Due to who is making the decisions for Cobb, I believe that at some point all of Cobb residents will be required to dig out the check book and help pay for this money pit. When it is determined that the funding is not as secure as once thought there will be a "temporary" tax on all of us. BTW, "temporary" taxes have a way of becoming permanent.

Reallocation of existing Revenues 8.67 Million.

What were these funds allocated for?

Since the Braves control the stadium and its uses, they should be responsible for all improvements.

I like 66/33 much better.

Who negotiated this agreement?... or was it dictated by the Braves.

Tim Lee (a former Bankruptee) is not noted for his Negotiating skills... but as a tool of the CofC.

"If you like your taxes, they will stay the same."

Sounds Familiar.
Taking Park Money?

I thought money in the Parks Bond had to go for the list of specified parks on the ballot initiative. How can they take that parks money for the stadium. Legal ??

Citizens of Cobb County are being handed a serious bunch of non truths. People if you do your homework you'll find that sports facilities cost citizens more than the revenues they bring in. Think and I mean REALLY THINK, you can't pay for it with revenues that are not guaranteed. The revenues are based on "HOPE". The worst part of this is we can't vote the Commissioners out soon enough
