KCC accepts KershawHealth EMS offer
Sammie Tucker
District 2 Councilman Sammie Tucker casts his vote against accepting an offer from KershawHealth for the county to take over EMS service, with KershawHealth providing $2.636 million to sustain the service until the county can begin collecting taxes from the hospital in 2017. Tucker said his objection was to a stipulation that the county-owned property where the hospital sits be given to KershawHealth. - photo by Gary Phillips
