Public art

This always proves to be an interesting debate, and I'm not opposed to public funds being spent on public forms of art (Works Progress Administration!). I am, however, opposed to making an investment in that given our current fiscal state, and I think most of the commissioners would agree with that statement.

Plus, those bus shelters didn't cost Athens-Clarke County taxpayers an additional dime because the additional cost was covered by a private fundraising effort from the Athens Area Art Council. And perhaps that is the way to proceed since this would appear to be a very good case for a healthy public-private partnership.
