This category is for websites about information and organizations related specifically to the Clarke County. Athens is a unified city with Clarke County. A consolidated city–county is a city and county that have been merged into one unified jurisdiction. As such, it is simultaneously a city, which is a municipal corporation; and a county, which is an administrative division of a state. The boundaries of the City of Athens are also those of Clarke County. The government is referred to as "Athens-Clarke County." Since the boundaries are the same for the city and county most of the sites for this area are listed under the locality of Athens. For example you will find the government site listed under Athens. An exception to listing sites would be those historical sites that specifically refer to Clarke County. There is one city (Winterville) within those boundaries that has maintained an independent city government. The citizens of Winterville pay city taxes and also taxes to Athens-Clarke County. Part of the city of Bogart also lies within Clarke County.
