Kershaw County Council is set to take up a resolution Tuesday providing cost of living adjustments for county employees. County Administrator Vic Carpenter said the resolution will essentially formalize all paperwork regarding a 2 percent pay increase.  

“Basically, the resolution quantifies who gets a cost of living raise. It also includes who doesn’t, including new employees, employees under disciplinary suspension, things like that” Carpenter said. “It states that the funds apply to all the county employees that meet certain guidelines.”

He noted that pay raises have not been given to county employees in the last 4 or 5 years.

“The budget this year, however, is able to handle giving out raises.”

Council will also hold a public hearing and have third and final reading of an ordinance imposing an excessive noise limitation ordinance. The proposal was approved on second reading July 10 after a 5-1 vote with Councilman C.R. Miles voting against and Council Vice Chair Sammie Tucker Jr. absent from the meeting.

Council’s meeting is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Kershaw County Government Center, 515 Walnut St. in Camden.
