******The City of Comer Mayor and City Council today announces its intention to increase the 2020 Property Taxes it will levy this year by 2.22 percent over the rollback millage rate.  Each year, the board of tax assessors is requires to review the assessed value for property tax purposes of tangible property in the county.  When the trend of prices on properties that have recently sold in the county indicate there has been an increase in fair market value of any specific property, the board of taxassessors is required by law to re-determine the value of such property and adjust the assessment.  This is called a reassessment.  When the total digest of the taxable property is prepared, Georgia law requires a rollback millage rate must be computed that will produce the same total revenue on thecurrent years digest that last year's millage rate would have produced had no reassessments occured.  The budget tentatively adopted by the Comer Mayor and City Council requires a millagerate higher than the rollback millage rate; therefore, before the Mayor and the City Council may finalize the tentative budget and set a final millage rate, Georgia law requires three public hearings to be held to allow the public an opportunity to express their opinions on the increase.  All concerned citizens are invited to the public hearings on this tax increase to be held at the Comer City Hall, 70 Hwy 72 E., Comer, GA on October 22 at 10:30 am and 6:00 pm and on October 29, 2020 at 6:00 pm.


The City of Comer Tax Bills will be sent out the week of November 2, 2020


*******COMER CHRISTMAS PARADE 2020********

As you know when a large production takes place, it takes planning several months in advance.  In order to have the Christmas Parade, planning and decisions would have to be made immediately for vendors, etc.   Because of the situation that our State is in with Carona-19 and because there are a lot of unknowns especially as far out as December, the Mayor and City Council of Comer has made a decision to err on the side of caution and cancel the Comer Christmas Parade.  It was a decision that the Mayor and Council knew would create some concerns and disappointment.  However, in keeping with the guidelines given to us by our Governor, Madison County Department of Health and Georgia Municipal Association we would ask that you understand that the decision was out of sheer caution to the citizens of Comer and those who would visit for the parade.  The City will install our Christmas Decorations just as normal.

Thank you for your understanding and for your support.



The state has released its first set of CENSUS 2020 numbers and Comer leads all of the citys in Madison County and close to 87%.  Please, if you havent already, complete your Census 2020 form and get it mailed in.  The National Census has shortened the time period to get the forms tunrned in by 30 days.  Please try hard to get your form in by the last day of August.  Every Comer Citizen matters and each Census Form for the citizens of Comer means money for our city. 


***Please DO NOT pile limbs up at the end of your property unless you have contracted someone to come and get the limbs for you.  The city does NOT pick up limbs and neither does AAA Garbage Service.


***Water Bills are DUE by close of business on the 10th of the month.  There is NO grace period unless you contact City Hall and make arrangements.


***If you have a Tax Bill that has not been paid from 2019 or any years prior, you MUST contact Comer City Hall to make arrangements to pay those past due bills by December 1, 2020.
