KershawHealth to approach KCC for funding

At Kershaw County Council’s meeting Tuesday, April 9, Council will be approached by the KershawHealth Board of Trustees regarding the funding of the EMS Financial Operations. Concluding council’s meeting on March 26, Councilman Jimmy Jones shared his thoughts on KershawHealth’s request for funding from the county. Jones questions the management of KershawHealth and why taxpayer’s funds should go towards funding which was previously covered by the hospital’s own budget. KershawHealth’s funding request will be for County Council to provide funding for the healthcare organization’s EMS deficit and ongoing capital expenses beginning in July.

Council will also be approached regarding Historic Camden Revolutionary War Site's request for funding to add welcome center functions. Jones also expressed frustration with this proposal at the March 26 meeting in saying that there is no need to spend this kind of money for a "duplication of services we are already receiving from our chamber."

Also on Council’s agenda is the consideration of an agreement between Kershaw County and Columbia Area Transportation (COATS) and Transportation Planning Services. The City of Camden has already received help from Representative Laurie Slade Funderburk not to join COATS.

Other items on Council’s agenda include:

• Proclamation designating April 14-20, 2013 as National Public Safety Telecommunications Week;

• Proclamation celebrating KershawHealth Centennial;

• Proclamation recognizing Peace Officers’ Memorial Day;

• First reading of an ordinance to amend the county’s zoning map designation for Tax Parcel #307-00-00-022 for Claude Campbell from RD-2 to R-15 and the designation for Tax Parcel #307-00-00-078 for Claude Campbell from MRD-1 and Rd-2 to R-15;

• Amendment to the Zoning and Land Development Regulations;

• Tourism Advisory Committee;

• Nominees for Kershaw County Grievance Committee; and

 •ATAX Committee Applicants.

Kershaw County Council will meet Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at the Kershaw County Government Center in the County Council Chambers. Meetings are open to the public.

(The online version of this story has been corrected to remove the impression that Historic Camden wishes to have visitor center functions moved from the Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce to the Revolutionary War Site.)
