Sales Tax Commission makes list

March 18, 2014

Oconee’s sales tax commissioners now have a list of capital projects to send to the County Council. It took two hours of discussion and votes last night before the commissioners settled on about seven separate projects. They’ll now await a meeting April 10 when Scott Moulder, county administrator, presents the nuts and bolts as to how the projects are financed. In the end, they’ll depend on a referendum to be part of this year’s General Election in November. The issue will be whether the voters are willing to accept paying an additional penny of local sales tax to pay for the projects. Various projects were given the thumbs up—including the two most expensive: $11 million for an indoor aquatic and recreation center and $10 million for library projects in Seneca, Walhalla, and Westminster.
