Macon R-1 Superintendent Scott Jarvis told the Shelbina Weekly on Friday about his thoughts and views pertaining to the possible split of the Shelby County R-IV School District..
   When asked if he and his board have had any in-depth discussions about it he said not really at this time. “Basically all we’ve done is just talk in general. This is something we didn’t ask for, they came and met with us. I met with Mr. (Tim) Farmer and he said what about this, this and this.”
   Jarvis said they would take whatever steps are required. “Legally we can’t say no, If they get the petitions signed by both parties, we have to take it to the vote. What I would prefer to happen is that South Shelby and Clarence work it out on their own and everything just stay there. That way we have a good working relationship with that district,” Jarvis said.

The Shelbina City Council discussed and took action on setting a rate for those who camp at the lake more than the regular allotted time, during Tuesday night’s regular council meeting at the Shelbina City Hall.
   Resident Camper Rate
   The City has been losing money on campers who stay at the lake on a permanent basis during the summer months, using it as an established residence.
   They are using more utilities than what the City is charging for. This isn’t a huge issue with a lot of people, but it is an issue with a few campers.
   Regular part time campers are getting charged $1,200.
   The council had talked about charging the daily rate of $15 per day for the entire summer to those who take advantage of this. That figure came out to $3,100. They would later decide to charge $10 a day rate bringing the total cost to $2,100, the same that is charged to the camp host.
   Campers will be required to sign paperwork determining the price based on how often the camper stays at the campsite. This cost is to help cover the cost of water, electricity and trash and any other expenses that are generated during their time out there.
   Councilman Babe Simpson said that if the City wanted permanent residents out there they would have to go a different direction anyway to make it cost effective. He said he didn’t feel the lake’s campsites were set up to be permanent residents.
