The Shelbyville Board of Aldermen met Monday, October 4, at the city office.
Present were Mayor Mike Vanskike, Aldermen Brad Willey, Jerry Myers and Rob Southers, City Clerk Gina Mesmer, City Superintendent Randy Shores and city employee Nathan Minear.
The board reviewed the quarterly budget.
The city received an Abatement Order of Consent contract on the lagoon from DNR. The city will have one year from acceptance to complete the UV system at the lagoon. There is an administrative penalty of $3,667. Mayor Vanskike will call and see about getting it reduced. Alderman Willey made a motion to sign the contract after Mayor Vanskike contacts DNR about a reduction in the penalty, if reduced DNR will send a new contract. Alderman Southers, second the motion. Motion passed.
Pictures were taken on the three houses marked as historical on the demo grant. They will be sent to the State for approval. Mark Twain Regional Council of Governments will do another inspection the week of October 12. Cindy Hultz will also be getting the contracts ready for the homeowners.
Ozark Applicators will not make it this year to spray the inside of the water tower. They have lost employees but will honor the contract in 2022.
Shores purchased clean chip rock from Emery Sapp to work on the streets.
The minutes and bills were approved.
The next meeting will be Monday, November 1 at 6 p.m.
