City, county may continue tourism partnership
Placeholder Image
Camden City Council will consider signing an intergovernmental agreement with Kershaw County that would pool portions of each side’s accommodation tax revenues to fund a tourism development director position employed by the city. Council will consider the agreement during its regular meeting Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. Under state law, 30 percent of a municipality or county’s accommodations are to be “allocated to a special fund and used only for advertising and promotion of tourism to develop and increase tourist attendance through the generation of publicity.” In this case, both the city and county would combine that portion of their respective accommodations tax revenue to fund the position.
