City also purchasing other properties
Placeholder Image
In addition to considering the purchase of the Robert Mills Courthouse from the Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce (see main story), Camden City Council will consider purchasing three other properties during its meeting tonight. In all three cases, the city is purchasing the properties from people who were the high bidders of 2017 Kershaw County delinquent tax sales, and are described in the resolutions as being in “deplorable condition and adjudicated to be uninhabitable” by City Building Officer John Burns and should be demolished. The three owners -- former city councilman Ned Towell, Richard Layman and Johnnie Howell -- are expected to obtain title in early 2019.
