Cobb County Government

What is the County’s policy regarding debt?

Georgia law requires that the total amount of any county’s general obligation debt shall never exceed 10% of the total assessed value of all taxable property in the county. Based on the County’s 2013 tax digest and general obligation debt outstanding at September 30, 2013, the County is currently utilizing only 0.82% of its debt limit. The County chooses to pay cash for a substantial amount of capital improvements rather than issue general obligation bonds.
