2011 Fayette County Board of Commissioners (left to right): Allen McCarty, Steve Brown, Herb Frady, Robert Horgan, Lee Hearn A Message from the Chairman The economy once again took center stage during 2011 as your local government continued to make adjustments for additional declines in property tax revenues, sales tax collections, fees, permits and real estate taxes. As a result of the foreclosure crisis, the aggregate value of properties within the county declined for the fourth consecutive year. Current estimates reflect an overall loss of more than 1 billion in values during this time period. As a result property taxes which represent approximately 63% of all revenues collected to support local government services declined by approximately $2.5 million this past year. However through the efforts of your Board of Commissioners with support from our Constitutional Officers and staff to do more with less, this loss of revenue has not resulted in a reduction of service levels.

On a brighter note, it is anticipated that Lake McIntosh, the county’s newest reservoir located on the Fayette-Coweta border, will begin impounding water in the summer of 2012. It is estimated that it will take approximately eighteen months for the Lake to reach full level and bring to completion the last of the reservoirs needed to meet the future water needs of the county. Also, this past year the Fayette County Library witnessed the completion of a major addition expanding the capability of the library to meet the continued needs for its services to the community. The construction project managed in-house by county staff came in under budget. The Board of Commissioners implemented a Storm Water Utility with the purpose of ensuring that the storm-water infrastructure in the county is maintained in accordance with established service levels and state and federal environmental standards. The program is designed to ensure that storm water runoff will not adversely affect water quality given that many of our residents rely on groundwater (wells) for their drinking water. With a rate structure comparable to other communities that have a storm-water utility, the program will provide dedicated revenues to replace and repair critical infrastructure that has gone unfunded in prior years. The Board continues to look for innovative and effective ways in addressing the shortfall in revenues. It is our hope that we have turned the corner on our economic malaise and can look forward to a brighter future. A future that carries on the tradition of providing a quality of life that has defined our community for many years. There are many other accomplishments during this past year. I hope that you will read this report and recognize that the Board of Commissioners and our staff are diligently working on your behalf and take seriously the responsibility of serving you with professional services that are responsive to your needs. Herb Frady Chairman
