Debate over whether Hebe should be relocated
(2008-04-29)
(WOUB) - An old statue is generating quite a bit of discussion at Athens City Hall right now.

Hebe is the goddess of eternal youth and she stands inside the Water Treatment Plant where the public can't see her.

City Council last night heard from people who want to move the possibly historic statue to the Athens Library or maybe the Recreation Center.

However, others maintain it physically can't or shouldn't be relocated.

Council wants some "expert" opinions before taking any action.

Councilmember Debbie Phillips points out the city has a Public Art Policy and a Municipal Arts Commission.

Members of the Recreation Advisory Board will also be consulted.

The Community Issues Committee is dealing with the issue.
