...say district officials

If voters approve a $138.8 million bond-funded list of construction projects for the Kershaw County School District (KCSD) in November, property tax millage would increase by 40 mils unless voters also approve a 1-cent sales tax. That’s why KCSD Chief Financial Officer Donnie Wilson is calling the first of four referendum funding alternatives -- or scenarios -- “ideal.” Wilson told the Kershaw County Board of School Trustees during its meeting Tuesday having voters approve both the construction and sales tax referenda would be the best outcome. “(This) is ideal under those circumstances we’re looking at right now,” Wilson said.
