This week Lou speaks with Mike Boyce, Chairman, Cobb County Board of Commissioners. Tune in Saturday on AM 920 The Answer for the full interview.
The county is in a great place now,” Cobb County Commission Chairman Mike Boyce recently said. “The growth of the tax digest has allowed us to address the problem of public safety retention and to give county employees additional benefits such as a parental leave policy, more paid vacation time, and increase their compensation. The county libraries and other recreational and cultural amenities are again fully operational.”
There are many reasons why businesses and residents feel Cobb County offers true value, Boyce says. Undoubtedly one major reason is that Cobb continues to have low taxes and he has fulfilled his commitment to a more open and transparent government. There’s a boom in the economic activity being experienced throughout the county fueled by increased development, most notably the successful relocation of the Atlanta Braves to the County. The County welcomed 18 new companies or expansions in 2019, representing $325 million in investment and nearly 3,000 new jobs. With two highly regarded K-12 school systems, Kennesaw State University, several campuses of Chattahoochee Technical College, and Life University, Cobb has an educational system poised to meet the needs of the workforce in the 21st century. CobbLinc transports more than 2.5 million passengers annually, roughly 70% to their places of employment. The revision of the Comprehensive Transportation Plan includes a possible mobility referendum in 2022 focused on modernizing elements of its transit and transportation networks.
Boyce believes one of the great strengths of the county can be attributed to the relationships it has nurtured and grown. Joint projects with its six cities and their mayors help make Cobb a better place to live. Equally important is the mutual respect the county has with all its elected county government officials and its partnerships with the business community. An example of this was the seamless coordination among the County, Cobb Chamber, the Galleria and Exhibit Hall Authority, the CID’s, and Cobb Tourism and Travel in their preparation for hosting Super Bowl events last winter. The Galleria Centre hosted the "Taste of the NFL," the only NFL-sanctioned event outside of Atlanta. The Battery Atlanta also hosted a series of Super Bowl-related events. The NFL booked rooms in 20 Cobb County hotels, representing over 8,000 room nights. McCollum International Airport seamlessly handled more than 800 flights that weekend and parked over 200 aircraft.
“We are entering a new decade and Cobb County has never been in a better place. We work hard for our residents, constantly trying to live up to our motto of “Expect the Best” and to continue to make Cobb a choice destination where people can safely work, live, play, and pursue their dreams.
