Athens News Matters: September 27, 2019

This week on Athens News Matters, hear WUGA’s panel of commentators discuss the ongoing Clarke County Board of Education drama and the resignation of Central Services director David Fluck. 


Affordable housing is one of Athens’ biggest crises, one that tiny houses could help alleviate. However, they’re not allowed in Athens-Clarke County. Hear two reports about the houses, one from Athens Area Habitat for Humanity executive director Stephen Frye, and one from the owner of a tiny house in Oglethorpe County.


Plus, an energy panel, Commissioner Tim Denson’s take on the ACC Animal Shelter controversy, the State Botanical Garden’s Native Plant Sale, and an interview with the host of a local podcast about death.
