PURPOSE
To present proclamations to the Daughters of the American Revolution and the Cobb County
Republican Women's Club in recognition of Constitution Day on September 17, 2015, and
Constitution Week from September 17-23, 2015.

BACKGROUND
Constitution Day and Citizenship Day is observed each year on September 17 to commemorate
the signing of the Constitution on September 17, 1787, and "recognize all who, by coming of
age or by naturalization, have become citizens." Each year, the Cobb County Republican
Women's Club (CCRWC) spearheads efforts to distribute copies of the U.S. Constitution to
Cobb County and Marietta School students.
Constitution Week is the commemoration of America's most important document. It is
celebrated annually during the week of September 17-23. The United States Constitution stands
as a testament to the tenacity of Americans throughout history to maintain their liberties,
freedoms and inalienable rights.
In 1955, Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) petitioned Congress to set aside
September 17-23 annually to be dedicated for the observance of Constitution Week. The
resolution was later adopted by the U.S. Congress and signed into public law on August 2, 1956,
by President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
The aims of the Constitution Day and Constitution Week celebrations are to: emphasize citizens'
responsibilities for protecting and defending the Constitution, inform people that the
Constitution is the basis for America's great heritage and the foundation for our way of life and
to encourage the study of the historical events which led to the framing of the Constitution in
September 1787.

DATE:

September 8, 2015

PURPOSE
To approve a unit price contract with UWS, Inc. for FY16-FY17 Water Meter Changeout
Services (Residential / Light Commercial), Program No. MC2016.

BACKGROUND
The Cobb County Water System utilizes approximately 180,000 water meters as the basis for
billing of water and wastewater services throughout the County. About 95 percent of these serve
residential customers. As these meters age and parts become worn, they underreport actual
water usage, resulting in a reduction in the level of revenue collected by the Water System. It is
a typical, cost-effective utility practice to replace older meters with newer, more accurate
ones. Meters generally have a useful life of about 15 years. The Project consists of the
changeout of approximately 20,000 5/8-inch and 3/4-inch residential and light commercial
water meters. Contract duration includes FY16 and FY17 with provisions to extend for two
additional one-year periods. Large meters are handled under a separate contract.
Bids for residential meter replacement were received on August 13, 2015. The following
firms submitted responsive bids:
UWS, Inc.
The Dickerson Group, Inc.
Steele & Associates, Inc.
Metals & Materials Engineers, LLC
Vanguard Utility Services, Inc.
K. M. Davis Contracting Co., Inc.
Ray Campbell Contracting Co., Inc.

PURPOSE
To authorize acceptance of an easement from the United States Army Corps of Engineers which
is needed for the retention of a water line along Nance Road.

BACKGROUND
As a part of its recent Nance Road Project, the Cobb County Department of Transportation
realigned the bridge over Butler Creek. The United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE)
provided the additional right of way required for the shift, and Cobb County returned the portion
of the former right of way that is no longer needed to the USACE. A section of public water line
is included on the returned property. In order for the line to remain on what has now become
USACE property, the USACE has proposed to provide and the Water System proposes to accept
an easement for the existing water line alignment.

FUNDING

RECOMMENDATION
The Board of Commissioners authorize acceptance of an easement from the United States

PURPOSE
To approve a Project Framework Agreement with the Georgia Department of Transportation for
Powers Ferry Road Bicycle Lane Improvements, State P.I. No. 0012605, Cobb County Project
No. TR480.

BACKGROUND
Powers Ferry Road Bicycle Lane Improvements, from Interstate North Parkway to Windy
Ridge Road, is an approved project in the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) PLAN 2040
Regional Transportation Plan, designated as State P.I. No. 0012605, and ARC Project No. CO441.
The scope of this project is to widen Powers Ferry Road, from Interstate North Parkway to
Windy Ridge Parkway, to include four-foot wide bike lanes. This project will provide
connectivity with Interstate North Parkway Trail and Akers Mill Trail East, and will be
approximately 0.50 miles in length.
The Department is in receipt of a Project Framework Agreement from the Georgia Department
of Transportation for this project. Under the terms of the agreement, federal funding is available
for 80 percent of preliminary engineering, right-of-way, construction, and utility costs, in an
amount not to exceed $2,569,886.40. Cobb County will be responsible for a 20 percent local
match for preliminary engineering, right-of-way, construction, and utility costs, and 100 percent
of any costs that exceed the federal maximum.
As this project is located within the Cumberland Community Improvement District (CCID), the
CCID has agreed to fund the 20 percent local match required, and 100 percent of any costs that
exceed the federal maximum. A Cobb Framework Agreement (CFA) between the County and
the CCID for this project will be presented to the Board of Commissioners at a future date.

PURPOSE
To approve an updated fee schedule for digital data and mapping products, and to authorize
appropriation of the resulting revenue for use in maintaining, developing, and distributing the
GIS digital data and maintaining the Enterprise GIS System.

BACKGROUND
On January 22, 2002, the Board of Commissioners approved an agreement with Kucera
International, Inc. clarifying that Cobb County owns all copyrights to the photographs and maps
developed for the digital orthophoto base mapping project. On November 23, 2004, the Board
approved a fee schedule for map products and for licensing Cobb Countys digital base map and
digital Tax Assessor GIS parcel data.
On January 10, 2012, the Board approved an agreement with Pictometry International Corp. to
provide Web-based digital imagery to replace the base map update for 2012. Under the
agreement with Pictometry, Cobb County is able to sell ortho imagery. Since the Board
originally approved the fee schedule, there have been changes and updates made to the GIS
dataset.
On March 12, 2013, the Board approved an updated fee schedule to include a mosaic image file
of Cobb County, updated Tax Assessor tabular parcel data, DOT road centerline data, address
point data from the Cobb Address Repository, and voting precincts.
On November 12, 2013, the Board approved a contract with Kucera International, Inc. for new
imagery acquisition and also the creation of a new GIS database for countywide planimetrics
features. Urban planimetric features collected include: building outlines, sidewalks, driveways,
parking lots, paved roads, paved trails and other concrete features to assist with planning,
emergency management, and property assessments. This additional dataset is available for a
Page 25 of 158

fee through our existing Data Distribution policy.


Under the revised fee schedule, Cobb County will continue to provide its basic digital dataset at
no charge for download from the GIS webpage, Interactive Data Sales Mapping System, or
upon request. In addition, GIS digital data will continue to be provided at no charge to
companies or organizations having contracts or agreements to perform work for Cobb County.
The Department requests the Boards approval of the proposed fee schedule for digital data and
mapping products to include the addition of the urban planimetric features. Authorization is also
requested to appropriate all revenue received for the digital data and mapping products to the
GIS project for use in maintaining, developing, and distributing the GIS digital data.

FUNDING
Revenue and expense budget to be appropriated in the GIS Capital Project as it is received as
follows:
380-035-4639-xxxx

(Revenue)

380-035-4639-8005

(Expense)

RECOMMENDATION
The Board of Commissioners approve an updated fee schedule for the digital data and mapping
products; authorize appropriation of the resulting revenue as it is received for use in
maintaining, developing, and distributing the GIS digital data and maintaining the Enterprise
GIS System; and further authorize the corresponding budget transactions.

have been processed efficiently.
In each of the years since the commercial outsourcing began, the commercial tax digest has met
or exceeded the minimum state standards for digest evaluation. The contractor has also
maintained the countys high level standards in providing quality customer service.
Earlier this year, the Tax Assessors office issued a Request for Proposals through the county
purchasing departments seal bid process. Tyler Technologies was the selected vendor. The
Board of Tax Assessors approved Tyler Technologies, Inc. as the successful bidder and
approved this contract on August 18, 2010 subject to the final approval of the Board of
Commissioners.

manager he must obtain an alcohol permit.
Mr. Anderson divulged to the License Review Board that in addition to counseling he also
has Ignition Interlock on his vehicle as ordered by the court. He stated that he has been

Anderson.

PURPOSE
To authorize the acceptance of FY15 Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant funds
provided by the Department of Justice through the Office of Justice Programs.

BACKGROUND
On Tuesday, May 12, 2015, the Department of Justice (DOJ) announced that Cobb County was
awarded $81,003.00 in FY15 JAG Program funds. The CDBG Program Office accepted
applications from April 14, 2015 through May 1, 2015. After review of the applications, the
CDBG Program Office recommended funding for the Cobb County Juvenile Court for an
officer, the Cobb County District Attorneys Office for a victim advocate, SafePath Childrens
Advocacy Center for computers, the Cobb County Police Department for the Police Athletic
League program, and the Cobb County CDBG Program Office for administrative costs.
The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program is the primary provider
of federal criminal justice funding to state and local jurisdictions. JAG funds support all
components of the criminal justice system, from multijurisdictional drug and gang task forces to
crime prevention and domestic violence programs, courts, corrections, treatment, and justice
information sharing initiatives. JAG funded projects may address crime through the provision of
services directly to individuals and/or communities and by improving the effectiveness and
efficiency of criminal justice systems, processes, and procedures.

IMPACT STATEMENT
The Department of Justice (DOJ) through the Office of Justice Programs (OJP) provides 100%
of required funding for the JAG Program. Cobb County will have no matching obligations under
this program.

This volunteer organization, which is a part of the Cobb County Legal Aid office, a non-profit
agency, is continually providing assistance to individuals in domestic relations cases which is
one of the main goals of the Family Law Workshop. The Family Law Workshop was created
and approved by the Cobb County Superior Court Judges in order to assist individuals, who are
not represented by counsel, in certain domestic relations cases. The program is administered
through the Superior Court ADR office and is presented by volunteer attorneys from the Cobb
County Bar Association. The first workshop was held on November 8, 2007.
The Family Law Workshop is a self supporting operation in the General Fund that receives
dedicated revenues and requires no General Fund financial support. On August 19, 2015 the
Family Law Workshop Committee voted to make a $3,000.00 donation to the Cobb Justice
Foundation. This volunteer organization, which is a part of the Cobb County Legal Aid office,
is continually providing assistance to individuals in domestic relations cases which is one of the

To authorize corrections to the August 18, 2015 Board of Commissioners Zoning Hearing
Minutes regarding Other Business Items 31 and 32 (John Saunders).

BACKGROUND
Other Business Items 31 and 32 were approved at the August 18, 2015 Board of Commissioners
Zoning Hearing. The letters stipulated were read into the record as July 10, 2015. It was later

actually dated July 10, 2014. Both of these letters were received by the Zoning Division and
stamped in on July 13, 2015. In order to clearly define intent, it is the desire of this office to
revise the first bullet on Other Business Items 31 and 32 to read: "Letter from Mr. John
Saunders received by the Zoning Division on July 13, 2015 (attached and made a part of these
minutes)."

RECOMMENDATION
The Board of Commissioners to authorize corrections to the August 18, 2015 Board of

PURPOSE
To approve a contract with AllStar Lighting & Electrical Service, Inc. to supply new LED
lighting fixtures to illuminate the main gym floor, spectator and exhibit areas of the Civic
Center, under the 2011 Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs Special Purpose Local Option
Sales Tax Program.

BACKGROUND
The 2011 Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs (PRCA) Special Purpose Local Option Sales
Tax (SPLOST) program includes improvements at the Civic Center, 548 South Marietta
Parkway, Marietta. The Civic Center building was constructed in 1972 and is in need of
significant improvements to meet current standards and codes and provide improved
functionality. Renovation activities are well underway under a previously awarded construction
contract.
Improved interior lighting is a planned programming component of the facility improvements.
This includes brighter and more even lighting of the main gymnasium floor and spectator areas,
which double as exhibit spaces during exhibitions and shows. To replace the existing traditional
1000 watt metal halide fixtures, staff has selected LED modular high-bay fixtures. The new
fixtures will provide brighter and more even lighting, will last much longer, and use
considerably less energy than the existing fixtures. They come with a 10 year warranty. AllStar
Lighting & Electrical Service, Inc. will supply thirty-six 480 watt fixtures and forty-six 320 watt
fixtures to supply the required lighting at the floor level.
On April 1, 2013, following a competitive bidding process, the County approved a county-wide
Annual Contract with AllStar Lighting & Electrical Service, Inc. to cover light pole removal,
replacement, and related electrical and lighting materials and services. This contract was
renewed on April 1, 2015. AllStar has presented a proposal totaling $106,000.00, which
Page 112 of 158

Comm. Dist.

Agenda Item Number. 1

references approved unit prices for materials and equipment, in order to supply the selected
fixtures. Because this expenditure will exceed $50,000.00 in SPLOST funding, PRCA is
requesting Board of Commissioners approval.

FUNDING
Funding is available in the 2011 Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs SPLOST fund as
follows:
345-105-E030-EP304-C-8024 (Civic Center Building and Infrastructure) $106,000.00

RECOMMENDATION
The Board of Commissioners approve a contract with AllStar Lighting & Electrical Service,
Inc., in an amount not to exceed $106,000.00, to supply new LED lighting fixtures to illuminate
the main gym floor, spectator and exhibit areas of the Civic Center, under the 2011 Parks,
Recreation and Cultural Affairs SPLOST Program; authorize the corresponding budget
transactions; and further authorize the Chairman to execute the necessary documents.

BACKGROUND
The 2011 Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs (PRCA) Special Purpose Local Option Sales
Tax (SPLOST) program includes the redevelopment and treatment of the historical farm
structures at Hyde Farm, 721 Hyde Road, Marietta. All of the farm buildings were in various
states of deterioration. The goal of the project has been to bring the farm buildings to a
condition that will support the County's long term plans for the farm.
On July 8, 2014, the Board of Commissioners approved a contract with PBG Builders, Inc. to
perform this work. The contract was fully executed on August 5, 2014, and the work has been
completed satisfactorily. Final Closeout Supplemental Agreement and Deductive Change Order
No. 1 has been issued, representing a credit in the amount of $77,042.87. This amount
represents the remaining contract allowance for construction and site improvements not used in
the course of the project.

BACKGROUND
On May 9, 2000, the Alcoholic Beverage Ordinance was amended to provide for the Board of
Commissioners to review a summary of appeal hearings approved by the License Review Board
when distance requirements are waived for the issuance of an alcoholic beverage license and to
affirm the decision of the License Review Board or place this matter before the Board of
Commissioners. On July 16, 2015 the application for a Cobb County liquor, beer, wine, and
Sunday sales pouring license for Jordan Lounge & Hookah Bar, Inc. d/b/a Jordan Lounge &
Hookah Bar, was originally denied by the Business License Division Manager. The location of
Jordan Lounge & Hookah Bar, Inc. d/b/a Jordan Lounge & Hookah Bar, 2755 Canton Rd.,
Marietta, GA 30066, does not meet the distance requirements to a church. The appeal of the
Business License Division Managers decision regarding Jordan Lounge & Hookah Bar, Inc.
d/b/a Jordan Lounge & Hookah Bar was heard before the License Review Board on August 6,
2015. After considering all testimony and evidence presented, and the completed License
Review Board Questionnaire, the License Review Board recommended approval of the
application for a Cobb County liquor, beer, wine, and Sunday sales pouring license for Jordan
Lounge & Hookah Bar, Inc. d/b/a Jordan Lounge & Hookah Bar. The District Commissioner
has requested this matter be placed on the agenda for a hearing.
