The Shelby County R-IV School Board continued talks about elementary school options during its regular monthly meeting at the middle school library on Wednesday, Nov. 8.
   Board Reviews
   Elementary Options
   Tom Pisarkiewicz and Larry Woodring from L.J. Hart & Company were at the meeting to talk to the board and Superintendent Tim Maddex about Elementary school options.
   The first thing they talked about was the differences between a bond issue and a lease purchase. The bond issue would require a 4/7 majority vote compared to a lease purchase that would require a simple majority.
   The board saw five different options and estimated costs for each option. The first two options are for a new South Shelby Elementary School at the South Shelby location. This would consolidate students from Clarence and Shelbina into one location. The estimated cost of a new South Shelby Elementary School with 900 square foot classrooms would be $8,004,118. The board also was shown a cost for the same project with 750 square foot classrooms. That estimated cost was $7,407,418. They are working on an estimated cost that for the same option with more shared space outside the classrooms to cut down on the overall costs. Those numbers weren’t available at press time, but we’ll try to have them in next week’s issue of the Shelbina Weekly.
   The next option was to renovate Clarence Elementary to have all students from Shelbina and Clarence in that location. The estimated cost to renovate Clarence Elementary is $5,217,241.90.
   The next options was to renovate Shelbina Elementary to have all students from Shelbina and Clarence in that location. The estimated cost to renovate Shelbina Elementary is $4,494,640.80.
   A final option was to renovate Shelbina Elementary, just for Shelbina students. That option was $3,128,430.80.

The Shelbina City Council discussed how to approach the issue of dilapidated vehicles on private property within the city limits of Shelbina, during Tuesday night’s regular council meeting at the Shelbina City Hall.
   Dilapidated Vehicles
   City Attorney John Wilcox said he liked the cooperative abatement program where the City would offer to help remove the vehicle and not charge the patron. He said they could budget funds to help take care of this issue.
   He noted that the ordinance says that the City can have the vehicle towed. Wilcox suggested working a out a deal with someone local to come pick up the vehicles after the City has gone through its process.
   If the vehicle is hauled away, it can be sold and the money can be re-couped. Wilcox said he would prefer the towing company sell it and keep the meeting.
   Another thing he felt strong about was that the City should hold a hearing on these matters. He said it will head off problems.

The Shelby County 911 is getting some much needed upgrades to its equipment, which will allow 911 to run more smoothly and effectively.
   According to Shelby County 911 Coordinator Mary Lu McConnell, the first step was getting new radios installed. The first was installed last week in the Sheriff’s office and the second was being installed Monday on the 911 side.
   They also purchased three new computers for the mapping software. Those purchases for the mapping were through Brandon Tarbet.
   McConnell said that once the call-taking equipment gets installed they can start interfacing everything together with the mapping, calls, and radio equipment.
