Revenue & Expenses

Letter from the Auditor

Fellow Resident,

Each year the City of Athens collects revenue from several different sources. All of us receive various municipal services while contributing in numerous ways to their funding. As your current Athens City Auditor, I work in close consultation with our City Council Representatives (my former colleagues) and Mayor Patterson to track and manage our fiscal resources. The following is a partial list of revenues and expenditures involved in providing these services for your review. I hope you find it to be both interesting and informative.
