Boards, Authorities, and Commissions

Cobb County has over 40 boards, authorities, and commissions whose purpose is to assist with oversight, policy-making, and advisement to the various Cobb County departments. Membership is comprised of dedicated citizens appointed by the Board of Commissioners or by other municipalities and entities.

Cobb’s boards, authorities, and commissions are created by Georgia or County code, by resolution of the Board of Commissioners, or by the Georgia Legislature. The term lengths for members vary, but often run concurrent with the appointing commissioner. In 2007, the Cobb County Code was amended making members subject to the Ethics Code.

The Clerk’s Office maintains a database with the Board of Commissioners’ appointments to these various boards and authorities. Information tracked includes names, terms, descriptions and by what authority the board was created. Historical information regarding the boards and authorities is also housed in the County Clerk’s Office. For complete list, click here.
