Cobb debates $500,000 in business incentives ahead of Tuesday vote

Cobb County commissioners are expected to hold a vigorous debate on business incentives Tuesday ahead of a scheduled vote to cap fees for five new projects or expansions, including one for The Home Depot.

The value of the incentives comes out to more than $500,000 in construction permitting and business license fees the county will not collect. They do not include property tax abatements, which are given out by the development authority.

Commission Chairman Mike Boyce said he welcomed the debate, acknowledging that unanimous approval for the incentives is unlikely.
