Kershaw County Council took its first steps Tuesday to formally accept a proposal for the county to take over emergency management services (EMS) from KershawHealth, effective July 1. Council voted 5-1 on Feb. 10 to accept an offer from KershawHealth of $2.636 million in exchange for the county giving up the property where KershawHealth sits. Councilman Sammie Tucker Jr. cast the only no vote, saying he felt transferring the property to KershawHealth would take away any “say so” the county has regarding the hospital.
