Georgia contains 159 counties. Each county is the local level of government within its borders.
Under the Georgia State Constitution, all of its counties are granted home rule to deal with problems that are purely local in nature.
There are currently 6 consolidated county-cities in Georgia: Athens-Clarke County, Augusta-Richmond County, Columbus-Muscogee County, Cusseta-Chattahoochee County, Georgetown-Quitman County and Statenville-Echols County.
