COBB COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

Cobb County's property tax rate will not be going up after all, at least for now.

Over the objections of County Chairman Mike Boyce, commissioners voted 3-2 Tuesday night to keep the county's millage rate where it is.

Commissioner Bob Ott says the county will be forced to use $4 million in emergency funds in this year's budget, and an additional $4 million in the 2018 budget.

Boyce tried to argue that without a millage rate now, the tax rate would need a bigger increase in the future.
