Kershaw County Council unanimously approved a record 24 amendments to the county’s proposed Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 budget and then unanimously passed that amended budget on second reading, with Councilman Jimmy Jones absent. Councilman Sammie Tucker Jr. made the long motion to include the 24 amendments, most, if not all, of which his fellow councilmen appeared to expect. Ahead of Tucker listing his amendments, Kershaw County Administrator Vic Carpenter introduced the budget, which passed first reading by title only on April 25.
