Click Photo to Enlarge  

The Shelbina City Council heard City Superintendent Dennis Klusmeyer give a rough list of projects that he plans to have done this summer, during Tuesday night’s council meeting.
   Summer Project List
   Klusmeyer started with the electric department he said it’s kind of two-fold. They have distribution projects lined up to work on. He listed several places for re-builds including East Maple, West Wood and Prairie Street. He said there are three locations in town where they have old number four copper line hanging on the primary side. He said they want to get that down and out of the system.
   In the gas department, the project this year will be a long alley stretch between East Spruce and East Walnut that goes from Second Street to Fourth Street. They will do a main replacement in that location, as well as on Myers Street between West College and West Wood.
   In the water and sewer department they plan to get the head works project started this year with the copper translator.
   On the water side they plan to start a main replacement in the Cramer, East Mill and Central area on the southeast part of town.

U.S. Highway 36/Interstate 72 Corridor Transportation Development District Announces Repeal of Half-Cent Sales Tax
Click Photo to Enlarge  

The U.S. Highway 36 – Interstate 72 Corridor Transportation Development District announces the repeal of its half-cent sales tax, effective July 31, 2017. The District’s sales tax was established on January 1, 2006 for a period of up to 15 years to support paying for a 52 mile expansion project of U.S. Highway 36 from Hannibal west to Macon, MO. The District’s Board of Directors authorized the repeal of the sales tax at a special meeting held March 16, 2017, in Shelbina, MO.
   Since its inception, the District has applied its sales tax revenues to repay the principal amount of the Missouri Transportation Finance Corporation loan in the amount of $34,299,339.63, which was used to pay for a portion of the U.S. Highway 36 expansion project. Based on an analysis of current and anticipated sales tax revenues, the District’s Board of Directors determined that, as of July 31, 2017, the District would have sufficient funds to repay the principal amount of the loan and to pay the cost of abolishment of the District and any other liabilities that it has or may incur in connection with the continued operation of the District until such time as the District is abolished. The District’s Board of Directors unanimously approved the repeal of the sales tax. By taking this action, the Board of Directors is terminating the sales tax nearly three and a half years earlier than the 15-year period approved by the voters.
