PRT a week from the votes
Oconee County PRT commissioners today began their review of 13 individual requests for grant funds. The votes on doling out ATAX funds are to be taken during a meeting next week. Their review was led by Phil Shirley, executive director of Parks, Recreation and Tourism. Shirley said he will leave to the commissioners the decision on whether to commit the entire $60 thousand at once or whether to divide it into two installments six months apart. The largest request, from Walhalla Civic Auditorium, seeks $22 thousand, 921 dollars for advertising.
