map of Cobb CountyMap of Cobb County from Open Street Maps

This is a list of government meetings that have been announced on the websites of Cobb County and the six cities within the county. If there are any meetings we’ve left out that you are interested in adding to the list, just email the editor at

We’re focusing this first installment of our weekly listing on government meetings, but we’d be glad to add other organizations if there is interest, and if the organization posts an updated calendar we can get to easily.

If there is a link to the agenda for the meeting, we’ll link to it, but often agendas change in work sessions immediately prior to a meeting, so if you want to attend a meeting it’s a good practice to check the agenda online again soon before you leave.
