The Shelby County R-IV School Board held a special meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 3 to go over financial information with a representative from the L.J. Hart Company, pertaining to future plans of the district.
   The most the district can bond for a future project is $8.8 million. With that said the board started going over options of what could be done. One thing Superintendent Tim Maddex and the board discussed was a bond issue vs. an operating levy increase to pay the lease. They looked at the pros and cons of both.
   Maddex told board members there are safety nets with the bond issue. If they came up short with the lease, it would have to be made up out of district funds, Maddex explained.
   They looked at three options. The first was to build a new elementary school at the high school/middle school location for both Clarence and Shelbina students, and update the middle school and high school to code. That would take the $8.8 million. The second option would be to build an elementary school at the high school/middle school location for both Clarence and Shelbina students. That would cost $6.5 million. The third option was to roughly fix the current buildings to meet today’s current codes. That would cost $5.5 million.

After hearing some concerns, the Shelbina City Council took a long look at utility deposits for Real Estate inspections and landlord maintenance during Tuesday night’s regular council meeting at the Shelbina City Hall.
   Public Comment
   During the public comment part of the meeting, Joe Glover expressed concerns about utility deposits. He explained that he wanted to turn on the utilities to shampoo and vacuum the carpets in one of his rentals. “I couldn’t do it without getting my deposits in line. Moving deposits from one place to another and then adding to it with another check. I go back and want my money back, but you have to read my meter and it has to go through the board. It will be up into October before I can get my money back,” he said. Glover said he had some ideas that would be better than what the City is currently doing. He said the City needs to be more user friendly to entice people to want to come to town.
   Mayor Al Dimmitt explained what the process used to be and what it was changed to. He said they changed it to a flat rate to try to simplify things.
