Oconee County Commissioners meet tonight, 7 o’clock at the courthouse in Watkinsville.

We are today one week away from runoff Election Day in Oconee County, where the week of early voting that began Monday continues today: Chuck Horton and Marcus Wiedower are racing to fill the unexpired term of Post 2 Commissioner John Daniell, who ran unopposed to replace retiring Oconee County Commission Chairman Melvin Davis. Horton and Wiedower were the top two vote-getters in a three-man field back on November 8.

There is more bicycle and pedestrian talk this evening in Athens: the Athens-Clarke County Commission’s Rails to Trails Committee meets, 6 o’clock at City Hall.
