At a meeting Mar. 1, Oconee County Commissioners opted for staff to collect more information and report back before they consider taking further action on the proposed St. Mary's/Zoom Bait sewer line.
After much debate, Oconee County Commissioners Tuesday said they want more information before moving forward with the proposed St. Mary's/Zoom Bait sewer line project. The commission heard a recommendation from Jimmy Parker of Precision Planning Inc. and Oconee County Utility Director Chris Thomas to modify the sewer project. Parker said to accommodate for growth, an 18 inch line would be preferable to the originally suggested 12 inch line for increased capacity. He also recommended that the project cover a much larger portion of the county. The project would be partially funded by a grant from the Georgia Department of Community Affairs, and would need to be completed by October in order to use the $186,711. "I don't know trying to …

The Oconee County Board of Commissioners will consider an overhaul of the county's animal control ordinance; lower park rental rates are also on the table.
Oconee County citizens will get a chance to comment on a proposed animal control ordinance that will be presented to the Oconee County Board of Commissioners at their agenda-setting meeting Tuesday night. Sections of the current ordinance were adopted in 1987, with the most recent update made in May 2000. “We are totally revamping it,” said Animal Control Director Catlyn Vickers. “We are referencing a lot of state code in our new ordinance, and the public will be able to comment on it at the meeting.” Major changes to the ordinance include an increase in the fine structure, more classifications for aggressive animals, micro-chipping cats and dogs as they come into the facility at the owner’s expense, and extending the time that an owner …

The planned station at Highway 78 and Mars Hill Road could mean more options for Oconee drivers and more stress for its would-be competitor.
A gas station and convenience store chain is racing forward with plans to build a new location just south of State Route 316. The Oconee County Board of Commissioners could vote Feb. 8 on a variance request by RaceTrac Petroleum Inc., which plans to build an 18-pump gas station on the northeast corner of U.S. Highway 78 and Mars Hill Road. The project will likely move forward whether or not commissioners OK the request to decrease a county-mandated 50-foot buffer on the back of the gas station's property to 13 feet. The commissioners approved a rezoning request and a separate variance for the 2.371-acre property for RaceTrac last fall. This final variance, which was endorsed by Oconee County Planning Commission members in October, had been…
