Sixteen public forums are being held across Athens County to discuss a potential countywide 0.25% Transportation Sales Tax levy, according to a news release from Athens County, Hocking-Athens-Perry Community Action (HAPCAP).

Funding obtained from the passage of a transportation sales tax – if it’s approved by voters – “could be used to expand services, hours, and days of operations, purchase and install bus shelters, explore alternative fuels, purchase accessible vehicles, and much more related to transportation and active transportation across the county,” the release said.
