Athens City Council over-rides mayor's veto
(2008-08-12)
(WOUB) - A veto by an Athens mayor is rare.

An over-ride rarer still.

But it happened last night and convincingly so.

Athens City Councilmembers voted six to one to put an ordinance on the books over the mayor's objections.

The ordinance in question is a special-case pay-out for one firefighter who missed out on a year's worth of pension credit because of an injury.
