Former mayor, council react to HTAX ruling
Placeholder Image
Earlier this week, those who supported and those who opposed using hospitality tax (HTAX) revenues to pay for the construction of a proposed sports complex in Camden learned that it would have been legal to use the funds for such a project. Circuit Court Judge Alison Renee Lee signed a ruling Oct. 18, filed Monday at the Kershaw County Courthouse, determining the city of Camden could have used HTAX funds to pay for the proposed two-story 44,000-square-foot complex. Camden City Council voted to purchase a nearly 9-acre portion of the former Boylan-Haven-Mather Academy property on Campbell Street in March 2011 and announced that it planned to build the complex.
