Kershaw County Council awarded bids for two long awaited road repair projects during its meeting Tuesday night at the County Government Center in Camden.

Work will soon begin on two drainage culverts that were severely damaged during the historic floods of Oct. 2015.  Council awarded a bid of $478,000 to Site Concepts Inc., a Lugoff-based company to replace the culvert on Belton Road. Council awarded a bid of $401,500 to Columbia- based CR Jackson  Inc., who will replace the culvert at Brazell Road.

Both culverts are located in the West Wateree area of the county.

County Administrator Vic Carpenter told council the county will receive full reimbursement for this work with the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) reimbursing 75 percent of the cost and the state reimbursing 25 percent of the cost. However, the county will have to pay the cost up front. He said the state has usually paid within 90-120 days of submission; he did not know what the time frame would be for FEMA.

Council approved the bids unanimously.

Councilmen Jimmy Jones and Sammy Tucker Jr. were absent from the meeting. Jones was on vacation out of town with his family; Tucker was out on business travel.

Council also held a  public hearing, then third and final reading, on an ordinance establishing a jointly owned and operated business/industrial park with Chesterfield County. The ordinance passed unanimously.

Council also received a brief overview regarding the county’s newly upgraded and updated website. 

Also, council approved a motion, made by Councilman Dennis Arledge, to cancel the July 25 regular meeting of council due to the fact there is currently only one item, a public presentation, on the agenda. If a matter or matters arise that requires council’s attention, Council Chairman Julian Burns may call for a meeting provided 24 hour notice is given to the public and the media.
