City Council looks at other projects

Shelbyville City Council approved plans for Scarecrow Daze and agreements for projects in addition to hearing the Chautauqua committee plans last week.

Brenda Elder presented a request for temporary street closures during the Scarecrow Daze activities October 11, 12, and 13. Those streets include Washington Street west of the Courthouse, one-half block of South Broadway, and North First Street between Washington and Morgan and Broadway and Walnut.

The request was approved.

City engineer Alan Spesard presented a grant application for the transportation enhancement program regarding the bike trail phases 8 and 9.

Phase 8 includes Route 16 and Washington, north to First Street, then north on Morgan. The work includes sidewalks and drainage improvement on Morgan Street.

“There will be widening of Morgan Street to maintain the parking and have a bike path,” Spesard said. He said the street will be widened 8 feet.

Estimated cost of the program is $1.29 million with 80 percent paid through the federal grant and 20 percent through city funds. The work will becompliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

“I suggest that money from the TIF and Business District be used for our portion,” Spesard said.

Spesard said the a Resolution of Support and a Local Assurance Agreement to prove the city’s share of the matching funds.

Mayor Jeff Johnson said that projections of the TIF funds would support the project.

“We come this far (on the trail), I’d hate to see it stopped,” said Commissioner Gib Smart.

The council approved the resolution and the local assurance agreement.

The council also approved an amended Neighborhood Vehicle Ordinance banning the use of neighborhood vehicles on Corps property.

“The vehicles must have tags and plates to be allowed on the property,” said city attorney Jack Kiley.

Under old business, Commissioner Bill Shoaff reported that the water line on North Sixth Street has been repaired and the flow meters have been repaired and new ones have been installed. He added that insurance covered the lightning strike on the flow meters.
