Cobb commissioners to appear before grand jury

Cobb County Commissioners are scheduled to appear Aug. 19 before the current installment of a county grand jury.

The  district attorney’s office did not disclose what topics the commission would discuss.  In June, a grand jury called County Manager David Hankerson to answer questions about the county’s hiring process, and late last year about  his administrative responsibilities and fund transfers involving the county’s water system.

Cobb’s grand juries, convened for two-month terms, regularly call in officials to discuss county business. The sessions are closed to the public.
