Brookhaven proposes to keep taxes higher for newly annexed areas

Over the past few years in our pursuit to create a city within our footprint, I have had neighbors who believe it would be better to be annexed into a city like Brookhaven. One of the reasons for considering annexation was that the millage rate is lower in a city like Brookhaven. However, in the article below it appears that any new annexations into Brookhaven will be at a higher tax millage rate similar to DeKalb County. 
We believe a city of Vista Grove will keep our neighborhoods together and we can run key services more efficiently and locally at a lower tax rate than DeKalb County.
