The Shelby County R-IV Board discussed future plans for the district during its regular board meeting on Wednesday, Aug. 19.
   Vision Group
   Maddex presented follow up information from the last Vision group meeting. He put what each groups results were. “Some of the common themes I heard was build a Shelbina Elementary in Shelbina by a group. I heard build a Shelbina Elementary out here (high school-middle school location), and I’ve heard lets look at band, Ag and weight room and maybe use our reserves for (improving) that, to get three of our big concern areas checked off the list,” Maddex explained.
   He said he was thinking about the possibility of building a bigger Ag space, remodeling the current Ag space and do a fine art, band and choir, to keep the middle school kids from going down to the high school end. “Then the current band room could be looked into becoming the weight room facility. It would double the space that they currently have,” he said. Maddex said he wants to know what the next step is. He said he could get estimates on those possible projects. Maddex said he would like to see a new Ag structure attached to the current campus structure. Board member Scott Gough pointed out that with the way the budget is set up there is quite a bit of money that could be spent on projects like this. He also pointed out that this was the plan all along, was for the district to spend a considerable amount of money on projects like these mentioned that needed to be done. The board, administrators and Maddex discussed different scenarios of what direction to go and how to pay for whatever they decide.

Shelbina City Council Hears Concerns About Condition of West Elm Street

By Thad Requet
   Concerned citizens attended the regular City Council meeting in Shelbina on Tuesday evening to express concerns they have with West Elm.
   Chuck Webb, Paul Studer, Dan Turney and Bruce Schwada all voiced their concerns over the West Elm resurfacing project that is getting ready to take place next month. Webb said he’s under the impression that the City is stopping just past Studer’s house where the cement crosses the road. Webb said he wishes the City would consider going the rest of the way west to where Schwada Builders is located. He pointed out that it started out as a hard surface road to begin with. It was torn up and resurfaced and had to sit for awhile before a hard surface could be put back on it. Webb said they are on year three. He said he was wanting to know why they were stopping, instead of going the rest of the way. He noted that they are excluding one house and one business by doing it that way. “I know you have tried to spray to keep the dust down, but it’s just not lasting very long. And the dust and rocks are an issue. There are a lot of people who use that road and many of them go 40 or 50 miles per hour. I’ve got grandchildren trying to play in the front yard and they can’t because of the dust and rocks,” he explained. He said that if it was a hard surface they wouldn’t have the dust and rock issue. He acknowledged that it would still cause a speeding issue.
   Webb said that he and Turney feel that if it’s a money issue, they wish the City would consider holding off on their street (North Livingston) and using that money to put toward West Elm. Turney said he agreed and felt normal maintenance would take care of North Livingston and he added Burlington Street as well. “I feel that if that can’t be done, than the remainder of West Elm should be shot with oil and chips to keep that dust down,” Turney said.
   Studer said that speeders are an issue as well as the dust and he also noted that large trucks using the street are an issue. Bruce Schwada noted that they have had to purchase copy machine because of the dust issue on the road. He said they have to clean them every day.
   Mayor Al Dimmitt said they will have to take a look at the numbers and see what can be done on that street. Dimmitt asked Klusmeyer to come back at the next meeting with some cost estimates for different options to be done on West Elm Street.
