I can't believe we are wanting to attract businesses to what I consider the perfect bedroom community. Dekalb and Rockdale were ruined because they thought they had to have more tax revenue and jobs.

More businesses bring more crowding of schools,and roads.The county has to provide more services to individuals who pay very little taxes. More low income housing has to be built and our county will be flooded with apartments.
Don't let the pro-developers kill Oconee.

Let's think twice before we make the same mistake as the other counties surrounding Atlanta.
