The Cobb County Board of Commissioners released its meeting schedule for 2024. The schedule includes:

  • The regular meetings where the business of the county is conducted, including ordinances, planning and funding decisions, and resolutions
  • Agenda work sessions where the agendas are finalized before the regular meetings
  • Work sessions that allow important issues to be considered in detail without making the regular meetings unmanageably long
  •  Zoning meetings, where the BOC makes decisions on zoning cases after the Planning Commission has made a recommendation

All the meetings are available on live stream (and afterward on recorded video) except the Agenda Work Sessions. See the schedule notes below for instructions on how to access the videos. All meetings are open to the public.

We’ve reprinted the schedule and the schedule notes from the announcement on the Cobb County website:
