Controversial ordinance gets OCC OK

November 20, 2013
By

Oconee County Council approved last night an ordinance to require the Joint Regional Sewer Authority to provide more details when it submits requests for payments—such as an annual $600 thousand payment. First reading approval was unanimous on the part of the council, though the JRSA is anything except pleased. Before last night’s council meeting, JRSA Chairman Scott Parris used the term “poison pill” to describe the authority’s reaction on learning that the ordinance had been placed on the council meeting agenda. Parris released to reporters copies of 25 pages of funding-related documents which he says were sent to the county in May. But last night County Councilman Reg Dexter questioned Administrator Scott Moulder about the sufficiency of the JRSA accounting documents, and part of that dialogue can be heard today on 96.3/WGOG NEWS.
