Gulfport set its tentative millage rate at 4.039 mils, which translates into roughly $4.04 in taxes for every $1,000 in taxable value.
This will not necessarily be the tax rate for property owners in Gulfport; this tentative rate represents the highest tax rate the council could set.
Gulfport City Council will hold two public hearings about the budget, on September 4 and September 16. City Manager Jim O’Reilly said staff would have the proposed budget online by Thursday, July 16. Read this article online at theGabber.com and look for the link to the budget.
