The Shelbina City Council heard complaints of messy properties around town, and reviewed the proposed 2017-18 budget for the fiscal year during Tuesday night’s regular meeting at the Shelbina City Hall.
   Messy Properties
   Shelbina resident Roger Starmer was at the meeting to express concerns of several properties throughout the town that are littered with junk and old vehicles. He said that he would like to see if there was any way the City could do a better job of enforcing a cleanup.
   Shelbina Police Chief Jerry Fenton explained to him the process, and noted that it takes a minimum amount of days before the City can act after sending a warning letter to the resident. Starmer said the current process isn’t working. Fenton and the Mayor and council agreed that it is difficult to enforce. Dimmitt asked City Clerk Tim Lacy if he could get together with City Attorney John Wilcox and find if there is a quicker route they could take to handle this issue. Starmer also handed out a petition with approximately 70 signatures on it from local people who supported his concerns.
   Starmer did note that with the recent demolition grant process that the City went through, that it does look somewhat better than it has in recent years. But it still has more work to be done.
   Proposed Budget
   The mayor and council, along with City Superintendent Dennis Klusmeyer, City Clerk Tim Lacy and Assistant Superintendent Rob Trivette reviewed the proposed budget for the upcoming fiscal year.
   Klusmeyer hit the highlights as they quickly went over some of the numbers in each department. He took time to explain the process to newly appointed board member Allan Denham.
   Council members will take the information home and review it in depth. They will then come back for consideration of approval at the next meeting.
