ACC gov't to discuss transportation projects

Banner-Herald reports:
The Athens-Clarke Commission is gearing up again after a monthslong break for elections and the holidays.

The Government Operations Committee, another five-member group that considers internal policies, will set out Tuesday to revise a plan for future bicycle lanes across the county, said Commissioner Kelly Girtz, the committee's chairman.

Committee members also will discuss how to spend $500,000 the commission earmarked in 2006 for alternative transportation - walking, biking or buses.

Commissioners set aside the money as part of a deal to build a portion of a West Athens road, Jennings Mill Parkway, when state funding unexpectedly became available.

Commissioner contact information.
