Job-creation projects on the agenda
Two projects intended to create local jobs are up for action during next week’s meeting of the Oconee County Council. The council is to consider an ordinance and a resolution that help sweeten the pot for the A.I.D. Company, the county’s manufacturing acquisition of last summer. Councilmen are being asked to consider first reading of an ordinance authorizing a fee in place of tax agreement between Oconee County and A.I.D., along with first and final reading an inducement agreement between the two parties. On the agenda is a separate ordinance allowing for the sale of the old courthouse and a county grant to Oconee Courthouse Ventures Inc. The business group, which has its sights set on making a lodging facility out of the 1956 building, is in line for special source revenue credits, with council approval.
