Kershaw County Council will take up third and final reading of an ordinance amending the county’s code of zoning and land development regulations concerning communication towers, antennas and the definition of a “fall zone.” At its Sept. 10 meeting, council voted unanimously to pass second reading with a reminder from County Attorney Ken DuBose that Tuesday’s meeting would would include a public hearing before the ordinance could go through third reading.

At the Sept. 20 meeting, one community member expressed concern that the ordinance’s first reading was passed arbitrarily and that did not agree with changing the minimum distance between towers from 5,000 to 1,500 feet. At Tuesday’s meeting, the public will have the opportunity to express further concerns before council regarding this ordinance.

Also on the agenda Tuesday are:

• a public hearing in regard to an ordinance setting the millage rate for the 2013-14 fiscal year;

• third reading of an ordinance to establish that millage; and

• second reading of an ordinance to amend the county’s code of zoning and land development regarding bed and breakfast inns.

In new business, council will discuss:

• a resolution supporting a bicycle, pedestrian and greenways plan from Eat Smart Move More Kershaw County;

• a bid for a Kershaw County Detention Center control panel; and

• tourism within the county.

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