City moves forward on sports complex
On split vote, despite protests
Placeholder Image
Camden City Council took another step forward on its path to build a possible YMCA of Columbia-run sports complex. On a split 3-1 vote, with Councilman Pat Partin absent and Councilman Willard Polk voting against, council authorized City Manager Kevin Bronson to enter negotiations with JHS Architecture of Columbia to design the complex. Tuesday morning’s vote came late in a lengthy meeting that started with five residents taking up most of a 30-minute public forum to lodge their protests against the complex.
