The Oconee County Board of Commissioners voted to award a contract to Simpson Trucking and Grading of Gainesville for construction of Parkway Boulevard Extension at a work session on Jan. 8, 2016. The meeting was held in the Grand Jury Room of the Courthouse in Watkinsville. Sarah Bell and I both shot video, and this clip of the entire discussion of the road project comes from the video shot by Bell. It shows, left to right, Oconee County Commissioner William "Bubber" Wilkes, Public Works Director Emil Beshara, consultant Bill Ross, and Planning Director B.R. White. At the end of the clip, Bell asked how the county was going to fund the roadway project. The first answer comes from Board of Commissioners Chairman Melvin Davis, seated to the right of Wilkes and off camera. The second response comes from Commissioner John Daniell, seated to the right of Davis and also off camera.
