Six Flags $10 million bond vote approved

The Cobb County Board of Commissioners voted 3-2 Tuesday to issue no more than $10 million in South Cobb Redevelopment Authority revenue bonds to develop the Six Flags Area Special Services District.

Commissioners JoAnn Birrell and Bob Ott opposed the measure with Ott saying he was “uncomfortable” with approval and Birrell saying there were “too many unknowns.”

Voting in favor were Chairman Tim Lee and Commissioners Lisa Cupid and Bob Weatherford.

Cupid, who represents this portion of South Cobb, said additional taxes will be charged to business property owners, only in the Six Flags area, to finance the bonds but not to renters or residents.

Some dilapidated buildings will be removed, and improvements will include infrastructure and landscaping.
