CITY OF STONE MOUNTAIN ANNEXATION STUDY
Executive Summary
The boundari es of the study area encompass 12.21 square mi les of eastern DeKalb County,
including the existing City of Stone Mountain (see map on page 3). The estimated population of
the study area is 17,572.
The primary goal of the study was to determine if the revenues from general fund sources would
provide residents and prope1iy owners a higher level of governmental service at the same or
lower cost than is currently being experienced. The primary general fund services are:
Poli ce patrol, investigations and municipal court
Code Enforcement (propetiy maintenance, nuisances, and other non-criminal offenses)
Permitting ofland use (zoning, variances and special use),
Building pe1mits and inspections
Roads and sidewalks
Parks and Recreation
Community and economic development
Solid waste management and storm water management are proprietary funds supported by fees
for services. Currently the City of Stone Mountain contracts with Advanced Disposal for solid
waste services. Fees for commercial containers are twenty percent (20%) lower than fees
charged by DeKalb County. Residential service includes disposal of yard debris, mixed
recyclables, appliances (l imited) and once a week sanitary garbage pickup of 95 gallon
containers. Containers are provided by the city. The current annual cost for these services is
$198.90 including the container. Storm water fees equal those charged by DeKalb County with
the benefit that all revenues will be expended in the study area for storm water projects.
The study concluded that revenues would exceed expenditures in the general fund by $417,520.
TOT AL REVENUE 8,137,461
TOT AL EXPENSE 7, 719,940
SURPLUS 417,520
The surplus is estimated to be sufficient for the sta1i up costs and costs related to transition from
DeKalb County services to incorporated services by the City of Stone Mountain.
The two impact findings of the study were:
The increased taxation due to utility franchise fees, primarily electric power. The City of
Stone Mountain proposes to roll back the ad valorem property tax rate (mil rate) by an
amount equal to the new franchise fees so that taxpayers will not experi ence an over all
increase in taxation.
Police services would substantially improve in the study area from the level of service
currently provided by the DeKalb County Tucker Precinct. The Tucker Precinct averages
one officer for every 2,258 residents. The study proposes one officer for every 585
residents, which is slightly higher than the City's current ration of one officer for every
534 residents (see the table on page 17 for additional comparisons.
The conclusion is that incorporation of the study area will provide general fund services at the
same or lower cost than is currently being experienced by unincorporated residents.
Introduction
On September 25, 2013 the City of Stone Mountain received a request for proposal from propetiy
owners in the Stone Mountain Industrial Park for an annexation plan. The City determined that a
feasibility study similar to the studies conducted by the Carl Vinson Institute of Government for
the new cities of Dunwoody and Brookhaven would be the first step in the development of an
atrnexation plan. This repoti presents the results of the feasibility study.
The following factors were used to identify the geographical boundaries of the study:
1. Create no unincorporated islands (areas surrounded by the proposed new boundaries)
2. Include unincorporated areas that are only accessible by road through the existing City
3. Create a study area that balances the taxable commercial and residential propetiy digests
4. Follow existing boundaries of politically defined areas. Approximately 80% of the study
area is bounded by
a. The western boundary line of the Stone Mountain CID
b. The eastern boundary line bordering Gwinnett County
c. Georgia's Stone Mountain Park
The resulting study area is 12.21 square miles
1
with a population of 17,752 ± 50 residents

• The
boundary map for the study area is found on page 3.
This report provides estimates of revenues and expenditures for the study area as an established
city. Some revenues and expenditures corresponding to service delivery are di vided between the
County and the City during the transition from unincorporated area to incorporation.
The methodology for revenue and expenditure estimates is defined for all items greater than
$10,000. Sources for financial data for cities used for comparison include the Georgia
Depmiment of Community Affairs Wage & Salary Survey for 2012, the most recent budgets and
audits found on the Carl Vinson Institute's website, 2012 and 2013 results experienced by the
City of Stone Mountain and revenues repo1ied for DeKalb County in the Estimates for a
Proposed City of Brookhaven by the Carl Vinson Institute of Government.
The following table compares ad valorem tax rates for the study area with DeKalb County and
the annexation study area.

The estimated cost of police services provided by DeKalb County for the study area is based
upon the cost of the same services for a simi larly sized city in DeKalb County. Chamblee pays a
0.24 mil rate. The ad valorem tax rate for the purposes of this study is 3 .41 mils. This rate is the
rate for city operations required to maintain a total rate equal to the 2013 rate for unincorporated
DeKalb County. The mil rate for DeKalb County police services for the study area is 0.25.
The govenm1ental servi ces proposed for the study area is a combination of in house and out
sourced operations. The objective is to provide the highest level of service for the least cost.
Another way of stating the objective is that there is an optimal cost/benefit to be achieved.
Particular attention was paid to the level of service for the following operations:
>- Police
>- Roads
>- Permitting
>- Code Enforcement

Ad Valorem Tax
Revenue 1,662,319
Revenue from ad valorem taxation of real property is based upon taxation of forty percent ( 40%)
of the appraised value of the property. The DeKalb County Tax Assessors Office submits a
certified taxable digest to the State of Georgia each year. The taxable real property values in
Table 3 are compiled from the 2013 parcel file suppli ed by the DeKalb County Tax Assessors
Office for the study area. The value for exemptions is based upon the homestead exemption for
owner/occupants of single fami ly residences over the age of 62 in the City of Stone Mountain.
The senior exemption has income li mitations.
Utility Tax - $36,114
The Georgia Depaiiment of Revenue, State Board of Equalization and the DeKalb County Tax
Assessors Office prepare a Utility Tax Digest annually. The following tables show two different
methods for the estimation of ad valorem taxation of utility property.

Sanitation Franchise Fee - $43,665
The contractual fee for the franchi se granted to the private contractor providing solid waste
services to the City.
Real Property Tax Prior Years - $49,870
Real property taxes from prior years that are col lected in the current year are included in the
budget as a convenience. Technically these funds are deferred revenue that is included in the
fund balance for the year in which they are earned. The estimate is based upon an experience of
three percent (3%) of the annual real property tax revenues from the previous year.
Motor Vehicle Tax - $112,886
The Georgia Department of Revenue and the DeKalb County Tax Commissioner's Office
prepare an annual assessment of the taxable value of motor vehicles subject to ad valorem
taxation. Two methods were used to establish a taxable value for the study area. The first
method applied the ratio of the population of the study area to the population of unincorporated
DeKalb to the assessed value of motor vehicles in unincorporated DeKalb County. The second
method applied the ratio of the real estate assessed value in the study area to the real estate
assessed value in unincorporated DeKalb County. The real estate method produced the lower
assessed value of the two methods and was used for the revenue estimate.

Intangibles Tax - $133,766
The intangibles tax is an excise tax on mortgage security deeds recorded with the Clerk of the
Superior Cou1i of DeKalb County. The rate is set by the State of Georgia. The revenue estimate
of $133,766 was based on the ratio of assessed value of residential, commercial and industrial
property in the study area to the assessed value of residential, commercial and industrial property
in unincorporated DeKalb County.
Real Estate Transfer Tax - $26,739
The real estate transfer tax is an excise tax on transfers of real prope1iy recorded wi th the Clerk
of the Superior Court of DeKalb County. The rate is set by the State of Georgia.
Franchise Fees - $1,331,176
Franchise fees are charges collected by providers of services that utilize ri ght of way owned by
municipalities, such as electric power, natural gas pipeli nes, cable lines and telephone lines. The
City proposes to use these revenues to offset the ad valorem tax rate because the franchise rate
charged to property owners in unincorporated DeKalb County is lower than the rate charged to
prope1iy owners in the incorporated area. The mil rate equi valent for franchise fees is estimated
to be 2.62. A comparison city, the City of Snell ville, collected $1,238,386 during the fiscal year
ended June 30, 2012

Hotel Motel Tax - $39,420
Hotels and motel s collect a tax of fi ve percent (5%) on the charges for accommodations. Three
percent (3%) may be allocated to the general fund. There are four facilities in the study area.
Beer & Wine Tax - $277,354
Municipalities collect a tax on beer and wi ne from the sales of wholesale distributors. The
revenue estimate is based upon the ratio of the assessed value of business prope1iy in the study
area to the assessed value of business prope1iy in the County multiplied times the 2010 revenue
in the County.

Financial Institution Tax - $32,483
Georgia cities and counties may impose a tax on the gross receipts of financial institutions
located within their respective jurisdictions. Financial institutions file form PT-440 with each
8
jurisdiction for the tax. There are four branch banks located in the st udy area. Three are on
Mountain lndustrial Boulevard and one is in the City of Stone Mountain.
This revenue source is difficult to estimate due to its unique characteristi cs. Popul ation ratios do
not take into considerati on commercial accounts. The Carl Vinson Institute used populati on
ratios for their study for Dunwoody that generated an estimate of $36,622 as compared to the
actual revenue of$101 ,950 in 2011 . The rati o of assessed value of commercial prope1iy in the
Dunwoody study area to unincorporated DeKalb would have been more accurate ($101 ,918), and
it was thi s method that was used in the study for Brookhaven. However, the validity of this ratio
method is questionable because it assumes gross banking receipts generated by residenti al
accounts are reflected by commercial property values.
Our approach is to take the assessed value of commercial real prope1iy in the study area as a
basis for an estimate of commercial banking and the population ratio as a basis for an estimate of
residential banking. At this time there is no clear method for estimating the impact of industrial
businesses on gross banking receipts in the study area. Therefore the estimate for this study
should be considered very conservati ve.

Businesses are required to file a return of personal property of the business owned on January I
at its fair market value. Personal property of a business includes: furniture, fixtures, machinery,
equipment, inventory, freepo1i inventory, aircraft, boats and motors, and other personal property.
Business prope1iy is taxed at the ad valorem tax rate. The ratio of assessed value of real properiy
in the study area to unincorporated DeKalb County was the method used to estimate the tax
digest for business personal property. Business personal property is taxed at the ad valorem rate.

Business Property Tax Prior Year - $8,696
Business prope1iy taxes from prior years that are coll ected in the current year are included in the
budget as a convenience. Technically these funds are deferred revenue included in the fund
balance for the year in which they are earned. The estimate is based upon an experience of three
percent (3%) of the annual business property tax revenues from the previous year.
Penalties & Interest - $12,837
Municipalit ies charge penalties and interest on ad valorem property taxes paid after the statutory
due date. The revenue estimate is based upon a delinquency rate of one half of one percent of ad
valorem taxes.
Beer & Wine License - Package Sales - $20,000
The Beer & Wine License in The City of Stone Mountain is issued at a cost of $500.00 to
businesses selling beer and wine by the package. The number of licensees in the study area is
estimated at forty.
Liquor License - Package Sales - $60,000
The Liquor License for businesses selling di stilled spiri ts, beer and wine by the package is
assumed at a cost $6,000, whi ch is the same as charged by DeKalb County. The City CULTentl y
does not issue li censes for package sales of di still ed spirits. The number of licensees in the study
area is estimated at ten.
Liquor License - Consumption by the Drink - $28,000
The Liquor License in The City of Stone Mountain is issued at a cost of $2,800.00 to businesses
selli ng di stilled spirits, beer and wine by the dri nk for consumption on the premises. The number
of licensees in the study area is estimated at ten.
Insurance License - $28,750
Georgia law allows cities to collect a fee from insurance companies doing business within the
city's boundaries. This revenue is not directly proportional to population. The City of Stone
Mountain collected $19,075 in 2012. Snellville, a city similar in size to the study area, collected
$30,275 in 2011 . The ratio of the study area popul ation to the population of Snell ville is 95%.
The rationale for this method is that there will be proportionately more companies doing business
in a larger jurisdi ction.
Permits - $4,944
The estimate for permit fees is based upon the ratio of the populati on of the study area to the
population of the City of Stone Mountain (2.99) multiplied times the annual revenue of the City
of Stone Mountain for permits for signs, parades, outdoor displays of merchandise among others.
Zoning & Land Use Permits - $18,500
Fees are charged for plan review and inspecti ons. Fees are based upon the amount necessary to
fund the service. Revenue is based upon the number of estimated applications. Also included in
this category are land disturbance pennits (required by state law) and applications for land use
variance and special land use.
10
Building Permit - $196,857
Fees are charged for plan review and inspections. Fees are based upon the amount necessary to
fund the service. The estimate is based upon the ratio of the number of real propetiy parcels in
the study area to the number ofreal prope1iy parcel s in unincorporated DeKalb County.

Police Operations
Police operati ons in the study area are currently provided by the Ci ty of Stone Mountain and the
DeKalb County Tucker Precinct. The total unincorporated area and population served by the
Tucker Precinct is approximately 34 square miles (map shown on page 14) and 149,000 people.
The City of Snellvi ll e in Gwinnett County was selected to compare the study area to a city of
similar area and population.
The manpower levels for nine cities in metropolitan Atlanta are shown in Appendix I. The data
was obtained from the 2012 Georgia Department of Community Affairs Salary and Wage Survey
except for the Tucker Precinct. The following table compares manpower levels for field
operations. Field operations are defined in general, but not exclusively, by the activities shown in
the next Table. Positions below the rank of Lieutenant were assumed to be primarily engaged by
field operations.

The City of Stone Mountain employs three sergeants and eight patrol officers operating on eight
hour shifts: Day Watch from 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM, Evening Watch from 3:00 PM to 11 :00 PM
and Morning Watch from 11 :00 PM to 7:00 AM.
The Day Watch and Evening Watch are staffed by one sergeant and three patrol officers. The
Morning Watch is staffed by one Sergeant and two patrol officers. Detective Hughes and
Lieutenant Manning substitute when needed.
For the study area we propose employing six sergeants and thirty patrol officers working two
zones with three shifts identical to the cmTent City of Stone Mountain schedule. Zone One
would be the area north of the Stone Mountain Freeway and Zone Two would be the area south
of the Stone Mountain Freeway.

Tucker Precinct
The Day and Evening Watches would be staffed by one sergeant and four patrol officers. The
Morning Watch would be staffed by one Sergeant and three patrol offi cers. Two additi onal
patrol officers woul d be employed to substitute for officers who are on leave or in training.
When not substi tuting they woul d be assigned to patrol as needed or to traffic enforcement duty.

Table 3 on page 16 shows the wage and salary budget for the proposed police operations plan.
Wage rates for each officer reflect a competiti ve rate deri ved from the 201 2 DCA Salary and
Wage Survey for similarl y sized cities in the Metropoli tan Atlant a area. The sur vey is found in
Appendix II. Except for the position of Chi ef, the Bi-weekly pay is based upon eighty-six hours
every two weeks. Section 7(k) of FLSA rules for police officers allows for regular pay on this
basis instead of overtime pay.
Code Enforcement is proposed for supervision within the Department of Admini stration because
Code Enforcement Officers do not have arrest powers and work closely with the City Manager
and the Ci ty Clerk.
The total manpower proposed for police operations in the study is thi1iy-nine officers. All
officers must be POST certified and capable of patrol duty if needed. The organi zational chart is
shown on page 21
