Oconee County Commissioners Tuesday night agreed to a new schedule for the 2015 Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax referendum, setting up public hearings in June and July that will lead up to a vote on Nov. 4.

The schedule calls for the Board of Commissioners to vote at its meeting on Aug. 5 on the final list of projects to be funded by the SPLOST, should voters approve it in November.

Prior to that vote, the Commissioners are to hold a work session on July 2 to reach agreement on SPLOST funding priorities.

Commissioner John Daniell asked that the Commissioners meet before the public hearings on July 30 and July 14 to resolve issues among them about how to address courthouse safety and requests from a number of department heads.

BOC Chairman Melvin Davis suggested the Board take up those matters at its regularly meetings on May 27 and June 3.
