Group proposes charter government for Athens County

Athens Bill of Rights Committee member Milena Miller speaks at the Athens County Courthouse Tuesday, as chairman Dick McGinn looks on. The group is collecting signatures for a fall ballot initiative to make Athens County a charter government to prevent fracking and injection wells in the county.

The group that got Athens city voters to pass a citizen’s bill of rights to restrict fracking and associated practices within the city limits is now turning its attention to the entire county.
