Cobb may extend alcohol hours for Super Bowl

A second and final public hearing will be held by the Cobb County Board of Commissioners at 7 p.m. Jan. 22 on extending the serving of alcoholic beverages from midnight to 2 a.m. on Feb. 4 for the Super Bowl.

No one from the public made any statements during the commissioners’ first public hearing at 9 a.m. Jan. 8.

This hearing will be held in the second floor public meeting room, 100 Cherokee St., Marietta.

However, “these extended hours only become effective upon the passage of legislation during the 2019 General Assembly session authorizing such hours,” according to the Cobb code amendment.

During his recent State of the County address, Commission Chairman Mike Boyce said McCollum International Airport “will be the gateway for more than 250 aircraft for the Super Bowl next month. Cobb has been selected by the NFL as one of the host sites for a pregame event.”

“Select Cobb, Cobb Travel and Tourism and the government are pulling all the stops to greet, host and entertain these guests and encourage them to look at Cobb as a future home for their businesses,” Boyce added.
