Where Have the Trains Gone

Train traffic through Shelby County has become almost non-existent. What used to be a common sight is now becoming a rarity. Railroad layoffs nation-wide have played a part in the lack of trains.

If you’ve lived in Shelby County for any considerable time at all, you know that trains rolling through each of the towns aligned on Highway 36 is just a way of life.
   The tracks have been unusually quiet for the last several weeks, with just a small percentage of the normal amount of train traffic rolling through.
   Crews have continued to maintain the line that runs through the county, working on switches, crossing gates and other things that have to be kept up with. But the sights and sounds of an actual train rumbling through has been missing.

The Shelbina City Council held its latest regular meeting on Tuesday, April 26 in the Shelbina City Hall.
   Drug Court
   The council revisited the option of continuing its annual donation to the Macon/Shelby Drug Court. Council members had earlier voted against giving money this year since other towns in Shelby County weren’t asked to contribute as well.
   The County contributes $1,000 a year. The council passed a motion to match the County’s contribution and give $1,000. Mayor Al Dimmitt said he thinks that they should give the funding on the condition that other towns in the county besides Shelbina are asked as well.
   Insurance Presentation
   Dave Hickman, a consultant from MIRMA Health Care Plan talked to the Mayor and Council about what MIRMA had to offer through its insurance pool.
   He presented information to the board showing two different policy options. The presentation was a brief summary and Hickman said he would be available to talk to the council members in more detail about questions they may have if needed.
