Tax Reduction at July 26 BoC Meeting May Impact Park Bond 2008 Funding

Would you rather have 300 acres of pristine parkland or an $8 refund?
The Chairman's efforts to reduce the millage again threatens the easy issuance of Park Bond 2008. At the Tuesday, July 26, 7pm Board of Commissioners meeting, Commissioner Lee plans to reduce the Debt Service Fund, which pays for park bonds, by .1 millage (about $8 for the average homeowner). Join us in asking the Board to fully fund Park Bond 2008 as voters decided by referendum....  Read the blog post here
"We're not kidding: It's time to fully fund the 2008 Park Bond for $40 million as voters approved!"
Please VOTE on Tuesday, July 26, 2016 Runoff for the Chairman of the Board of Commissioners!  Polls will be open from 7pm to 7pm on July 26!
Look for our New signs around Cobb County!
Park Bond supporters will speak at the Board of Commissioners meeting on Tuesday, July 26 at 7pm meeting at 100 Cherokee Street, 2nd floor meeting room.  Please attend if possible, and wear green to support the amazing Cobb Parks Coalition speakers!! 

If you can't attend the meeting, send a quick email to the Commissioners asking them to fully fund Park Bond 2008 before reallocating that money to any other project, such as the Braves.

From the latest CPC Blog Post:  It's true Park Bond 2008 could be repaid faster if the Braves weren't taking .23 from the Debt Service Fund, but the point is even with the Braves funding, Park Bond 2008 could be fully funded today, if the Board chose to do so:  The funding is already there.... We just need the leadership to do the right thing for the future of Cobb County. 
This was the original Park Bond ballot item in 2008!
