E-News From Councilman O'brien

MILTON, GEORGIA: PROPERTY TAX TOWN HALL MEETING

Hello Neighbors:

I want to invite each of you to a Special Town Hall Meeting, devoted specifically to hearing your thoughts and answering any questions you may have about your Milton Property Tax Bill.

LOCATION: MILTON CITY HALL, 13000 DEERFIELD PARKWAY, CITY COUNCIL CHAMBERSDATE: SEPTEMBER 19TH 2007TIME: 6:30 PM

Recognizing that there are many questions and concerns about our first Property Tax billing, I requested that the City Manager schedule a Town Hall Meeting at the earliest opportunity.
I am very pleased that the Mayor and my Council colleagues have agreed to assemble at the date and time noted above, as a special outreach to every Milton taxpayer with a desire to discuss this topic.

We will be present, along with all resources of Staff, to answer your questions, hear any feedback you may have and help ensure that we have an extremely high level of service to Milton residents.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE DEADLINE HAS PASSED TO APPEAL APPRAISALS.
THE CITY OF MILTON HAS, HOWEVER, EXTENDED THE DEADLINE FOR SENIORS TO APPLY OR CORRECT HOMESTEAD STATUS, DEPENDING UPON ELIGIBILITY.

Please remember that if you carry an escrow account with your mortgage lender, they will not be expecting a new or separate Tax bill from the City of Milton.

In other words, most mortgage clients have been paying Fulton taxes for many years, so this process occurs automatically, with coordination between the County and your mortgage company.

To avoid an inadvertent failure to pay your City Tax Bill, it would be wise to ensure your mortgage institution is notified of this obligation.

I would suggest that you review your individual mortgage statement for the office address or fax number, in order to disburse escrow funds to pay the tax due.
If you join us on September 19th, please bring that information (or a recent statement), along with your Milton Tax Bill, to assist in addressing your particular questions.

STAFF WILL PROVIDE FAX ASSISTANCE AT NO CHARGE TO ASSIST IN NOTIFYING YOUR MORTGAGE COMPANY, IF DESIRED.

As a final thought, please remember that the Staff seeks to provide exceptional and responsive service to all of you in Milton.

If you have frustrations with policy, taxes or any aspect of City operation, please let your elected officials “take the heat”. That is what we signed up for.

Our tremendous Staff will continue to take care of day to day issues; while we respond to the customers we serve and chart the course that Milton takes in coming years.

I look forward to seeing everyone with questions and am pleased to provide that opportunity, with the support of the City of Milton.

I am proud to provide responsive leadership that makes a difference for taxpayers and families in Milton, Georgia!

Very Respectfully, Your neighbor,
Neal O’Brien
Milton City Council
District Four
Paid for by Friends of Neal O’Brien, 635 Devonshire Farms Way, Milton, GA 30004-4322
Friends of Roger Santi 545 Tullamore Way Milton GA 30004

Mr. O'brien, Since you were responsible for this meeting about our taxes, why were you the only one of the council that was "not" present at the meeting? The Mayor and all of the other council members were present and very helpful with our questions.

Is Neal's website down?

He's probably on a "go team" mission.

Someone told me that O'Brien or Mohrig has been doing some construction work on Jan Jones' personal home? Is this true or hearsay? Anyone know, or is this just gossip. I would like to know, because if it is true then that is glaring proof of her influence and a major conflict of interest.

Friends of Roger Santi are funding Friends of Neal O'Brien? Am I reading the bottom of the information correctly? What The? It's All In The Family. Where's Archie Bunker when you need him!

OMG, is this true? There is THE connection right in print. You do know that Neal O'Brien hardly has any supporters anymore. Almost every single person on his last campaign refused to work with him again because they say he lied to all of them. Take a drive through Devonshire Farms and see how many O'Brien signs you see. That's where Neal lives. Not much support there either (well, maybe some signs at his own house). I don't want to sound so cruel it's just that I'm fairly close to this mess and I know that Neal O'Brien must get off our Council. He has not been such an honorable man. Shame on you, Neal.

A VOTE FOR BURT HEWITT IS A VOTE FOR MILTON without any political games.

There are no O'Brien Signs in his neighborhood. Very few if any neighbors voted for him the first time around. Too bad the public did not know how bad a HOA President he was!

I doubt very seriously if the meeting was his ideal! If so why did he not show. He was intown.
