Chautauqua gets reprieve from city

Holding to his promise at the last city council meeting, Shelbyville commissioner Brent Fogleman moved to rescind his motion to gather bids for demolition costs of the Chautauqua building.

Fogleman had made the motion at the March 4 meeting after the announcement that insurance on the 110-year-old building had been dropped by the insurance company.

Commissioner Bill Shoaff, who had seconded the March 4 motion, rescinded his second.

Commissioner Jeff Johnson reported that the structural engineer’s report has not been completed and that the engineer wished to make a second visit to the building. Johnson said he expects to have the report at the April 15 meeting.

In other business the council :

- Approved the request for a temporary street closure for West South Third Street between Chestnut and Long on April 13 for an auction.

- Approved the purchase of a truck for the street department.

- Tabled a request for a resolution for a city employee for IMRF credit for military service

- Approved a city wide cleanup day for April 29. Fred Honaker will pickup scrap metal and electronics at curbside. Rain date will be May 6.

Johnson reported that work on South Fifth and Hickory streets railroad crossing was expected to begin April 2.

“Save Our Chautauqua” Facebook page founder Vonda McConnell reported that the fundraisers held Saturday netted about $2200 and that more fundraisers are planned.

“We are just going to keep plugging away. We hope to raise more than $2000 at each fundraiser,” McConnell said. She added that the Facebook page continues to grow.
