The Athens-Clarke County Mayor and Commission passed--what some are calling--the “state’s most progressive local budget per capita,” which includes funds for a homelessness resolution https://www.wuga.org/post/acc-comissioners-address-homelessness#stream/0 , a community garden project, and mental health co-responders.

Even more recently, Athens officials are considering a new program that could provide rental assistance for those facing eviction. But when and how will these initiatives come to fruition?

District 5 Commissioner Tim Denson is here to speak talked with WUGA's Chris Shupe about that and provide an update about new government business.
