Sheriff Gets Deputies

The Oconee County Board of Commissioners tomorrow night is expected to adopt a fiscal year 2014 General Fund budget that is up 5.7 percent from a year earlier but $2.7 million less than department heads and constitutional officers had requested.

The overall county budget includes water and sewer rate increases, with residential water customers paying $19 for the first 1,000 gallons of water used, up 5.6 percent from the current $18, and residential sewer customers paying $21.32, up 4.0 percent from a year earlier.
