In Jefferson County, Georgia voters passed a non-binding referendum last month to increase the county's millage rate three mills to support its hospital. Would Elbert County voters approve such an increase for its hospital? Sat, 04/01/2017 - 5:55pm Choices Yes. A vast majority of Elbert County voters understand the importance of the hospital. Not sure. I'd wait to see if the tax credits recently approved by the legislature improve the hospital's financial standing. No. Three mills? That is too much of a burden for property owners.
