Notes from the Athens City Council Meeting – Feb. 21, 2011
By Mel Ruberg
The Dairy Barn now sells alcohol! You can now acquire your favorite alcoholic beverages right off of Richland near the Ohio University Inn.
In honor of Mental Disabilities Month, ATCO is having a Disability Awareness Festival at the Athens Community Center on Tuesday March 3rd from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Events include displays and presentations by individuals with disabilities, music, poetry, and appetizers.
Also included at the meeting was one brave young student who proposed to the council that we move 8 fest away from the Fairgrounds back to a location far from campus in order to avoid legal issues and due to the fact that it coincides with the Relay for Life. The issue has been added to the agenda for next week’s meeting for further discussion.
If you have questions/concerns/grievances regarding these or any other City Council related business, there will be a Town Hall meeting this Saturday, February 26 open to all students and residents of the fine city of Athens.
