The Board of Commissioners sets policy and provides general oversight and direction for the organization. In addition, they provide for the on-going management of the authority by hiring an executive director.
Regular board meetings are held on the last Thursday of the month at 4:30 p.m. Meetings are held at the Athens Housing Authority, 300 S. Rocksprings St. Changes to the schedule and special called meetings will be posted to our website and the Athens Banner Herald.
A six-member Board of Commissioners governs the Athens Housing Authority. Commissioners are volunteers from the community. The Athens-Clarke County mayor appoints five of the Commissioners for staggered five-year rotating terms. A Resident Commissioner, with full voting rights, is appointed for a one-year term. The Board of Commissioners acts independently from local government.
