Council approves Chautauqua Days plans

Chautauqua Days Festival plans were approved by the Shelbyville City Council Monday evening.

Vickie Davis and Brenda Elder presented plans for the May 30-June 1 event which includes bands and vendors in Forest Park. They asked for approval for the plans and to barricade the park overnight both nights.

They also told the council about plans for an auction to be held the following weekend in the park.

All events are to help raise funds for the Chautauqua Preservation project.

Also presenting a request to the council was made to waive $75 fee for use of the Scout Cabin during the 5K Run/Fun Walk on the Dacey Trail on May 3 to benefit DOVE, Inc.

DOVE Inc. is an organization to help victims of domestic violence in Shelby County.

“In the past few years, the policy has been not to waive and fees in the park,” said commissioner Gib Smart. “If we allow one, it opens the door for many others (fee waiver requests).”

Two part time police officers were approved for employment by the city council.

“Officer (Tim) McClain has taken retirement and our list of candidates has expired,” said Commissioner Brent Fogleman. “The next testing is 90 to 120 days out and we need the help during the summer months. With them we won’t have to pay so much overtime for officers.”

Officers Chris Nichols and Joey Houk are certified in other communities and live inside the county.

The council appointed commissioner Gib Smart, Police Chief David Tallman, and building inspector John Frederick as members of the Building Inspection Committee to review buildings in Shelbyville that have become a nuisance. The committee will make recommendation to the council regarding those buildings.

The council has targeted three buildings specifically, but Smart noted that there are many others in town that could be listed.
