If approved by Camden City Council in November, up to $4 million in bonds will be used to help finance the renovation of Camden’s Rhame Arena and create a convention center at the Central Carolina Technical (CCTC) campus near I-20 Exit 98. City Manager Mel Pearson revealed the bond issue’s purpose as part of a public hearing held during council Oct. 28 meeting. Pearson said staff believes the cost of the projects will be “significantly below” the $4 million estimate.
