Kershaw County Council will once again take up third and final reading of an ordinance to amend the county’s code of zoning regarding cell towers, antennas and the definition of a fall zone. Council unanimously voted Oct. 8 to send the amendment back to its planning and zoning commission.

The commission met Monday to discuss the amendment, which included members of the Lake Wateree Association (LWA). LWA member Rick Williams said “something of a compromise” was reached involving the amendment.

Williams and other LWA members expressed their fervent support of an ordinance that could allow the construction of more cell towers in the county, especially in the area near Lake Wateree where cell reception is reportedly very weak. Williams has also indicated that he and other citizens with a vested interest in the ordinance will be present at Tuesday’s meeting to voice their support.

In other business, council will:

• host a public hearing in regard to and vote on third and final reading of an ordinance amending the county’s code of zoning in regards to bed and breakfast inns; and

• hear first reading of an ordinance to amend the county’s code of zoning in regards to off-street parking requirements.

The meeting will begin 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.
