Kershaw County Council will hold public hearings and hold third and final readings of a Fee-In-Lieu-Of-Taxes (FILOT) agreement and revisions to the comprehensive plan during its meeting tonight at the County Government Center.

The FILOT is a five year fee agreement between the county and Canfor Southern Pine Inc., which is planning an expansion. The company agrees to a minimum investment of $35 million over five years with an assessment ratio of 6 percent and a fixed millage rate of 324.4 mills over 30 years.

Council will also consider the comprehensive plan, which governs growth, development, zoning guidelines and other such issues and must by law be updated every 10 years.

Council will also consider second reading of an ordinance re-establishing the Clean Community Commission, as well as consider awarding a bid for epoxy coatings to be applied to concrete flooring in lab rooms at the Central Carolina Technical College.

Council will also hear an update on the Kershaw County Housing Authority from Donny Supplee, as well as a report from PLAY Foundation Executive Director Laurey Carpenter regarding Kershaw County’s recently being named a finalist for an All-American City Designation.

Kershaw County Council meets in council chambers in the County Government Center, 515 Walnut St., Camden at 5:30 p.m. today. Meetings are open to the public.
