Interested in retiring to Hart County?
Many retirees are looking to Georgia and are attracted to the rich history, fine communities, healthcare and the opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors year round. Hart County is just the place for any retiree who wishes to live life to its fullest.
Hart maintains the lowest County tax rate in Georgia. (This is out of 159 counties.) The Hart County Board of Commissioners lowered the tax millage rate for seven years in a row. This lower millage rate is 28% less than the millage rate five years ago and is a critical sales tool to continue to entice businesses to locate to Hart County.
Healthcare is a priority to Hart County. The Hart County Hospital includes an intensive care unit, sub-acute care unit, out-patient surgery and emergency facilities open 24 hours a day. The hospital recently updated the facility with a new surgical center. The $5.5 million project included a 14,000 square foot addition and renovating 4,000 square feet of existing space. The ER includes new treatment rooms as well as new surgical operating suites with several procedure rooms.
