County council receives fire service report

Kershaw County Council heard an update on the county’s fire service during its meeting Tuesday. The report, put together after a lengthy study undertaken by an ad hoc committee appointed last year by Council Chair Julian Burns, confirms and categorically pinpoints what the county has generally known for some time -- mainly, the fire service needs some help, and that help is going to cost money. “What does not need to get lost in the discussion, however, is the ultimate benefit to taxpayers,” Councilman Ben Connell, who chaired the ad hoc committee, said, pointing out that investment in fire service improvements will ultimately improve ISO ratings, which ultimately means insurance premium decreases for homeowners and business owners.
