County leaders beach-bound
Four of the five Oconee County councilmen have registered for this summer’s conference of the South Carolina Association of Counties. The meeting is planned Sunday through Wednesday, August 3-6 at the Marriott on Hilton Head Island. Only District Two’s Wayne McCall will skip the event. Some council critics say it’s a waste of time and money for the county’s leaders to attend the conference in a resort area, but councilmen have said the meetings and information are valuable to help them be better public servants.
