Oconee County Board Of Commissioners Turns Down Again Proposal For Shopping Center With Publix On Oconee Connector

***Focus Shifted To Legal Arguments***

Attorney David Ellison, representing Deferred Tax LLC before the Oconee County Board of Commissioners on Tuesday night, made it clear his client was not interested in any compromise over the rezone request for a shopping center with a Publix on the Oconee Connector at Mars Hill Road.

“You should approve the rezone as submitted,” he said several times.

Land Planner Ken Beall, also representing Deferred Tax, said the same.

The Board of Commissioners responded by voting unanimously to turn down Deferred Tax LLC, owned by Maxie Price, with no real discussion.
