KERSHAW - The town of Kershaw will look more carefully at a proposal to cut down 17 trees on Matson Street to repair sidewalks in what some consider the most beautiful area of town.

Town Council voted unanimously Monday to table a resolution to remove the towering trees and their roots, which are causing the sidewalks along the street to crack.

The estimated cost to remove the trees, rebuild the sidewalks and plant new trees is $75,000.

Town Administrator Tony Starnes said the sidewalks are dangerous, as some are raised six to eight inches.
