Lacey Takes Over as New Shelbina City Clerk
Click Photo to Enlarge  
Tim Lacey is the new Shelbina City Clerk replacing Mary Lou Craigg who resigned this summer to take the same position at Macon.

Tim Lacey is from Kansas City, but he grew up in the Chicago area. After visiting Shelbina he realized he liked the area and decided to move here. So when the Shelbina City Clerk position became available earlier this summer, Lacey decided to throw his hat in for a chance at the job.
   He was living in the Dallas area and working a contract job where he could work out of his home. When that job was completed in July of 2013, he decided to move to Shelbina.
   Lacey has a background in the mortgage industry. He has spent the last two years working with litigation underwriting. Prior to that he had an I.T. position for Bank of America. He will be able to bring some of that experience to the City job.

Shelby County R-IV Superintendent Tim Maddex and his board have come down to two options to try to pick from to put on the April ballot for future improvements in the district.
   The first option would be to build a new Shelbina Elementary and to make improvements to the Clarence Elementary down the road. The second option would be to build a new elementary school for both Clarence and Shelbina students at the high school/middle school campus.
   New Shelbina Elementary
   and Fix Up Clarence
   The total cost of the first option would be $11,105,736. That would be for the new elementary school in Shelbina, which would cost $7,435,332, and an additional $3,670,404 for improvements for Clarence Elementary down the road. The choice to do the Clarence improvements would have to go back before the voters, according to Maddex.
   With this option there would be a deferred maintenance cost at the high school and middle school of $1 million, with an additional $685,134.60 coming out of district funds. The annual 20 year cost would be $20,343,336 for the new Shelbina Elementary. The new Shelbina Elementary plus improvements at Clarence would total $23,160,037.
