Oconee County Administrative Officer Takes Responsibility For Spending $10,000 On Road Design, But Says Chairman Knew Of Costs

Contradicts Chair’s Explanation

Oconee County Administrative Officer Jeff Benko said he was the one who authorized the spending of nearly $10,000 in design costs to allow for a reconnection of Old Mars Hill Road with Mars Hill Road proper.

Benko said he was responding to a request from Board of Commissioners Chairman Melvin Davis “to get a firm estimate “ of the costs for reconnecting Old Mars Hill Road to Mars Hill Road.
