Kershaw County Council will review a series of goals and objectives it came up with at a recent council retreat during its regular meeting tonight.

At the retreat, held Jan. 29 and 30, council came up with a series of short term “do now” and long term “do later” goals. The short term goals are further classified as high, medium or low priority issues. Among the high priority “do now” goals are executing council’s economic development infrastructure improvements plan; activating VisionKershaw 2030; creating, completing and adopting a county-wide transportation plan; and addressing solid waste issues, possibly including an increase in the number of recycling center locations.

Also on the agenda tonight are third and final reading to rezone a piece of property on U.S. 1 in Cassatt from RD-1 (residential) to GD (general development) in order to facilitate the construction of a Family Dollar store; review of a policy recommendation for the use of council chambers by non-governmental entities; and a bid recommendation to modernize the elevator in the Kershaw County Courthouse.

Today’s meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. in council chambers at the Kershaw County Government Center, 515 Walnut St., Camden, and is open to the public.
