Contentious $ issue coming to a head!
When it comes to an annual payment of about $600 thousand, who has right on its side? That may be the overall question under debate by the Oconee County Council and the separate body politic Oconee Joint Regional Sewer Authority. But a specific issue appears headed for a vote during a meeting Monday night in Seneca. At Monday’s meeting, it’s expected that the JRSA’s planning and policy committee will pose a question to the full commission whether to ask its member cities if they are willing to release the county from the annual payment of $610 thousand. Instead of payment, Bob Winchester prefers to call it a “contribution”—made for the purpose of sewer work within the unincorporated areas of the county.
