Citizens blast light-rail proposal at town hall

MDJ reports on Town Hall meeting:

KENNESAW — The majority of citizens who spoke at a TSPLOST town hall meeting at NorthStar Church on Wednesday said the proposed light-rail line was not worth the projected cost.

More than 90 people turned out for the town hall on the proposed 10-year sales tax. Of the 21 speakers who sounded off, the majority focused on the $856.5 million line item that would go to build a 12.8-mile light-rail line from the MARTA Arts Center Station in Midtown to the Cumberland/Galleria area, which has a projected maximum cost of $1.2 billion.

“We already had a SPLOST in Cobb County,” she said. “We had a millage rate increase in Cobb County. And now they want us to pay for this? It’s just beyond belief.”  Susan Stanton of north Cobb
