The Cobb County Tax Commissioner anticipates closing the motor vehicle office at 700 South Cobb Drive at the end of November.

After two decades of helping people who don’t really want to be there, a Cobb County tag office is closing.

Cobb tax commissioner Carla Jackson will close the location, 700 South Cobb Drive in Marietta, by the end of November, the county posted Sunday on Facebook.

“The complexity of retrofitting today’s security, technology and business functions into that structure while striving to deliver exceptional customer service would be extremely costly and challenging,” Jackson said in a news release.

The employees will be transferred to the renovated office at 2932 Canton Road, where there are new workstations. That overhaul cost $300,000 of funds left over from the 2017 budget, county spokesman Ross Cavitt said at the time.
