Doral, FL – With a 4 to 1 vote decision, the City of Doral Council voted to set the millage rate for Fiscal Year 2012-2013 at 2.2430 mills, hence lowering the millage rate set for FY 2011-2012.
The vote took place during the first budget hearing for FY 2012-2013. The millage rate set by the City Council means property owners will be taxed $2.2430 for every $1,000 of assessed taxable value.
