Cobb County and Six Cities Enter Historic Mediation at Marietta Hilton
MDJ Script/ Top Stories for July 18th               Publish Date:  July 18th      Commercial: GON :30 From the Ingles Studio, Welcome to the Marietta Daily Journal Podcast.    Today is Thursday, July 18th and Happy heavenly Birthday to astronaut John Glenn. ***07.18.24 – BIRTHDAY – JOHN GLENN*** I’m Dan Radcliffe and here are the stories Cobb is talking about, presented by Credit Union of Georgia.  1. Cobb County and Six Cities Enter Historic Mediation at Marietta Hilton 2. Cobb School Board to Set Millage Rate 3. Cobb Denies Austell Man Selling Antiques from Home   Plus, Bruce Jenkins sits down with Leah McGrath from Ingles Markets on seedless watermelons.   All of this and more is coming up on the Marietta Daily Journal Podcast, and if you are looking for community news, we encourage you to listen and subscribe!    BREAK: CU of GA STORY 1: ‘Historic’: Cobb County and Cities Enter Mediation [https://www.mdjonline.com/news/local/historic-cobb-county-and-cities-enter-mediation/article_b367085c-444b-11ef-bbe2-5fe3b084fd70.html]  In a historic development, Cobb County and its six cities are undergoing formal mediation for the first time under state law regarding Service Delivery Strategy Agreements. Held at the Marietta Hilton, the mediation aims to resolve disputes over how services and funding are distributed between the county and cities, crucial for state compliance. Issues include differing interpretations of duplicate services and fiscal responsibilities, with potential consequences like loss of state funding if no agreement is reached by October 31. Mableton, transitioning to cityhood, observes closely as its services depend on the mediation's outcome. STORY 2: Cobb Scholl Board to Set Milage Rate [https://www.mdjonline.com/news/education/cobb-school-board-to-set-millage-rate/article_fed0c0d0-4374-11ef-a71f-d3e1aa37a591.html]  The Cobb County Board of Education is set to decide on maintaining a flat millage rate of 18.7 mills for 2024, despite rising property values expected to bring in an additional $54.96 million in tax revenue, a 7.32% increase from last year. While this won’t increase taxes, homeowners could see an average increase of $255.17 in property taxes for a $450,000 home. Debate among board members includes potential implications of rolling back the millage rate to mitigate tax hikes, amid community concerns over tax burdens and budget allocations already in place. Public input will influence the final decision at tonight’s meeting. STORY 3: Cobb Denies Austell Man Selling Antiques from Home [https://www.mdjonline.com/news/local/cobb-denies-austell-man-selling-antiques-from-home/article_d3bcfd88-43b4-11ef-a3f4-13251c49511c.html] This week, the Cobb Board of Commissioners rejected Edwin Stafford’s request to operate an antique store and yard sale from his home on Austell Powder Springs Road. Stafford sought a 24-month permit to sell antiques on weekends after complaints from neighbors and businesses about his previous unauthorized sales. Despite Stafford’s plea that this business was his livelihood, Commissioner Monique Sheffield cited ongoing violations of county codes and noted that Stafford’s activities didn’t fit the area’s development plans, which aim to attract more structured businesses. The board unanimously denied Stafford’s application, leaving him to consider alternatives for sustaining his business. We have opportunities for sponsors to get great engagement on these shows.

The fast-food chain, aiming to establish its fifth Cobb County location, faced delays due to incomplete architectural landscaping plans. Issues arose regarding compliance with Cobb County Tree Ordinance parking lot tree standards, requiring adjustments such as additional parking lot peninsulas. The proposed site plan conflicts with prior land-use restrictions prohibiting fast-food restaurants and drive-thru services, stipulated in a settlement with Sembler Retail and Sembler Family Partnership in 1999. The matter will be reconsidered at the next zoning hearing on August 20.
