Kershaw County Council will hear two public presentations during its meeting Tuesday evening.

One of the presentations, rescheduled from February due to bad weather, will feature the S.C. Central Alliance.

“We are a member of the Central Alliance,” Kershaw County Administrator Vic Carpenter said, “and they will be giving an update on what’s been going on and what they’ve been doing on behalf of their members.”

The second presentation will be made by Frank Shumpert of the Kershaw County Airport Commission.

“He is one of the operators at the airport and he’s going to talk about his future plans out there,” Carpenter said.

Tuesday’s agenda also includes a public hearing on an ordinance that would allow access to Field Trial Road. Carpenter said it relates to an easement that has been on the agenda and approved by council in two readings. Three readings are required for final approval and Carpenter said a public hearing is part of the procedure. The easement would allow two property owners to cross county-owned land to access their own. Third reading is also on the agenda later in the meeting.

First readings are on the agenda for three new ordinances. The first is to change the zoning designation on a specific piece of property from RD-2 residential to I-1, industrial. The next is to provide more clarity in the Zoning and Land Development Regulations (ZLDR) regarding the definition of industrial parks and setting standards for signage at such developments.

“This is a change in the definition of an industrial park  and defining what signs must look like. It’s cleaning up and redefining some parts of the ordinance,” Carpenter said. “We’re responding to what the community is asking for.”

The third item up for first reading also regards amending the ZLDR concerning existing nonconforming uses for buildings and structures.

The final agenda item is under new business and is about equipment lease proposals. Carpenter said it’s routine business, as the county regularly leases vehicles and the council reviews the agreements. The leases allow the county to rotate vehicles in and out of service, keeping the fleet in new condition.

“Every year, we enter into a lease agreement,” Carpenter said. “It’s a four-year agreement.”

The agenda also indicates that a council work session is scheduled for after the regular meeting.

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