Oconee County Sales Tax Revenue Increase Contributes To Budget Surplus, Resulting In Mid-Year Budget Amendments

***Monies Allocated For Heritage Park***

Oconee County received just less than $1.1 million in Local Option Sales Tax in December, the first time the monthly collection has exceeded the $1 million mark.

The increase in collections, attributed to the November opening of Costco, played a role at the Board of Commissioners meeting on Tuesday night as the Board gave tentative approval to Fiscal Year 2023 Mid-Year Budget Amendments for $1.8 million.
