Kershaw County’s team of All-America City representatives will address Camden City Council during its regular meeting tonight. There will be no afternoon work session.

A team representing all of Kershaw County, including the city of Camden and the towns of Bethune and Elgin, as well as the Kershaw County School District and other entities, won one of 10 All-America City awards for 2018 from the National Civil League (NCL) in late June.

Not only did the team -- which included Camden Mayor Alfred Mae Drakeford -- win one of the All-America City community awards, but it brought home two other awards, making it essentially a clean sweep for Kershaw County. On behalf of the team, member Johnny Deal accepted the only 2018 NCL Social Media Award; and outh member Clinton Washington, a recent Lugoff-Elgin High School graduate, won one of only two NCL John Clark Youth Leadership Awards.
Also on the agenda tonight:

• Camden Municipal Election Commission Chairman Bruce Little will present a candidates report for the Nov. 6 General Election.

• Camden Fire Department (CFD) Assistant Chief Eddie Gardner will make a presentation on the CFD’ annual smoke detector blitz.

• Camden Archives and Museum Director Katherine Richardson will present information on topics. One will is an exhibit on the history and archaeology of Fort Motte; the other topic is titled “The Boykin Spaniel Invasion.”

• Council will consider proclaiming this week as National Health Center Week.

• Council will consider an ordinance amending Chapter 152 of the city code (Flood Damage Prevention).

• Council will consider authorizing the consumption of beer and wine during an upcoming Patrick Davis concert.

• Council will also consider authorizing the consumption of beer and wine during Jammin’ for the Soul.

The meeting will start at 6 p.m. on the second floor of Camden City Hall, 1000 Lyttleton St., and is open to the public.
