Smoak invites city to revisit rec options

Kershaw County Councilman Stephen Smoak
Kershaw County Councilman Stephen Smoak reached out to the city of Camden during county council’s meeting Tuesday, trying to gauge the city’s support for a joint venture with the county to replace Rhame Arena. City officials purchased a portion of the former site of Boylan-Haven-Mather Academy in March 2011 with the intention of replacing Rhame. Those plans are now on hold due to a lawsuit over the use of hospitality taxes to construct the city’s proposed sports complex and a petition to hold a referendum so city residents can vote on whether to move forward with the project.
