Transparency Center

Board of Commissioners

Cobb County operates under the commission-county manager form of government. This system combines elected officials' policy leadership with a county manager's administrative abilities.

Town Hall meetings are listed for each commissioner on their page.

Open Records Requests

Cobb County follows state open records laws regarding retaining and releasing all applicable public records.

Our open records center is located in the county's legal department.  Due to the volume and specialized nature of county records, many departments have their own records custodians.  Our main open records center can direct your request to the proper custodian.


Cobb County appreciates any feedback received regarding the performance of any of our county's departments. Help us make our county better for you!
