KERSHAW – The creation of a skatepark in Kershaw remains a divisive issue for town leaders.
Town Council voted 3-3 at its Thursday, Jan. 17, meeting on a request of about $32,000 from the Kershaw Community Park Council. The money would go toward new surfacing on which to install ramps and other skateboarding equipment.
Council members Michael Cook, Mayor Wayne Rhodes and Morris Russell voted in favor of the request. Council members Wade Hunter, Sonya Poole and Randy Seegars voted against it.
Councilman Eddie Coates was absent.
