The Marietta Daily Journal – Commissioners express support for 6 year tax

MARIETTA — A poll of Cobb’s four district commissioners reveals they are leaning in favor of a six-year term for a proposed 1 percent special purpose local option sales tax.

During a meeting between the Board of Commissioners and the county’s mayors last month, Lee asked the mayors if they supported a six-year SPLOST. All said they did, with the exception of Kennesaw Mayor Mark Mathews, who was absent.

Next, Lee asked the four district commissioners. Commissioner Helen Goreham said she supported a sales tax renewal for that length of time, but the other three said they needed more time to consider the idea.

Commissioners will vote July 22 on whether to call for a SPLOST referendum on Nov. 4, the length of time the tax would last and the list of projects it would fund.

Commissioner Lisa Cupid expressed her support.

“I would hope the public would support a six-year SPLOST because it enables us to do more,” said Cupid, who represents south Cobb.
