With the caveat being that the devil is in the details, a couple of Cobb County Commissioners spoke to the Marietta Daily Journal about the financing for the new Braves ballpark. And they say the Braves are paying 55% of the cost:

The other 45 percent will be funded without a tax increase for over 95 percent of Cobb County residents, [county chairman Tim] Lee said. This is a public-private partnership and the Braves are paying for 55 percent of the cost.
