Public Voices Ojections to Idea of Upgrading Lights and Meters

Peter Hinkle and Drew Sebelius of Schneider Electric give their presentation during Tuesday night’s council meeting in Shelbina.

Some had concerns about total cost verses savings, others opposed the idea because Shelbina is too small a town, and some just opposed everything that was brought up during the public presentation by Schneider Electric Tuesday night at the Shelbina City Council meeting.
   City Project Review
   Program Managers Peter Hinkle and Drew Sebelius of Schneider Electric were at the meeting to give a presentation on estimated proposed cost savings for upgrading lighting, street lighting and utility meters.
   They gave about a half-hour presentation highlighting these savings proposals.
   For lighting they looked at interior and exterior lighting for the City’s facilities. They counted 385 total interior and exterior fixtures that they suggested be retrofitted to LED technology. The majority would be one-on-one replacement.
   They also discussed retrofitting 326 total streetlights to LED technology.
   The metering process, which is the largest part of the proposed project, was discussed next. The current meters were tested at low, medium and high flow for accuracy. They said it typically starts to fail at the low flow levels. The meters were then broken down into many different levels, such as age, what they were used for, and many other things.
   They also looked as gas and electric meters. They suggested replacing the water and electric meters and retro-fitting the gas meters.
   Currently they meters are read by a person walking through town checking them manually. It takes about eight days a month to get this done, or 96 days a year.

The Shelby County Economic Development Board of Directors held their regular monthly meeting Thursday, January 21, in the Shelbina City Hall council chambers. In the absence of President Kip Pfannenstiel, Vice President Dave Barton called the meeting to order at approximately 6:35 PM. Others attending the meeting include Troy Renner, Executive Director; John Malcarne, Secretary; Al Dimmitt; James Watson; Chris Wise; Joe Berti; and guest Tim Lacy. Absent members were Pfannenstiel, Matt Barnhard, Kieth Pantaleo and Dan Uhlmeyer. A motion to approve the agenda was made by Al, seconded by James and approved by all.
   On the Treasurer’s Report, Chris had a question on a $3000 discrepancy between the presented 2016 budget and the amended budget. The other board members noted the $3000 was approved at the November 2015 meeting to be taken out of the board’s money market account and moved into the checking account to cover possible rent expenses in the second half of 2016. A motion to approve the Treasurer’s Report was made by Chris, seconded by Al and approved by all.
   In New Business, Troy introduced Joe Berti of Shelbina as the newest SCED board member, appointed by the Shelby County Commission to serve a three-year term. Joe moved to Shelbina with wife Vonda and family in 1977 to work at Community State Bank, retiring as bank president in July 2014. Joe thanked the board, saying he had no words of wisdom at this time, but would watch, listen and learn as he goes along.

The South Shelby Scholar Bowl season is underway. Both Varsity and Junior Varsity won last week week versus Highland. Varsity won 280-80 in an exciting game. JV won because Highland had to forfeit since they did not have enough team members. A JV practice game was played instead. In the first match of the season, the varsity lost to Clark County 460-210. JV played very competitively but got behind in the 2nd quarter on bonus questions and lost 280-100.
