New Athens effort to promote business
(2007-12-06)
(WOUB) - Some people would consider Rick Batyko a magacian because of what he's done to revitalize Cleveland.

Yesterday, Batyko came to Athens to share his expertise, stressing the need for a group effort.

Local officials want to attract more businesses and tourists to Southeast Ohio.

Jennifer Simon of the Athens Area Chamber of Commerce says plans are being made for a 60-thousand dollar campaign to spread the word about what this area has to offer.

Batyko's visit was sponsored by the Athens County C-E-O Group and Ohio University.
