Click Photo to Enlarge  

The Shelbina City Council and Mayor Al Dimmitt talked about ways to promote along the highway things Shelbina has to offer, during Tuesday night’s regular council meeting at the Shelbina City Hall.
   TDD Funds to the City
   City Clerk Tim Lacy reported that the Shelby County Commission split up $20,000 between the towns of Shelby County, with Shelbina getting $4,000 for hosting the meetings, and the rest of the towns getting $3,000 each.
   Mayor Al Dimmitt and the council discussed the grant money that will be received at the completion of the project. They are hoping that after that money is received the commission considers dividing out more funds to the towns.
   Dimmitt said he would like to earmark the money for now. He mentioned that they have discussed advertising along the highway Shelbina’s attraction such as the lake, golf course, aquatic center. They are going to look at pricing for this and see if Mark Twain Regional Council of Governments have access to excess funds from disaster relief. MTRCG is looking at possible projects that these funds could be used for. Klusmeyer said it didn’t have to be a FEMA project. The council is also considering the bridge on the dam at the Shelbina Lake, which needs work.
   MoDOT Areas that
   Need Mowing
   City Superintendent Dennis Klusmeyer said he has received some concerns about the MoDOT areas within the city limits. He said the concern is the people are having to maintain their property, but then MoDOT’s area is not mowed.
   The City is planning to draft a letter from the Mayor to see if those areas could be mowed more often. Klusmeyer said he would like to see them mowed monthly and kept within the eight inch area.

Redistricting Would Lead to Drastic Cuts

Shelby County R-IV Superintendent Tim Maddex went over likely scenarios if the redistricting would take place in August, during the regular school board meeting on Wednesday, July 11 at the South Shelby Middle School.
   Potential Impact
   of Redistricting
   Maddex said the estimated loss of assessed valuation would be $18,649,221. If you take that total times $3.75, it comes up with a lost assessed value of $699,346. the loss of State aid would be $820,000. Maddex said that the loss of State Assess Utilities would be $299,569. That all totals $1,818,915. Maddex pointed out that this does not include Federal funding. That number would be figured out by a poverty census review done by the State.
   Maddex then looked at the expected expenses for the Clarence school building for the next school year.
   So, if you take out five teachers at a total of $360,867; a Special Ed teacher at $51,387; a Title I teacher and aide at $125,241; a Pre-K teacher at $20,274; half the cost of a health nurse at $13,311; Library staff at $38,315; Tech at $20,000; an Administrator at $75,583; operations staff at $139,727; and three staff members in transportation at $78,000. That would total $922,706.
