Kershaw County Council will consider making appointments Tuesday to the county’s tourism committee, a group tasked with advising council and Kershaw County Tourism Director Darron Kirkley with matters pertaining to local tourism efforts.

Kershaw County Administrator Vic Carpenter said council will be presented with a list of individuals for consideration, noting the group will likely consist of seven appointees. He said council is looking to appoint county residents from a variety of backgrounds representing areas across the county.

“A broad-based group is what council wanted,” Carpenter said.

Council will also consider a resolution establishing a grounds usage policy at the Kershaw County Courthouse, 1121 Broad St. Carpenter said the policy would provide the county with the ability to regulate the use of the grounds in order to ensure it’s used in an appropriate manner.

Additionally, council will discuss a gun discharge ordinance related to the possible regulation of the areas in which a firearm can be discharged. During the public comments period of council’s Jan. 22 meeting, S.C. Criminal Justice Academy officer Christopher Montjoy expressed his concerns regarding the discharge of guns in residential areas of the county. 

Other items on council’s agenda for Tuesday include:

• second reading of an ordinance amending the county’s zoning code relating to the definition of a street -- Carpenter said the proposal would amend the number of lots that could be put on a road;

• an agreement for the temporary transfer of law enforcement officers between Lancaster and Kershaw counties -- the agreement would allow deputies from each county to assist each other during special law enforcement operations.

• a public presentation from Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews;  

• a discussion of rules governing public presentations;

• a resolution honoring Christopher Scott Kyle, a U.S. Navy SEAL; and

• an executive session to discuss Carpenter’s evaluation.

Tuesday’s meeting begins at 5:30 p.m. at the Kershaw County Government Center, 515 Walnut St., and is open to the public.
