ACC From A to Z

2017 Edition of ACC from A to Z Guide Now Available


The 2017 revised and updated version of the Athens-Clarke County Public Information Office's ACC from A to Z: A Guide to the Athens-Clarke County Unified Government and Community Services is now available to the public. The guide contains contact information and descriptions for nearly 700 entries related to government programs and services, as well as community organizations.

Arranged alphabetically by subject, the guide has been produced for over a decade by the Public Information Office based largely on the kinds of questions that the office regularly receives by phone, email, or social media. Information in the guide is reviewed and revised annually for accuracy.

The cover for the 2017 edition of the ACC from A to Z Guide features artwork of the City Hall dome by local visual artist Jamie Calkin. The guide is available in limited printed quantities and in a variety of electronic formats at www.athensclarkecounty.com/atoz.

Fire Up the Hydrants

Fire Up the Hydrants: Vote for Your Favorite Hydrant(s) by Feb. 28


Twenty fire hydrants in downtown Athens were transformed during the fall into functional, life-saving, creative pieces of art to help celebrate 80 years of drinking water delivery service from the JG Beacham Drinking Water Treatment Plant.

The selected hydrants form a 2-mile route when walked in a specific order. 
If you walk the route twice, you have covered 4-miles. This is the average distance people in developing countries walk every day to gather their water for daily use.  

Pick up a brochure, map, or I Spy Challenge for the Fire Up the Hydrants project in a variety of locations and online. The project is a collaboration of local artists, the ACC Public Utilities Department, and the ACC Fire Department.

Vote for your favorite hydrant by February 28. The top three artists earn prizes. Voting is available by paper ballot or online.
