Two watchdog groups in Cobb County are concerned about still-unreleased details pertaining to the new Braves stadium, slated for construction on the northwest side of the intersection of I-75 and 285. The Cobb Taxpayers Association and Libertarian Party of Cobb County said they will pay close attention as county commissioners unveil specifics relating to the deal with the Braves.
"We need more information," said Brett Bittner, Chairman of the Libertarian Party of Cobb County.
"We think we're taxed enough already," said Lance Lamberton, Chairman of the Cobb Taxpayers Association. "We don't want individual Cobb County taxpayers to foot the bill. We don't want people's property taxes to go up on that. This definitely has to be something that is funded by people who are going to benefit financially and economically – obviously they're the ones who are going to be ponying up the money."
Tim Lee, Chairman of the Cobb County Board of Commissioners, has not spoken of any specifics of the stadium deal. He said details would be released within a few days, perhaps by the end of the week.
