Kershaw County Council voted unanimously Tuesday to move an amendment regarding cell towers, antennas and fall zones back to the Kershaw County Planning and Zoning Commission. Council originally considered third and final reading of the amendment Sept. 24, but Chairman Gene Wise tabled it at that time following both public and council members’ comments expressing concern about how close together cell phone towers might be in the future.

Council did not discuss the amendment further at Tuesday’s meeting and only voted to send it back to the planning and zoning commission.

Also Tuesday, council unanimously passed a resolution honoring Carrie Lee Belton for her service to Hyco Missionary Baptist Church in Cassatt. The proclamation, read by Wise, stated that Belton attended public schools in Kershaw County and pursued a life-long desire to learn and teach those around here. It also stated that she has 12 children, 44 grandchildren, 40 great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren, and recognized her contributions to the church and county council.

Councilman Sammie Tucker Jr. said a ceremony honoring Belton will be held at the church Oct. 19 at 3 p.m.

In other business:

• Smoak noted during council briefings that new Kershaw County Recreation Department Director Joe Eason has a desire to “reinvigorate” the existing county recreation commission. He said Eason had previous, positive experiences with other such commission. Smoak said each council member could nominate an individual to the commission from their district. He asked County Administrator Vic Carpenter to provide a list of those currently serving on the commission. Smoak then asked council to be prepared to vote on new members at council’s Nov. 12 meeting.

• Council unanimously approved a mutual aid agreement between the Kershaw County and Calhoun County sheriff’s offices.

• Council unanimously appointed Claude Eichelberger to a vacant position on the planning and zoning commission.
