Kershaw County Council will focus on Central Carolina Technical College (CCTC) as part of its first meeting of 2014 Tuesday evening.

County Administrator Vic Carpenter said it will be an opportunity for the county to receive input from local residents and groups.

“It’s a presentation on the campus. We have several groups in the county that want to come and give their thoughts on it,” he said.

The agenda lists the Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce, Kershaw County Committee of 100 and local industry as participants in the discussion. Kershaw County Economic Development Director Peggy McLean said a well-prepared workforce is the lifeblood of economic development.

“Central Carolina Technical College plays a vital role in our economic development efforts in Kershaw County.  One of the top concerns of an industrial prospect is workforce,” McLean said. “(Industries) want to know we have the people they need and that those people have the skills they are looking for. The programs at CCTC now and in the future will ensure we have the people to attract new jobs.”

Under new business is an item to award a bid for six new 400-gallon oil tanks and one 550-gallon oil/water/gasoline mixture tank for the county’s recycling centers.

“Every year we apply for grants from DHEC (Department of Health & Environmental Control) and this would allow us to place six new oil tanks at convenience centers around the county,” Carpenter said.

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