Few Seize Chance To Speak On Liquor-By-The-Drink Referendum Now Before Oconee County Board Of Commissioners

Action Expected Next Week

The Oconee County Board of Commissioners, anticipating a large turnout tonight for its discussion of a liquor-by-the-drink referendum, moved its meeting from the relatively small Commission Chamber to the much larger Courtroom 1, but the change of venue proved to be unnecessary.

Only nine people spoke, with three of them expressing opposition to the proposal to put the issue before voters in November.
