Commissioners to hear details on FY23 budget

June 21, 2022

Commissioners will hear details on the proposed FY23 budget during an informational work session set for 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 28.  This meeting will follow the Board of Tax Assessors' approval of the tax digest and will consider the recent pay and class report submitted by Evergreen during a work session earlier this year. Cobb Department Managers warned commissioners that many “critical” frontline positions remain vacant because workers have left for higher-paying jobs, and it has been challenging to replace them.  

Three public hearings on the budget and millage rate will follow into late July.  You can view this meeting (as well as all commission meetings) at

Public Hearings on Budget and Millage:
Tuesday, July 12 at 9 a.m.
Tuesday, July 19 at 6:30 p.m.
Tuesday, July 26 at 7 p.m.
