Cobb Storm Debris Removal Policy: Cobb County crews cannot remove tree or landscaping debris that occurred on private property. The removal of this debris is the responsibility of the property owner.

Cobb County DOT crews are still working to clear roadways and right of way of debris mostly caused by falling trees during the recent snow storm. Crews will only clear the debris affecting county roads or property. Property owners are asked to call their private disposal company or tree service to have debris removed if necessary.

Be Prepared for Winter Weather

I heard that the county is not allowed to use revenue bonds to construct the SunTrust Park, is that correct?

Cobb County commission Chairman Tim Lee confirmed with legal experts that plans to fund the proposed SunTrust Park are well grounded.

"We have a top notch group of experts working together on this effort and I am confident that their guidance is right on target," said Cobb Commission Chair Tim Lee. "With experienced counsel representing both the county and the exhibit hall authority, as well as the county's own legal team, we are moving forward using a well-established funding process."

Cobb County Attorney Deborah Dance released the following statement in response to rumors to the contrary. "The County has been working closely with a team of attorneys that includes those specializing in the issuance of bonds and economic development projects. I have every confidence that the current plan for the issuance of revenue bonds by the Coliseum Authority and the execution of an intergovernmental agreement between the County and the Authority is a legal, permissible and appropriate way to address funding for the new SunTrust Park project. Statements to the contrary appear to be due to a lack of understanding of the structure of the transaction and the law, which has been established by the Georgia Supreme Court for decades. Many major development projects throughout the State, including Cobb's own Performing Arts Center, have successfully utilized just such a transaction structure over a number of years."
