Twelve, 1-cent tax requests make the deadline
A dozen applications made this week’s deadline to be considered for proceeds from a potential one-cent local sales tax in Oconee County. It’ll be left to the voters in November to decide whether the tax is worth the projects proposed. And it’ll be the duty of the Oconee Capital Sales Tax Commission to recommend which projects make the ballot. After getting a look last night at all 12 applications, the commissioners set a schedule of formal hearings at which the applicants can make their case. The first will be Wednesday, January 22. At 6:30 that night the commissioners will entertain presentations from the Oconee Public Library and the Oconee Indoor Recreation-Aquatic Center.
