TIFTON — The Tifton City Council approved a millage rate rollback at its July 20 meeting.

City Manager Pete Pyrzenski said the new rate is 9.726, down from 9.731.

“As far as our tax digest it’s very, very stable,” he said. “We’ve had some growth but it’s just at $1,000.”

The council awarded a $530,835.33 bid for street resurfacing to East Coast Asphalt. Since the bid came in approximately $100,000 under budget, the council authorized Pyrzenski to negotiate for additional roads to be included in the resurfacing list for this year.

The roads on the list include:

• Victory Drive from 2nd Street to 3rd Street

• Central Avenue from Hwy 82 to 17th Street

• 13th Street from Central Avenue to Ridge Avenue

• Tift Avenue from 2nd Street to Hwy 82

The council also approved a consent agenda, which included:
