City of Athens has seven departments reporting to the City Manager.
Each department of the City was created by the City Council
for “the advancement of the welfare of the citizens and residents
of Athens.” The departments of Community Development, Finance,
Fire, Human Resources, Parks and Recreation, Police, and Public
Works currently serve the City, with a department head responsible
for daily operations including budgeting, personnel, planning,
and general supervision. The Department of Education and the
Department of Public Utilities are created by the City Charter
but operate with separate boards. The Athens Housing Authority
is operated by a five member board appointed by the Mayor. The
City Judge and City Attorney are appointed by and serve at the
discretion of the City Council.
