Archive for June, 2010

Just read this interesting article from the June 2010 “CobbLine your county news source”.  This is the flyer that comes with the Cobb water bill and generally has good things in it.  Thought those of you who bypass this flyer might like this information.

Cobb County libraries are participating in a statewide “Get Outdoors Georgia” campaign now through Dec. 31.  As part of the campaign, library card holders can check out ParkPass folders for seven days.  A folder contains a parking tag for Georgia state parks and a free family pass, for up to four people, to Georgia historical sites.  the free parking tag, a $50 savings, can be used at any of Georgia’s 48 state parks.  The family pass can be used at any of the 15 historical sites in Georgia.

Checking out a Parkpass folder is just as easy as checking out a book.  A participant must have a valid library card to check out one of the 34 park pass folders available in Cobb.  Folders can be renewed twice and patrons with overdue folders are charged 10 cents daily until it is returned or fined $50 to replace lost folders.  Library patrons interested in reserving ParkPass folders can go online at cobbcounty.org/library or visitone of the 17 county public libraries for more information.

Looks like this might be a great way to save some money this summer.   

Remember, if your thinking of buying or selling a home over the next few months that interest rates are at or near record lows making homes in Cobb Powder Springs and Marietta more affordable than ever.  If you’re interested in finding out more please contact me at www.RealtorGaryPike@gmail.com or go to my website at www.metrobrokers.com/gary.pike.
