Kershaw County Council will hold a special called meeting at 5 p.m. today, immediately before this evening’s regular meeting, to honor former Chairman Austin M. Sheheen Jr. Sheheen is one of two former chairmen to serve on council for more than 20 years. He was first elected to council in January 1967 and served as chairman from January 1975 to December 1990. In the coming weeks, council will also honor former Chairman Steve Kelly Jr. During the regular meeting, council will consider a pair of resolutions Tuesday evening extending existing agreements with Waste Management of South Carolina Inc. to collect and transport the county’s solid waste and with Richland County for the disposal of the waste.
