.3 million facility, which will take about 14 months to com­plete. Gwinnett County will manage construction and the two entities will share in the cost. Funding comes from the County’s SPLOST program.

  7. Gwinnett motorists and cyclists urged to be safe and courteous while sharing the roadWed, 01 Jul 2015 00:00:00 EDT
    Cycling is more popular than ever across the nation and right here in Gwinnett. It offers an environmentally friendly alternative to driving and is an excellent form of exercise. Later this year, Gwinnett County will begin the process of developing a new long-term Comprehensive Transportation Plan that will include bicycle and pedestrian elements addressing safety and mobility. Keep checking www.gwinnettcounty.com for updates. Cyclists of all ages travel daily on Gwinnett’s roadways. That’s why it is important for motorists and cyclists to work together to keep our streets safe for everyone. Remember, state law allows cyclists to use public roadways and requires motorists to share the road. With that in mind, below are ways for everyone on the road to stay safe while traveling. For motorists: Georgia law requires a motorist passing a cyclist to provide at least a three-foot buffer between the vehicle and the cyclist. Never use a bike lane to pass other vehicles or as parking spaces. Yield to cyclists just like you would for pedestrians crossing the roadway.    For cyclists: Always wear a helmet; it is the most effective safety device available to reduce head injury and death from a bicycle crash. Ride with traffic, use appropriate hand signals, and obey all stop signs and traffic signals as if you were driving a motor vehicle. Make eye contact with motorists while making turns or crossing to ensure that they are paying attention to you. For more safety tips, visit the Gwinnett Safety 411 page. If you identify an immediate cycling or pedestrian safety need on one of your routes, please submit a service request by phone at 770.822.7474, by email at DOTServiceRequest@gwinnettcounty.com, or through the County website at www.gwinnettcounty.com under Citizen Self Service.
