Athens one had pretty good roads. Today most of them are full of holes and falling apart. Subdivisions haven't been paved for over 30 years.
Taxpayers in the old Athens areas receive all services, like sewer, garbage pickup, leaf and limb pick up, etc., while others in the old county, who were promised the same services under unification, have no sewer and few other services, but pay the same tax rates. One group is favored while the other gets the shaft, and no one talks about it, from Pete McCommons to the worthless piece of garbage ABH to any of the gutless and silent commissioners or Mayor. They just don't care because no one enforces the law on local yokel corrupt outlaw government in the Communist cesspool Athens Georgia Clarke County.
Polluting, mostly empty, wasteful buses run around town, blocking narrow traffic lanes, mostly to cart around homeless parasites who pay no tax and are a drag on the rest of the taxpayers. These wasteful buses, wasting expensive diesel fuel, cost millions of dollars ever year, dollars which would better be spent on more sewer lines for the disenfranchised folks in the county, or pave the pot hole filled roads or even reduce the horrible taxes here. The same services are provided in most Alabama governments for about one fifth of our cost. Something is very very wrong in the corrupt State of Georgia, in he corrupt county of Clarke, in the corrupt city of Athens, where all these vital subjects are taboo.
Athens is also where they wasted about $3 million to buy the former Athens Federal Building on Hancock to aid their friends and cronies in order to create a local Taj Mahal water office with less paking than the former one had. This is a stupid, foolish, wasteful and corrupt government in the image of by gone days of former corruption.
Shame on you Athens and Shame on you State of Georgia for failing to enforce the equal protection laws on outlaw local governments like Athens Clarke County, Georgia, who give the middle finger to the law here.
