A new ordinance that would have given Kershaw County the authority to demolish uninhabitable dwellings failed to pass third and final reading Tuesday by Kershaw County Council on a 3-4 vote. First and second readings of the ordinance, patterned after state law, passed unanimously in previous meetings. Two people spoke out against the ordinance during the public comment portion of Tuesday’s meeting.
