Johns Creek Major Mike Bodker addressed the city’s infrastructure issues in the annual State of the City at the Atlanta Athletic Club this past Friday, February 11. To better keep up with the growth of Johns Creek community, the city’s infrastructure needs will require the city to acquire a good bond rating. There is a millage rate capped at 4.731, and in order to raise the cap, the issue would need to be voted on by 50 percent of eligible voters. This is difficult because it is unlikely that 50 percent will vote to raise the millage cap. The Mayor said that we’re “not looking to raise taxes or the millage rate.” The city charter will need to be altered to acquire a good bond rating, and the Mayor and city officials will be discussing whether to request an alteration from the state legislature at the 7pm meeting at City Hall in Johns Creek. Johns Creek residents are encouraged to attend the city meeting.
