AUGUSTA, Ga.---It took commissioners eight rounds of voting, but they finally agreed to a property tax increase for next year.

City administrator Fred Russell wanted about $12 more on a $100,000 home. Some commissioners said that was too much, but they agreed on Russell's plan in the end.

There will be public hearings and another vote before anything is final.

    Keep on reaching into my pocket and I'll join the herd of others moving out of the county. When the taxpayers leave then see what you have. Look at Detroit if you need an example.
