Cobb County continues to move forward as it adopts new technologies and new methods for improving our services to customers. Geographic Information Services have enabled us to create the cobbcommute.org site, which provides real-time traffic information for computer and smart phone users.
We are still undergoing a class and pay study to ensure our employees are properly compensated and we can attract and retain the best and the brightest. We also started multiple wellness initiatives to improve the health of our employees. This will reduce their health care needs and costs. We continually provide free classes on a variety of topics to train and retrain our employees – ensuring their skills remain the best.
These efforts, in turn, will help attract the most talented candidates to serve Cobb County. And their upward mobility will provide room for new talent and keep experience at the helm. We want to offer residents and visitors the best services and the best value for their money.
As always, Cobb government works to prioritize the needs of the community and budget accordingly. Similarly, we have sought to provide for public needs with the ongoing improvements funded through the Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax program.
Through fiscal responsibility; the efforts of our outstanding employees; and the support of the public, we will continue to provide for a great future.
