Both East Cobb-area Cobb commissioners and a local school board member will be holding town hall meetings in the coming week.
District 2 commissioner Bob Ott and Post 6 Cobb Board of Education member Scott Sweeney will hold a joint town hall meeting Tuesday starting at 7 p.m. at Sope Creek Elementary Schoool.
Among the topics are the March 19 Cobb Education SPLOST referendum and the replacement of the Sope Creek bridge on Paper Mill Road that will affect East Cobb traffic this summer.
Sweeney's SPLOST advocacy was in the news earlier this week. State law mandates that public officials cannot lobby for or against a referendum in public facilities, including schools, or use taxpayer resources to do so.
The Marietta Daily Journal recently detailed the Sope Creek bridge repairs, which will require closing that portion of Paper Mill Road for four months, starting in May.
More information and resources pertaining to that project will be outlined and made available to citizens at the town hall meeting.
District 3 commissioner JoAnn Birrell also will hold her town hall meeting on Tuesday, starting at 7 p.m. in the Board of Commissioners office at 100 Cherokee Street.
She will be updating citizens on changes to the state's car tag tax changes.
Birrell also is scheduled to speak before the East Cobb Civic Association on Feb. 27.
