Oconee County Commissioners Postpone Action On Farmland Selection Committee

SPLOST Timeline Set

The Oconee County Board of Commissioners postponed action last night on a slate of candidates for a ranking committee for the county’s farmland protection program even though, at least according to Chairman Melvin Davis, the Commissioners had agreed upon the slate before the meeting took place.

The Commissioners also approved a timetable putting another Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax on the ballot in June or July of next summer, and they agreed to take steps to reduce the size of one of its citizen committees because of difficulty getting enough members to show up to make a quorum.
