Kiley appointed city attorney

Shelbyville has a new city attorney as a result of action Monday evening at the City Council meeting.

Decatur attorney and former Shelbyville resident Jack Kiley was appointed to the position following John Freeman’s announcement of retiring as city attorney.

John Freeman cited the passing of Mayor Roy Shuff as his reason. Freeman served as city attorney under mayors Gary Crowder and Roy Shuff. He also served as city attorney under past mayors Bill LeCrone and Lowell Goleman.

“I told Roy (Shuff) I’d stay as long as he did. I think the city is in great hands with this council,” Freeman said.

“I hate to see him leave. I consider him a friend and he’s done a great job for the city,” said acting mayor Jeff Johnson.

Kiley, son of retired circuit judge Mike and Ann Kiley of Shelbyville, also serves as attorney for the Village of Findlay. He is a mediator for Erickson, Davis, Murphy, Johnson, & Walsh Ltd. in Decatur.

“The hardest part of the job is following in John’s footsteps,” Kiley said.

In other business, the council approved the appropriations budget in the amount of $20,455,000. The budget is the maximum amount allowed for the city to spend for the year.

Commissioner Bill Shoaff reported that the west water tower is done except for the antennas that need to be put back up. The tower should be back online in about two weeks.

Commissioner Brent Fogleman reported that the recently purchased squad car is in the city’s possession but not in use yet.

Commissioner Thom Schafer reported that the new mower recently purchased should save the city about $150 per month in fuel costs.

The Army Corps of Engineers has asked for an adjustment to the electric vehicles/ATV ordinance regarding the use of those vehicles on Corps property. The council will discuss at a future meeting.

Peace Corps Fellow C.L. Tarantola reviewed her work for the city over the past year. Her three projects included the community profile, the city walk tours, and the Chautauqua usage plan. All projects will be carried forward by community members.

“We appreciate everything you have done for the city. You’ve been a great asset,” Johnson said.
