Oconee Joint Regional Sewer Authority officials are a meeting this week with leaders of other local agencies about an upcoming study required by the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) to improve the sewer system because of recent sewer overflows.
School District of Oconee County superintendent Michael Thorsland recently said while he was initially frustrated by the timing of Gov. Henry McMaster’s executive order making it optional for masks to be worn in schools, he feels it has been a positive transition overall.
Saying his city would be paying the “lion’s share” of a rate increase on the three member cities, Seneca city administrator Scott Moulder argued Monday changes should be made in the Oconee County Joint Regional Sewer Authority’s proposed 2021-22 budget.
A litany of business is up for discussion in Walhalla tonight, including Oconee County Council taking a first vote on its upcoming fiscal year budget and a final decision on ending a face covering mandate for all facilities owned and operated by the county.
