Kershaw County Council unanimously approved third and final reading of an ordinance to amend the county’s Unified Code of Zoning and Land Development Regulations with regard to family exemptions. The amendment allows families owning land to subdivide their property into more lots on which family members can reside. The current code restricts such divisions by regulating access via roads or driveways.

“It’s less intrusion, less government, not more bureaucracy,” Councilman Jimmy Jones said.

Also, council unanimously passed a resolution expanding the number of seats on the county’s Safe Community Commission. The commission currently hosts 14 council-appointed seats. The resolution expands the commission to 20 seats with the six added seats appointed by existing commission members.

During Tuesday’s meeting, Fine Arts Center (FAC) of Kershaw County President Mary Jones thanked council for its contributions to the FAC. She asked that the FAC have a “voice at the table” and for collaborative efforts when it comes to improvements at the center. FAC board member Connie Frith also spoke, presenting clips from the FAC outreach program performances attended by children in the community.

Council also recognized Hannah Thomley with a certificate of appreciation. Thomley was recognized for her “selfless acts of caring and concern for others” by raising money through T-shirt sales for the mother of one of her friends who recently developed breast cancer. Thomley wanted to use the money to honor her friend’s mother with a postage stamp.

Council ended the meeting with an executive session to discuss contractual and legal issues.
