MARIETTA, Ga. -- Cobb County Commission Chairman Tim Lee will propose a drop in the millage rate paid by Cobb County residents. 

The millage rate is the amount a property owner pays in annual property taxes. A reduced rate would pave the way towards a five-year commitment to reduce property taxes for all residents in Cobb. A spokesperson for the Cobb Co. BOC said the millage rate is able to come down due to tighter spending and keeping funds within the budget. 

Lee will address the millage rate change at Tuesday's meeting, scheduled for 7:00 p.m., in the BOC Room of 100 Cherokee Street in Marietta.
