NEW! - Commissioners, Cities to review 2022 SPLOST Booklet (click button below)

Cobb County’s Board of Commissioners approved a SPLOST Project List that will be considered by voters this November. Cobb residents will be asked to renew the one-cent Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax when it expires at the end of 2021.

If approved, a large portion of the SPLOST revenue will go toward Department of Transportation projects, especially for road resurfacing.  The condition of Cobb’s roadways has deteriorated and engineers warn without a significant investment in resurfacing the cost for repairs could be insurmountable.

The SPLOST project list also contains multiple public safety projects, a new animal shelter, parks and library safety enhancements, and funding for projects in Cobb’s six cities. The mayors of those cities recently signed a joint letter urging commissioners to put the project list before the voters, calling SPLOST a crucial part of their infrastructure improvement process.
