Shelbina City Council Gets Information on Possible Sidewalk Project; Discusses Streets

The Shelbina City Council heard a representative from MECO Engineering out of Hannibal talk about steps for a possible sidewalk grant project, and discussed what long term approach to take dealing with street improvements. This took place during Tuesday night’s council meeting at the Shelbina City Hall.
   Possible Sidewalk
   The council listened at what steps would take place in a potential new sidewalk project along the north side of East Maple (Business 36) in Shelbina leading to the theater.
   He said it would be a three phase project, with the first being filling out a TAP grant application or any other grant application. The second phase would be engineering design and the third phase would be field construction.
   He said MECO Engineering could do the grant process for the City, who usually works with Mark Twain Regional Council of Governments. He also noted that they could work with MTRCG if needed. The tap grant application period runs from Sept. 1 to Nov. 1. The grant is an 80/20 match with the City paying the 20 percent of the cost.
   The first step would be to get approved for the project by MoDOT. The council took no action on the matter during the meeting.
   City Street
   The council has yet to find a time where all members could meet to look at the streets as a group. The discussion in the meeting centered around whether to spend the budgeted $50,000 this year on chip and seal, or to roll it over into next year and spend more money and fix the streets with hot mix.
   Most of the council was for this. Alderman Babe Simpson said he just didn’t want to see them get behind on the streets. He said he understood the reserves will drop if they dip into them for projects each year, but he didn’t want to neglect the streets anymore than necessary.

It was reported in the Shelbina last week that local authorities apprehended three people who had fled the scene of an accident around 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 3.
   It was also reported that Roderick D. Strong, 31, of Kansas City had been arrested for driving while suspended, felony leaving the scene of an accident, and possession of a misdemeanor marijuana. Another suspect was turned over to juvenile authorities and the third person was released.
   The Missouri State Highway Patrol later released the following report from that accident.
   A 2002 Chevrolet Trailblazer driven by Strong was eastbound when he attempted to pass a 2000 Ford Ranger driven by James C. Racich, 56, of Munster, Ind. Strong’s vehicle struck Racich’s vehicle in the backside causing Racich to lose control. His truck crossed the median and the westbound lanes and ended up in a field north of the highway. Strong’s vehicle came to rest in the median.
   Racich suffered minor injuries and was taken by Salt River Ambulance to Hannibal Regional Hospital. His vehicle was totaled as a result of the accident. Strong’s vehicle sustained extensive damage. Strong, who wasn’t wearing his seat belt according to the patrol, did not have insurance.
