Oconee County Commissioners To Consider Recommendation That They Allow Rezone And Special Use For QuikTrip With Truck Fuel Bays

***Citizens Opposed Inclusion Of Truck Bays***

Eric Eberhardt, representing QuikTrip, was emphatic in telling the Oconee County Planning Commission last month that the gas station and convenience store his company wants to build opposite the intersection of North Main Street and U.S 441 Bypass north of Watkinsville has truck bays but is not a truck stop.

Ben Qualls, real estate manager for QuikTrip, told the Commission that QuikTrip knows what a truck stop is since it operates them elsewhere, and what is being proposed at that site is not a truck stop.
