On March 15, 2011, a referendum on a four-year SPLOST (Special Local Option Sales Tax) was approved by voters. This program will be in effect from Jan. 1, 2012 through Dec. 31, 2015.

Every project funded by the 2011-15 SPLOST will improve the quality of life in Cobb County by maintaining, improving and enhancing County parks, transportation, infrastructure, public safety, libraries, senior services, judicial and public health facilities.

As a result, Cobb County will be a better place to live, work, and play.
