WellStar Cobb Hospital in Austell is an excellent asset to our community. It is a full service
medical and surgical hospital that originally opened in 1968. The Womens Center was added in
1992 and the hospital joined WellStar in 1994. Recent renovations to the Womens Center and
ICU/CCU and IP Burn Unit provide state-of-the-art facilities for quality healthcare services.
The $1.5 million renovation of the ICU was completed in 2013 and the $5.1 million renovation
of the Womens Center will be completed in August 2015. This 382 licensed bed hospital

WellStar Health System is a not-for-profit system recognized as a national leader in
comprehensive care. It serves more than 1.4 million residents in metro Atlanta and more

DATE:

July 14, 2015

PURPOSE
To request that the Board of Commissioners conduct the first public hearing on the 2015 proposed property tax
increase as defined by Georgia law.

BACKGROUND
According to Georgia law, taxing authorities must advertise a tax increase and hold three public meetings
when the proposed millage rate is over the calculated rollback rate.
When the total digest of taxable property is prepared, Georgia law requires that a rollback millage rate be
computed according to specific instructions issued by the Georgia Department of Revenue. This hypothetical
rollback millage rate would have produced the same total tax revenue on the current years digest that last
years millage rate would have produced had no reassessments occurred.
The partial recovery of the Cobb real estate market is the primary reason for this modest growth in property
values and this corresponding increase in the countys property tax digest.
The proposed rates are higher than the recently computed rollback millage rates. Therefore, before the
Cobb County Board of Commissioners may finalize the FY 2015 budgeted revenues and set the final 2015
millage rates, Georgia law requires that three public hearings be held to allow the public an opportunity to
express their opinions on the increase.
Although the Cobb County Board of Commissioners is proposing to decrease the property tax millage rate of
the General Fund from 7.32 to 7.12, leave the Fire millage rate unchanged at 3.06, leave the Debt Service
Fund (Bond Fund) millage rate unchanged at 0.33, to decrease the property tax millage rate for the
Cumberland Special Services District II from 2.70 to 2.60, and establish the Six Flags Special Services
District millage rate at 3.50, State law requires the County to advertise a Tax Increase in the press and on
the countys website.

PURPOSE
To determine that circumstances are such that it is necessary to proceed with condemnation
proceedings by Declaration of Taking under O.C.G.A. 32-3-4, et seq., on three parcels on
Lower Roswell Road (West), Project No. D6130.

BACKGROUND
Lower Roswell Road (West), from South Marietta Parkway/SR120 to Terrell Mill Road, is an
approved roadway safety and operational improvements project in the 2005 SPLOST
Transportation Improvements Program (TIP).
The project consists of widening Lower Roswell Road from approximately 425 feet east of
South Marietta Parkway to Holt Road. Widening includes extending a second eastbound
through lane to Clearwater Drive, and adding a two-way left turn lane from approximately 425
feet east of South Marietta Parkway to Old Sewell Road. Improvements include construction of
a right turn lane, extension of the existing left turn lane for Sedalia Park Elementary School, and
the addition of a right turn lane for East Valley Elementary School. A right turn exit lane
will also be constructed at Sewell Park. The project will also add five-foot wide sidewalks on
both sides of Lower Roswell Road within the project limits, which is a distance of
approximately 1.1 miles. Additional rights-of-way and easements are needed to construct this
project.
Right-of-way funding for this project is available in the 2005 SPLOST TIP Fund approved
budget.

PURPOSE
To determine that circumstances are such that it is necessary to proceed with condemnation
proceedings by Declaration of Taking under O.C.G.A. 32-3-4, et seq., on two parcels on Six
Flags Drive, Project No. E6090.

BACKGROUND
Six Flags Drive, from Factory Shoals Road to Riverside Parkway, is an approved
roadway safety and operational improvements project in the 2011 SPLOST Transportation
Improvements Program (TIP).
The project consists of minor widening to include construction of curb and gutter and a fivefoot wide sidewalk along the north side of Six Flags Drive, from Factory Shoals Road
to Riverside Parkway. The project scope also includes adding a raised median designed for safer
pedestrian street crossings. The total project length is 0.64 miles.
On March 25, 2014, the Board of Commissioners held a public hearing and approved road name
changes in the Six Flags Area. This project lies within an area along Six Flags Drive that will be
renamed Riverside Parkway, effective Fall 2015.
Additional rights-of-way and easements are needed to construct this project. Right-ofway funding for this project is available in the 2011 SPLOST TIP Fund approved budget.

Agenda Item Number. 2

Negotiations with the property owners are ongoing; however, in order to ensure project
deadlines are met, the Department is requesting condemnation approval by the Board of
Commissioners in the event negotiations are unsuccessful, and the Land Acquisition Review
Committee, consisting of the Departments Development Services, Right-of-Way and
Construction staff, and the Countys Legal personnel, recommends condemnation actions be
filed.
Under appropriate circumstances, as are more fully set forth under the provisions of O.C.G.A.
32-3-4, the County is authorized to acquire real property interests by the Declaration of Taking
method. It is appropriate for the County to use this method for reasons including, but not
limited to, a desire for judicial ascertainment of all issues pertaining to the acquisition.

N/A

RECOMMENDATION
The Board of Commissioners determine that circumstances are such that it is necessary to
proceed with condemnation proceedings by Declaration of Taking under O.C.G.A. 32-3-4, et
seq.; authorize the commencement of condemnation proceedings on two parcels on Six Flags
Drive, Project No. E6090; adopt Resolutions and Orders in form substantially similar to the
attached, and as approved by the County Attorneys Office; and further authorize the Chairman
to execute the necessary documents.

PURPOSE
To authorize the establishment of a No Parking zone along the south side of Pete Shaw Road,
from Steinhauer Road to approximately 725 feet east.

BACKGROUND
Pete Shaw Road is a minor collector roadway on the County's Major Thoroughfare Plan, posted
for 30 MPH. Pete Shaw Road is bounded by Steinhauer Road on the west and Sandy Plains
Road on the east, and is located in Commission District 3. In the vicinity just east of Steinhauer
Road, Pete Shaw Road is approximately 22 feet wide, with new sidewalk along the north side
(including curb and gutter) and a grass shoulder along the south side. This area is generally the
length along the Cobb County Board of Education northern property line for Lassiter High
School (Lassiter).
The Department has been required to repeatedly perform maintenance to repair rutting and
general shoulder degradation along the south side of Pete Shaw Road due to parking on the
shoulder by patrons of the Lassiter athletic fields. Cobb County School District employees
assigned to Lassiter have confirmed that field patrons are instructed to park on school property,
where there is adequate parking, rather than along the grass shoulder of Pete Shaw Road.
Further discussions with Lassiter staff resulted in their support of a parking restriction along this
shoulder.
In accordance with the Official Code of Cobb County, Section 118, Article IV, Division I, the
Department recommends establishment of a No Parking zone along the south side of Pete
Shaw Road, from Steinhauer Road to approximately 725 feet east, along the northern property
line for Lassiter.

PURPOSE
To authorize the establishment of a No Parking zone along both sides of White Road, from
White Circle to the cul-de-sac approximately 960 feet east of White Circle.

BACKGROUND
White Road is a local, dead-end street, posted for 25 MPH, that runs parallel with Old 41
Highway. White Road is adjacent to Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park (KMNBP)
and is located in Commission District 3. This street is approximately 20 feet wide and 960 feet
long, from White Circle to the cul-de-sac.
Currently, the only developed property along White Road is commercial and is occupied by an
acoustical tile distribution facility. This facility ships and receives materials using regular daily
and weekly delivery trucks every day of the week. The Department has received complaints
that delivery trucks are experiencing issues navigating White Road due to on-street parking that
is occurring on both sides of the street during weekdays and on weekends. Subsequent
Department investigations confirmed a need to address this concern. Further discussion of this
concern with the KMNBP, as the adjacent property owner, resulted in their support of a parking
restriction along the affected section of White Road.
In accordance with the Official Code of Cobb County, Section 118, Article IV, Division I, the
Department recommends establishment of a No Parking zone along both sides of White Road,
from White Circle to the cul-de-sac approximately 960 feet east of White Circle.

PURPOSE
To approve a contract with SHI International Corp. for an Enterprise Backup and Recovery
Solution and authorize the purchase of computer hardware and associated software to improve
data disaster recovery capabilities.

BACKGROUND
Cobb Countys current Enterprise Backup Solution was implemented in 2004 and was upgraded
in 2006 and 2010. In recent years, Cobb County has experienced an increased demand for server
virtualization, newer applications, larger volumes of backup data, newer technology, and
increased requirements for greater uptimes and shorter recovery times. The current system is
increasingly challenged in its ability to backup and restore our current systems, applications,
files, and databases in a timely manner. Restoring a file or database can take from hours to
weeks, depending on the size of the data needing to be restored. This timeframe no longer meets
the business requirements of our customers. The backup system is composed of many
components which add to the overall complexity of administration.
On November 25, 2014, the Board of Commissioners approved FY14 Reserves including
$1,579,000.00 for a County Enterprise Backup Replacement/Upgrade that will reduce
administration and restore data in timeframes satisfactory to our customers.
A Request for Proposals, Sealed Bid #15-6032, for Enterprise Backup and Recovery Solution
was advertised in The Marietta Daily Journal on March 27, April 3, April 10, and April 17,
2015. Proposals were opened on April 23, 2015. Proposals were received from seven
firms. The evaluation committee included David Digiovanni of Marietta City Schools, Andy
McNicol of Wellstar, Bill Thomas of the Purchasing Department, and Chris Johnson and Ed
Biggs of the Information Services Department. SHI International Corp. was selected as the topranked proposer for the following reasons: the proposed solution met all the technical
Page 82 of 240

requirements, vendors project management approach and experience with implementing a


similar solution in a comparable environment, proposed solution is hardware agnostic, and
cost.
The Department requests approval of a contract with SHI International Corp., in an amount not
to exceed $966,729.00, to provide an Enterprise Backup and Recovery Solution.
There are additional steps that Cobb County can take to improve our data disaster recovery
capabilities. To ensure data replication and recovery capabilities are available, there is a need to
purchase additional hardware and software to augment the new Enterprise Backup and
Recovery Solution. The estimated cost to purchase this additional disaster recovery hardware
and associated software is $195,000.00.
The total cost of the Enterprise Backup and Recovery Solution and disaster recovery hardware
and associated software is $1,161,729.00. Funds are available in the operating budget of the
Information Services Department.

IMPACT STATEMENT
Hardware and software maintenance fees totaling $200,588.00 for five years are included in the
approved contract with SHI. Funding for maintenance after the initial five years will be
requested in the operating budget of the Information Services Department beginning in FY20.
Maintenance fees for the additional disaster recovery hardware and associated software are
estimated to be $39,000.00 annually. Funding will be requested in the operating budget of the
Information Services Department beginning in FY17.

Supply was the low bidder for three of the categories. The department wishes to utilize both
vendors to fully equip the police vehicles.

PURPOSE
To authorize the purchase of one tractor-drawn aerial (tiller) ladder truck from Pierce
Manufacturing and to authorize the related budget transactions.

BACKGROUND
Cobb County Fire & Emergency Services (CCFES) currently faces challenges maneuvering its
existing aerial ladder apparatus within many of the newer mixed-use areas within Cobb County,
which has an impact on the effective firefighting capabilities in those areas. CCFES wishes to
purchase an apparatus for areas where a ladder truck is essential for firefighting/rescue
operations such as Cumberland and Vinings. This apparatus would be ordered in FY15, and
the scheduled delivery of the truck would be September, 2016.
DeKalb County Fire and Rescue Services Department is currently purchasing this type of
apparatus from Pierce Manufacturing, and Pierce has committed to honor its DeKalb bid price
to Cobb County until August 1, 2015. CCFES wishes to move forward with the purchase of an
identical apparatus since it meets our exact specifications. Additionally, the 20 year old reserve
ladder apparatus presently in service was manufactured by a company which is no longer in
business, and presents significant maintenance costs. This reserve apparatus would be sold by
Cobb County.
The purchase of this apparatus will require the creation of three new Fire Driver/Engineer
positions (grade 53) beginning in March, 2016 (13 bi-weeklies) for a total of $134,241.30. The
initial cost for training, uniforms and safety equipment in the amount of $19,805.00 must also
be included for these three positions.

PURPOSE
To approve an amended and restated 800 MHz Radio System User License Agreements with
each City within Cobb County and other authorized users.

BACKGROUND
The 800 MHz radio system (Radio System) is the Countys state of the art public safety digital
voice and data radio communication system. It is the communication lifeline for law
enforcement, fire and emergency medical service, and other public safety first responder
operations. The Radio System is designed to support local county operations, mutual aid or
incidents within our cities and other first responders, and with non-county first responders in the
Metro Atlanta area, such as Georgia State Patrol. The Radio Systems core is contained within
the E911 center and repeater sites assure radio coverage throughout the County.
After the Radio System went operational in 1995, the County entered into separate 800 MHz
Radio System User License Agreements (Agreements) with each City located in Cobb County
and other authorized users (Authorized Users). The Authorized Users include emergency
responders such as ambulance providers and hospitals, as well as educational institutions and
identified high population threat risk facility. These Agreements provide for the Authorized
Users to operate their radios on the Countys Radio System in return for the Authorized Users
payments of their pro rata share (based on number of radios on the System) the Radio Systems
anticipated core replacement cost and on-going core maintenance costs, and their agreement to
abide by policies and procedures related to the use of the Radio System, including but not
limited to security, training, and Federal Communications Commission regulations.

Agenda Item Number. 23

The initial agreements contained an automatic renewal period of ten years that begins on
October 1, 2015. The County and the Authorized Users now desire to amend and update the
Agreement for the renewal period of October 1, 2015 through September 30, 2025.
Negotiations with the Authorized Users have resulted in the Amended and Restated Agreement
copies of which are provided under separate cover. The Amended and Restated Agreement
includes terms that require the Authorized Users to contribute their pro rata share of costs
associated with future core replacement, maintenance, and scheduled upgrades, and requiring
the Authorized Users to abide by terms related to use of the Radio System, training, etc.

IMPACT STATEMENT
All future necessary funding requirements will be brought under separate agenda items.

did in fact look at the underage volunteers drivers license, which was an Under 21 vertical drivers
license with a year of birth of 1995. Sgt. Smith stated that the underage volunteer left the store
with the beer, which was taken directly to Det. Argano who was in the parking lot. Sgt. Smith
stated that she identified herself to the clerk as a police officer and informed her that she had sold
alcohol to an underage person. Sgt. Smith explained that the clerk told her that the year of birth on
the drivers license was 1995. Sgt. Smith stated that she immediately pointed to the sticker on the
counter of the store that had 1994 was the birth year required to purchase alcohol. Sgt. Smith
also stated that Ms. Lims alcohol permit was expired, and had been since February 2014. Sgt.
Smith stated that once she determined that Ms. Lims permit was expired she asked to speak with
the manager. Sgt. Smith stated that Ms. Lim made a phone call and Mr. Thomas Lim, the licensee

Sgt. Smith stated that Det. Argano entered the business and returned the beer and the change from
the beer purchase, and he retrieved the marked twenty dollar bill used to purchase the beer. Sgt.
Smith stated that she issued a citation to Ms. Lim for selling alcohol to a minor and for expired

to renew her permit, but her renewal was denied based on the violation that occurred the day
before. Det. Argano explained to the License Review Board that since the date of the violation he
has been back to the store on two separate occasions and observed Ms. Lim working in the store.
Det. Argano explained that on June 4, 2015 he went into the store to make a purchase and Ms. Lim
was at the counter working. He stated that he told her that he had to go to the car to get some
money and when he returned Ms. Lim was no longer behind the counter. On June 15, 2015 Det.
Argano returned to the store and again Ms. Lim was working in the store stocking shelves. Det.
Argano emphasized to the Board that all employees of convenience stores are required to possess a

tried to rectify the alcohol permit issue immediately, but was denied due to the violation. Mr. Grable
pointed out that the underage sale citation had not been adjudicated. Mr. Grable explained that Mr.
and Ms. Lim were in a detrimental financial situation because they have lost a lot of money. Mr.
Grable further explained that the Lims also had a bad experience with an employee stealing from
them costing them more money. Mr. Grable stated that the Lims had decided to operate the
business themselves because they cannot afford to pay staff. Mr. Grable explained to the License
Review Board that immediately prior to the underage sale Ms. Lim was dealing with a customer who
was causing her great stress over a lottery purchase. Mr. Grable stated that Mr. Lim works fourteen
to sixteen hour days and Ms. Lim works twelve to fourteen hour days. Mr. Grable also explained
that a Shell station had opened nearby Quik Go Enterprises and they have lost a lot of customers,
resulting in further financial hardship. Mr. Grable stated that if Ms. Lim cannot work in the store
that Mr. Lim will have to close because he cannot operate the store alone and because he cannot
afford staff.

Mr. Lim confirmed that only he and his wife work in the store.
Mr. Grable stated that Mr. Lim is 100% owner of the business.
Mr. Lim stated that he had to make his daughter quit her job and come work in the store since his
wife cannot work the counter. Mr. Lim stated that his wife is still working in the store but she is
only stocking shelves and coolers, and he admitted that she works the counter when he needs to go
to the restroom. Mr. Lim stated that his wife does not have a permit but he cannot afford to lose
her.
License Review Board member, Jim Pehrson, asked Mr. Lim if it was his intention to have his wife
work in the store without a permit, and he replied yes.
Sam Hensley, attorney for the License Review Board, explained to Mr. Lim that he and Ms. Lim could
be cited every single day that she works without an alcohol permit. He further explained that the
alcohol permit requirement could not be waived by the License Review Board.
License Review Board member, Larry Walker, reiterated that Ms. Lim should not be working in the
store at all without an alcohol permit. Mr. Lim stated that he was not aware that all employees of
convenience stores were required to possess permits. Mr. Lim stated he thought that permits were

PURPOSE
To approve a contract with The Public Financial Management, Inc. for financial advisory
services.

BACKGROUND
On May 28, 2015, the County accepted responses to a Request for Proposal (RFP) to provide
Financial Advisory Services. Services provision is for a period of three years with an option to
extend for two years at the discretion of the County. Proposals were received from Davenport
& Company, First Tryon Advisors and Public Financial Management, Inc.
An evaluation committee composed of Bill Volckmann and Buddy Tesar from Finance &
Economic Development, Judy Sheppard from Information Services, Judy Jones from Water and
Bill Thomas from Purchasing reviewed the proposals. The selection method used was the
"Competitive Proposals" method in which pricing is an important criteria but not the only
criteria for selection.
The evaluation committee determined that The Public Financial Management, Inc. (PFM)
submitted the most competitive proposal based on staffing, experience, approach to services,
availability and financial stability. Scoring for cost was then calculated independently and
added to the cumulative score for each bidder. PFM received the highest aggregate score based
on all of the selection criteria.
PFM is a national firm that specializes in financial advisor services to state and local
governments. Its representative to the County, Dianne McNabb, has serviced the County's
financial advisory needs for a number of years.

PURPOSE
To amend the Program Year 2013, 2014, and 2015 Annual Action Plans to reallocate
Community Development Block Grant funds from the Cobb County Housing Rehabilitation
Program and the Marietta Youth Empowerment through Learning, Leading, and Serving public
facility renovation project to other eligible projects.

BACKGROUND

During the 2016 Applications Cycle, the CDBG Program Office advertised and accepted
applications for shovel-ready public facility projects that could begin immediately and expend
funds by October 30, 2015. This strategy was implemented to ensure that shovel-ready
projects were identified immediately so that the County is able to continue to meet HUDs
expenditure deadlines. Based on this, the CDBG Program Office is recommending approval of
the following project applications: The Extension for plumbing repairs, the Center for Children
and Young Adults for security upgrades, and the YWCA of Northwest Metro Atlanta for
parking lot and retaining wall repairs.
Funding for the above projects will be reallocated from Marietta Youth Empowerment through
Learning, Leading, and Serving ($100,000) and the Cobb County Housing Rehabilitation
Program ($100,000). Marietta Youth Empowerment through Learning, Leading, and Serving
was unable to secure additional financing necessary to commence the project and therefore was
unable to utilize CDBG funding. The organization was notified via written correspondence that
CDBG funds would be reallocated to other eligible shovel ready CDBG projects.
Additionally, to ensure the County remains in compliance with HUD expenditure requirements
for PY2015, the CDBG Program Office recommends reallocation of Housing Rehabilitation
funds in the amount of $100,000. The Housing Rehabilitation program is sufficiently funded for
this grant year and is currently accepting new applications for housing rehabilitation assistance.

period that concluded on Monday, July 6, 2015. This amendment was reviewed at a public
review meeting on Thursday, June 11, 2015. No public comments were received.

IMPACT STATEMENT
Community Development Block Grant funds have been provided to Cobb County by the U.S.
Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the reallocation of these funds is
permissible under HUD guidelines. All citizen participation guidelines have been met via public
notice and public review meeting. The amount of this reallocation of funds constitutes a
substantial amendment. There will be no impact to the General Fund.

PURPOSE
To amend Program Year 2015 Annual Action Plan project allocations based upon the final grant
allocations for Community Development Block Grant programs for the City of Marietta and the
City of Smyrna.

BACKGROUND
On April 14, 2015 the Board of Commissioners approved a final budget for the City of Marietta
and the City of Smyrna Program Year (PY) 2015 Community Development Block Grant
(CDBG) program. The final budget was approved without specific projects identified by the
City of Marietta and the City of Smyrna. Each of the cities has now identified specific projects
based upon final allocations from U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)
in the amount of $527,574 for the City of Marietta and $301,093 for the City of Smyrna. The
identified projects are shown in Attachment A.
All citizen participation activities were carried out in compliance with HUD requirements. A
public notice was published on Friday, April 24, 2015 commencing a 30 day public comment
period that concluded on Monday, May 25, 2015. This amendment was reviewed at a public
review meeting on Wednesday, May 6, 2015 during which no public comments were received.

IMPACT STATEMENT
HUD will provide 100 percent of federal funds for eligible CDBG activities. Cobb County will
not have to provide General Fund matching resources for these grants. CDBG funding is
appropriated annually by Congress, with no guarantee of renewal or level funding next year.
Pre-awards are made subject to receipt of adequate CDBG funding. All funds will be provided
by HUD and the reallocation of funds is permissible under HUD guidelines.

PURPOSE
To ratify previous action of the County Manager authorizing entering into a professional
services contract on an emergency basis to expedite the design of a replacement concession
restroom building destroyed by fire at Lost Mountain Park.

BACKGROUND
The lower hub complex at Lost Mountain Park is composed of three softball fields and one
baseball field. The lower hub works in concert with the five field upper hub to support a very
active athletic program in the park, consisting of both recreational league play and revenue
generating tournament play. The park is heavily used by the public throughout the year.
On May 16, 2015, the building at the center of the lower hub complex was consumed by fire.
This building housed the concession, restrooms, storage, and electrical room serving the
surrounding fields. The second story of the building also housed the score keepers for each
field. The building is critical to the safe use by the public of, and proper operation of the
athletic program at the park, and must be replaced as quickly and efficiently as possible.
The County Manager directed staff to explore ways to replace this building in the most
expedient manner consistent with applicable law and County policies. To speed design and
permitting, staff promptly evaluated a variety of options. Staff proposed modifying a building
design that was successfully used at Sewell Park in 2014 as the best building for these
purposes. That building was designed by Foreman Seeley Fountain Architects. This firm has
proven to be responsive to the County's needs, thorough in their designs and construction
administration, and fair in their pricing. Foreman Seeley Fountain Architects presented a
proposal in the amount of $67,000.00 which includes architectural design of the new building,
related civil engineering, and construction administration services.

Agenda Item Number. 1

State law provides that public works construction contracts may be let on an emergency basis
without a formal bidding process when the nature of the emergency is described in the minutes
and the contract is ratified by the board (O.C.G.A. 36-91-22 [e]). An emergency is described
as any situation resulting in imminent danger to the public health or safety or the loss of an
essential governmental service (O.C.G.A. 36-91-2 [7]). The Cobb County Policy for
Procurement of Professional Services provides an exception from the applicable selection
process, when it is in the County's best interest, and when there are severe time constraints or an
emergency, with subsequent ratification by the Board of Commissioners (Policy for
Procurement of Professional Services, Article X.B.1. and 2).
Staff believes that the replacement of the lower hub building is critical to the safe use of this
park by the public. The County Manager has approved and executed a contract with Foreman
Seeley Fountain in order to expedite the design and subsequent re-construction of the hub
building to promote the safe use and operation of Lost Mountain Park.

FUNDING
Funding is available in the fund:
710-055-8011-6605

$67,000.00

RECOMMENDATION
The Board of Commissioners ratify previous action of the County Manager authorizing entering
into a professional services contract on an emergency basis in order to expedite the design of a
replacement concession restroom building, destroyed by fire at Lost Mountain Park, to ensure
the proper operation and safe use of the park by the public.

PURPOSE
To approve a contract with Groover Fence Company for the replacement of backstops, and
repairs to fencing and related equipment to improve athletic field safety at Bells Ferry Park
under the 2011 Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs SPLOST Program.

BACKGROUND
Improvements to the athletic fields at Bells Ferry Park, 2334 Bells Ferry Road, Marietta, are an
approved renovation component of the 2011 Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs SPLOST
Program. Bells Ferry Park was originally developed in 1975. Although they have been repaired
from time to time over the years, the backstops on three softball fields have outlived their
service life and must be replaced. In addition, selected repairs will be made to dugouts, gates,
and other field fencing components. These replacements and repairs will increase safety for
players, coaches, and spectators.
On September 10, 2013, following a competitive bidding process, the County approved a
county-wide Annual Contract with Groover Fence Company. This contract was renewed on
September 10, 2014. Groover Fence Company has presented a proposal totaling $106,103.60,
which references approved unit prices for materials, equipment and labor, in order to complete
the project scope. Because this expenditure will exceed $50,000.00 in SPLOST funding, Parks,
Recreation and Cultural Affairs is requesting Board of Commissioners approval.

PURPOSE
To approve Supplemental Agreement No. 3 to the contract with John W. Spratlin and Son, LLC
for additional construction services related to the 2011 SPLOST and the 2016 SPLOST projects
at the Health Department Annex B and the Health Department Headquarters and authorize
acceptance of funding from the Health Department.

BACKGROUND
The project to renovate the Health Department Annex B (former Juvenile Court building)
located at 1738 County Services Parkway and the existing Health Department Headquarters
(HQ) building located at 1650 County Services Parkway was approved by the citizens in the
2011 SPLOST.
On April 8, 2014, the Board of Commissioners approved a contract with John W. Spratlin &
Son, LLC (Spratlin), in the amount of $4,713,000.00, to complete renovation of Annex B and
the renovation of approximately 50% of the first and second floors of the current HQ building.
On July 8, 2014, the Board approved Supplemental Agreement No. 1 to the contract with
Spratlin, in the amount of $116,767.00, which included some work that was not anticipated
originally, as well as some additional work required by the Health Department.

Page 198 of 240

Agenda Item Number. 1

On July 22, 2014, the Board approved Supplemental Agreement No. 2 to the contract with
Spratlin, in the amount of $139,903.00, for the replacement of the buildings exterior windows
with much larger units requested by the Health Department and authorized the acceptance of
funding, in the amount of $70,000.00, from the Health Department for a portion of the
Supplemental Agreement.
On September 23, 2014, the Board authorized the acceptance of additional funds from the
Health Department, in the amount of $41,580.00, for additional expenses incurred for wiring,
switches, and routers in the renovated facility. These costs were originally approved and funded
by the project contingency funds in Supplemental Agreement No. 1 on July 8, 2014.
This agenda item for Supplemental Agreement No. 3 includes three elements: Change Directive
No. 3, extra work required to obtain the Certificate of Occupancy for Annex B, and additional
renovations for the HQ, as explained below:
Change Directive No. 3, in the amount of $26,595.00, was authorized by the County
Manager on September 18, 2014, in order to minimize any delays. It includes certain electrical
and plumbing upgrades, as well as floor finish changes in multiple areas of the building.
Extra work required to obtain the Certificate of Occupancy for Annex B, in the amount
of $114,100.00, and 47 additional calendar days for wall revisions, additional smoke alarms,
emergency ballasts, and modifications to the fire sprinkler systems on the second floor. It also
includes a moveable wall, as well as changes and additions to flooring, cabinetry, HVAC
equipment, exit lights, motion sensors, heat tape to fire line and a credit for furniture
storage/extended lease.
Additional renovations for the HQ building, in the amount of $1,000,000.00, and no
additional calendar days involves work that was approved by the citizens in the 2016
SPLOST. The work scope, as defined with drawings from 2014, has been supplemented to meet
current requirements due to staff and program changes within the Cobb & Douglas Health
System. Changes include walls, floors, doors, lights, underslab plumbing lines to dentistry
chairs, fire alarm and other life safety systems.The 2016 SPLOST includes $2,000,000.00 that is
intended to be used on Annex B and the HQ; both facilities are part of the Contractors contract
for work designated in the 2011 SPLOST projects. It was determined by the Health Department
and County staff that efficiencies exist in proceeding with the Health Department Headquarters
construction work at this time utilizing the Contractor that is already under contract to renovate
approximately 50% of the building. It is the intent of the Health Department to utilize no more
than $1,000,000.00 for this portion of the work at the HQ site, so the scope of work was
determined and negotiated as such, to be within that budget. This proposed Supplemental
Agreement was discussed with and found to be acceptable to the Purchasing Director.
In order to proceed with this construction work, the Health Department has determined that they
will initially provide funding for the extra work required to obtain the Certificate of Occupancy
for Annex B, in the amount of $114,100.00, and the additional renovations for the HQ, in the
amount of $1,000,000.00. It is understood that priorities for the 2016 SPLOST projects are
currently being determined and the priority of the Health Department projects shall not be
affected by this decision of the Health Department to pre-fund the construction. The
reimbursement to the Health Department of the $1,114,100.00 shall be taken from the 2016
SPLOST County-wide allocation for Public Health.

PURPOSE
To adopt a resolution authorizing and directing the Investment Fund Depository under the Bond
Resolutions for the Cobb County, Georgia Water & Sewerage Revenue Bonds.

BACKGROUND
Cobb County (the "County") has previously adopted the W&S Bond Resolutions with respect to multiple
series of Cobb County Water and Sewerage Revenue Bonds. As initially adopted on October 30, 1985,
and as supplemented and amended (the "W&S Bond Resolutions"), to purchase in a direct private
placement the "Cobb County, Georgia General Obligation Tax Anticipation Notes, Series 2015" in the
original aggregate principal amount of $30,000,000.00 (the "TANs"), as a "Permitted Investment" under
the W&S Bond Resolutions. Pursuant to the W&S Bond Resolutions, moneys may be transferred from
the Revenue Fund, the Construction Fund, or the Renewal and Extension Fund (as each fund is defined
in the W&S Bond Resolutions) to the Investment Fund held by the Investment Fund Depository under
the W&S Bond Resolutions to be held, managed, invested and reinvested by Investment Fund
Depository in "Permitted Investments" at the direction of the County. The County's Municipal Advisor
and Bond Counsel have determined and agree that the purchase of the TANs by the W&S Investment
Fund Depository is a "Permitted Investment" under the W&S Bond Resolutions.
Upon the advice of the County's Financial Advisor, the TANs will bear interest at a rate equal to the
most recent monthly interest rate set by the State's Local Government Investment Pool ("LGIP"),
expected to be the rate set by the LGIP in early July, which rate the County's Municipal Advisor has
determined to be a fair and appropriate market interest rate for the TANs given the circumstances and
terms of the TANs financing.

FUNDING
Available funds held in the Investment Fund under the W&S Bond Resolutions will be applied to
purchase the TANs.

PURPOSE
To adopt a resolution approving the issuance of the South Cobb Redevelopment Authority
Revenue Bonds, Six Flags Area Special Services Redevelopment Projects, Series 2015.

BACKGROUND
The County formed the Six Flags Area Special Services District (the "District") on November 11, 2014
in order to improve and facilitate the delivery of certain local government services within the boundaries
of the District and thereby facilitate needed redevelopment in the District. The South Cobb
Redevelopment Authority (the "Authority") requested that the County work with the Authority on plans
for various redevelopment and infrastructure improvement projects within the District, including,
without limitation, acquisition of improved and unimproved land for redevelopment, landscape
improvements, lighting improvements, way finding signage and certain other redevelopment and
infrastructure improvements (collectively, to the extent approved by the County to be financed in whole
or in part by the proceeds of the Bonds, the "Projects").
In order to finance the Projects, the Authority will issue the South Cobb Redevelopment Authority
Revenue Bonds (Six Flags Area Special Services District Redevelopment Projects), Series 2015 (the
"Series 2015 Bonds") pursuant to the Authority's authorizing legislation, the State's Revenue Bond Law,
and the Trust Indenture between the Authority and the bond trustee approved by the County (the "Trust
Indenture"), in an aggregate principal amount not to exceed $10,000,000.

In connection with the Authority's issuance of the Series 2015 Bonds to finance the Projects, the County
and the Authority will enter in to an Intergovernmental Agreement Regarding Contract Payments (the
"IGA Regarding Contract Payments") whereby, among other matters, the County and the Authority will

with the Trust Indenture to pay in whole or in part the costs of the Projects and the costs of issuance of
the Series 2015 Bonds, and the County will agree to pay to or for the account of the Authority an amount

PURPOSE
To adopt a Resolution authorizing the issuance of the Cobb County, Georgia General Obligation
Tax Anticipation Notes, Series 2015.

BACKGROUND
Cobb County (the "County") provides services to its citizens throughout its fiscal year, but does
not collect property taxes to fund those services until after the close of its fiscal year. The billing
and collection of taxes "in arrears", though in conformance with Georgia law, results in the
depletion of the Countys operating funds midway through the fiscal year. The County satisfies
its need for operating funds by issuing $30,000,000 in original aggregate principal amount of
Cobb County, Georgia General Obligation Tax Anticipation Notes, Series 2015 (the
'TAN's"). Interest on the TANs is tax-exempt which, coupled with their low risk and the
Countys superior credit rating, has historically made them attractive to investors. The practice
of issuing TANs has been followed since the early 1980s and provides attractive borrowing
rates to the County.
On December 18, 2014, the Board of Commissioners authorized the Finance DirectorComptroller, acting with the assistance of The PFM Group, the County's Financial Advisor, and
Butler Snow LLP, Bond Counsel, to proceed with all steps necessary for the issuance of the
TANs. Since that time, the Finance Director-Comptroller, the County's Financial Advisor and
Bond Counsel have worked together to develop a new financing plan for the TANs tailored to
the current circumstance of the County, and documents to support the issuance of the TANs in
accordance with the new financing plan have been prepared and reviewed by members of
County staff including the County Attorney, as well as the Countys Financial Advisor and
Bond Counsel, after which they were forwarded to the rating agencies.

Agenda Item Number. 3

The TANs have historically been sold to an underwriter in a competitive public bid; pursuant to
this year's financing plan, however, the County will sell the TANs in a direct private placement
to the Cobb County Water and Sewerage Investment Fund Depository (the "W&S Investment
Fund Depository") as a "Permitted Investment" of money held in the Investment Fund (the
"W&S Investment Fund") under and in accordance with the County's bond resolutions for its
several outstanding parity issues of Cobb County Water and Sewerage Revenue Bonds
(respectively, the "W&S Bond Resolutions" and the "W&S Bonds"). The TANs will be issued
during July 2015 and bear interest at a rate per annum equal to the most recent monthly interest
rate set by the State of Georgia Local Government Investment Pool (the "LGIP"), as announced
by the LGIP in early July 2015, which LGIP interest rate has been determined by the County's
Financial Advisor to be a fair and appropriate market interest rate for the TANs given the
circumstances and terms of the TANs financing. The TANs will mature and be payable in full
on October 30, 2015 or upon earlier redemption in accordance with the TANs Resolution.

FUNDING
Interest earnings are included in Finance Department (General Fund) and Fire Fund budgets.
Interest expense is included in Finance Department (General Fund) and Fire Fund budgets.
Issuance costs have been budgeted in the Finance Department (General Fund) budget.

RECOMMENDATION
The Board of Commissioners adopt a Resolution authorizing the issuance of the Cobb County,
Georgia General Obligation Tax Anticipation Notes, Series 2015, which among other matters,
includes the following stipulations;

Authorizes the issuance of the $30,000,000 in original aggregate principal amount


of "Cobb County, Georgia General Obligation Tax Anticipation Notes, Series 2015"
and establishes the payment terms of the TANs;
Authorizes the direct private placement sale of the TANS to the Cobb County Water
and Sewerage Investment Fund Depository as a "Permitted Investment" of money
held in the W&S Investment Fund under the County's W&S Bond Resolutions; and
Authorizes the Chairman to execute the necessary documents.
