Athens County Municipal Court Judge William Grim says he’ll be retiring at the end of his current term.

Grim’s intended retirement date is Dec. 31, 2015.  In a news release Grim, who is eligible for a third term, said it “was time to pass the torch to a new generation of judges.” He was first elected to the Municipal Court bench in 2003 and re-elected in 2009.

The Athens News is reporting Todd Grace, who is a local lawyer, announced he will run for Grim’s seat which is up for election in 2015.

The newly elected judge will begin a new six-year term on January 1, 2016.
