The Oconee County Board of Commissioners is set on Tuesday night to change how members of the Hard Labor Creek Regional Reservoir Management Board are appointed, allowing for more flexibility in appointment of citizens.
The Board also is scheduled to discuss and consider advertisements for citizens who wish to be considered for Management Board membership.
The change in the intergovernmental agreement with Walton County expanding the opportunity for citizen appointments is on the consent agenda for Tuesday night’s meeting, meaning it will be approved without further discussion unless a commissioner objects.
Commissioner John Daniell made a case at last Tuesday night’s meeting for quick action on appointment of a citizen. The agenda for Tuesday night includes discussion of that option.
