Kershaw County Council didn’t budge Tuesday night, as it again failed to approve a relatively slight increase in millage for Kershaw County School District (KCSD) operations. No one seconded a motion made by Vice Chairman Sammie Tucker Jr. to approve a 1.6-mill increase for the schools and it died on the table. The increase would have provided the KCSD with an estimated additional $170,000, which school district officials say is strictly in anticipation of an increase in students.
