Schafer appointed city street commissioner

The open city council seat resulting from Jeff Johnson’s appointment as acting mayor last week was filled Monday night.

“We had a number of candidates who were qualified for the seat,” said Johnson. “But we kept coming back to one person.”

Thom Schafer was sworn in as Shelbyville’s Commissioner of Streets and Public Improvement. He had previously served on the city’s Zoning Board of Appeals.

In other business, Dacey Trail committee chairman Jerry Yockey presented a memorandum of understanding with the Corps of Engineers for the work on the lastest phase of the trail.

Yockey noted that there was equipment purchased with the Foundation’s funds that is used by the Corps and that mowing is part of the city’s commitment to the trail.

The memorandum was approved.

The council approved a request by the Shelby County State Bank to eliminate one parking spot in front of the Investment Center (the old Sparks building) on South Morgan. The ordinance for signage was also approved.

A TIF funding request by Walter Lookofsky for replacement roof covering on his office was also approved. Estimated cost of the project is $10,800. Funding was approved for $5,400.

A public hearing for comment on appropriation ordinance in the amount of $20,455,000 for the 2014 fiscal year is set for July 15 at 6:45 p.m., prior to the regular council meeting.

Commissioner Bill Shoaff reported that the west water tower has the new logo on it and is waiting for the vent before going back online. He also reported that lightning has damaged two motors at the lift station and will need to be replaced.

Johnson reported that progress is being made on the mini park renovation with work on the building foundation and drainage. The pavilion has also been delivered.

Johnson also reported that they were still waiting on the engineering report.

“The historical report that was done (in 2008) does not give information for what needs to be done,” Johnson said.
