The Oconee County Board of Commissioners voted 3-1 tonight to postpone from May 20 until November 4 the referendum on a new Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax.
Commissioners Margaret Hale and John Daniell were joined by Commissioner Jim Luke in voting for the delay.
Commissioner Mark Saxon voted against the motion, made by Hale and seconded by Daniell.
BOC Chairman Melvin Davis, who votes only in the case of a tie, asked County Clerk Jane Greathouse to record in the minutes his opposition to the delay.
