March 11, 2020 UPDATE -

Cobb County Commission Chairman Mike Boyce has canceled the remaining SPLOST Renewal Open Houses for the month of March amid concerns over large crowds and the spread of the COVID-19 virus.  The six scheduled events this month will not take place, but 11 other dates in April and early May will remain on the schedule.

Boyce considered this a prudent move based on concerns of residents and the desire to help staff focus primarily on protecting our community by handling other issues as they develop.

March 10, 2020 UPDATE -- 

Wednesday’s SPLOST Renewal Open House scheduled for the West Cobb Library has been canceled.

The library system closed the West Cobb Library Tuesday for deep cleaning after discovering a worker had a possible exposure to a COVID-19 patient.

The worker has not been diagnosed with the virus but under an abundance of caution the worker was sent home and a cleaning company has been contracted to work on the facility.  We do not know how long that cleaning will take.

In addition, county staff has been enacting pro-active cleaning and sanitizing measures at other county facilities and the county has established a task force to deal with other issues surrounding this virus and its effect on county operations.

The Tuesday, March 10th Open House in Acworth will go on as scheduled.

----

Voters will be asked in November to renew Cobb County’s SPLOST program for another six years.  Residents wishing to learn more about what this continuation of SPLOST will include are invited to attend any one of a series of public information Open Houses around Cobb County.
