The first of three public forums pertaining to the long range school plans for Shelby County R-IV School District took place last Thursday in the South Shelby Commons area.
   A crowd of approximately 20 to 30 people were on hand for the meeting as R-IV Superintendent Tim Maddex went over in great detail the two options being considered. He talked about what each option would consist of and different costs tied to each option.
   Maddex had handouts for the public and also had a slide show presentation with the same information that he presented.
   There were two or three brief questions at the end of the presentation and the forum was then completed. He also noted that there were surveys people could fill out and that if they had any questions about the two choices, to contact him.

The Shelbina City Council learned Tuesday night that the City will be receiving nearly $30,000 thanks to a class-action lawsuit between the City of O’Fallon and CenturyLink.
   The City Council approved a settlement agreement with CenturyLink. The City of O’Fallon made the lawsuit against CenturyLink.
   The City of O’Fallon had the feeling it was getting shorted by CenturyLink on its taxes that CenturyLink was supposed to pay. The City sued and brought a class-action, meaning it sued for every city in the state of Missouri.”
   The lawsuit was settled and CenturyLink is paying $8.9 million, and the City of Shelbina will get a portion of that, according to City Clerk Tim Lacy. Shelbina’s cut is going to be around $17,800. He said there are a couple of hoops to jump through before the city can get the money. First it has to attach an ordinance stating that the City will pursue no further action against CenturyLink. The City has the option of contributing up to five percent of the money to the Missouri Municipal League for its work in wining the law suit.
