OCC to face 5-page agenda

What happens when Oconee County Council skips one of its regular meeting nights—such as the cancellation of one of its two August meetings? You can expect a long agenda for the next time the county fathers assemble. Such will be the case for Tuesday night’s meeting at the County Administrative Offices. It’ll begin with public comment at 6. The regular agenda includes a proclamation to honor Oconee Nuclear Station’s 40th anniversary. A report is to be made on the county’s Transit Feasibility Study. The council is being asked to change a financial agreement with Greenfield Industries. It’ll allow Greenfield to qualify for a fee-in-place-of-tax arrangement and commit the manufacturer to invest $5 million in the county within a five-year period. The council is to consider a resolution to set up a commission to fund capital projects. The county staff recommends a contract worth nearly $500 thousand for a North Carolina company to provide maintenance services to its Broadband project. A Florida contractor is in line for a $480 thousand job to remove the lead-based paint, clean and paint all steel surfaces of the Cobb Bridge near Westminster. And there’s a recommendation Tuesday to pay a Columbia car dealership $265,430 to provide 10 Chevy Tahoes to the Oconee Sheriff’s Office.
