Herbert Farber and the Camden Committee for Responsible Government Inc. (CCRG) filed an action at the Kershaw County Courthouse Wednesday seeking a permanent injunction against the city of Camden. The injunction would stop the city from using hospitality tax funds to construct a proposed sports complex that could be run by the YMCA of Columbia. In the filing, Farber and the CCRG stipulate that state code allowed the city to impose the 2 percent hospitality tax in 2009 and to use those funds, exclusively, for specific purposes including “tourism-related buildings, including but not limited to, civic centers, coliseums and aquariums; and … tourism-related cultural, recreational, or historic facilities.”
