Workers from Line Brothers have been replacing power poles on West Wood Street in Shelbina.

With the warmer weather that has decended on the area in the last week, it provided an opportunity for Line Brothers to begin its power pole replacement project in Shelbina.
   The job, which was originally scheduled to take place this spring, got underway this week and poles on West Wood were replaced.
   Shelbina City Superintendent Dennis Klusmeyer said in the Jan. 9 Shelbina City Council meeting that he had been contacted by Line Brothers that they were planning to start earlier.

The Shelbina City Council approved the six month financial statements as presented by City Clerk Tim Lacy, and heard Gary Luck of Luck Humphreys & Associates give a report on the annual City audit, during Tuesday night’s regular meeting.
   Six Month
   Budget Review
   Lacy went over the six month budget review with the council. Overall, the City is sitting at a positive balance of $4,475.31.
   He pointed out that the Police Department has revenues of $41,235.22 compared to expenses of $198,006.57 to this point of the year. Lacy noted that there is an inter city office transfer from one budget to another of $283,825 and he mentioned another $115,000 that could be moved into the Police Department’s budget. Lacy said they are about on pace. He did note that the police department’s revenues for fines is at only about 38 percent of what was budgeted at this point. He said that like last year when they were a little short in the police department, it wasn’t in expenses, but the revenue generated.
   He also noted that the municipal court is at a deficit at this time of $10,333.85. Again the expenses are fine but the revenues are down, Lacy explained.

A significant decrease in enrollment numbers at the elementary level has been the main reason board members are looking at consolidation in the Shelby County R-IV School District.
   Since 1991, the K-5 enrollment numbers at Shelbina Elementary have decreased from 299 to 216, a 27.8 percent reduction. In Clarence the numbers have dropped from 153 to 96 students, a 37 percent reduction. That number is trending to continue to decline.
   Inequality of educational resources for district students is another concern. This has been discussed in board meetings as well.

Historical Society to Add Library with Expansion
Click Photo to Enlarge  
Jerry Kaser of Bethel has been busy making renovations and improvements to convert the old Grille 109 Restaurant into an addition to the Shelby County Historical Soceity.

Thanks to the donations of many, the vision of a few and the drive of one person, Shelby County has one of the nicest and most comprehensive historical societies around. That one person with the drive is Kathleen Wilham.
   Wilham has the drive and the vision that has made the historical society stand out as one of the best for a county of this size. And at this time, she is in the process of making it better.
   With the purchase of the Grille 109 restaurant building in 2017, it made for a natural expansion. Wilham is planning to turn that particular structure into a library for the facility.
   Right now Kaser is getting down and dirty. He has had to deal with moisture issues and has put in a sub floor for building. They will be putting in new ceiling fans as well. She said they also plan to put new front windows and insulation throughout to tighten the building up and make it more efficient.
