The Fulton County Commission has approved the county’s first property tax hike in 23 years, according to a report from WSB.

Four commissioners including Bill Edwards, Emma Darnell, Tom Lowe and Chairman John Eaves voted in favor of the 17 percent hike. Commissioners Robb Pitts, Joan Garner and Liz Hausmann all voted against it.

The hike means a home valued at $275,000 would see a $140 increase on the annual tax bill.

This table from Fulton County provides an estimate of the annual and monthly increase for properties with the standard Fulton County homestead exemption of $30,000.
