Final appointees named!
Oconee County now has a fully-stocked Capital Project Sales Commission. A new, six-member commission was in place this afternoon to work toward the process of a new referendum, in which the voters get to choose whether to accept paying an extra penny on the sales tax to generate funds for projects considered worthwhile. In a special meeting in Walhalla, Seneca’s commission member, Mollie Smith, announced Brenda Davis of Westminster and Thelma Miller of Walhalla were appointed the remaining two municipal representatives. Three men have already been named by Oconee County to represent un-incorporated areas: Don Fuller, Russell Price, and Glen McPheeters. The commission’s first official meeting has yet to be scheduled, according to Beth Hulse, clerk to Oconee County Council.
