At Tuesday night's meeting of the Shelby County Fiscal Court, magistrates approved the second reading of an ordinance to provide for the establishment and displaying of addresses, residential, commercial and agricultural.

A second reading was also approved for an ordinance relating to flood damage prevention.

Magistrates also gave Shelby County EMS the go-ahead to purchase four new ambulances at a price of $437,156, to replace and supplement an aging fleet.

Magistrates also authorized Shelby County Judge-Executive Rob Rothenburger to execute a legal agreement with the Department of Agriculture in the amount of $10,000 for dead-animal removal.

Magistrates also gave approval for the road department to advertise for bids for the resurfacing of Webb Road.

Also, magistrates voted to accept a  bid from River City Development for $45,205 for masonry work at the detention center. They also voted to reject a bid from ABR Construction for $103,950 to do roofing work at the detention center, feeling both that the bid may be too high and also that they needed to readvertise the job in order to receive additional bids.

Magistrates also approved the allocation of $500 each for two festivals: the Waddy Labor Day Festival and Cropper Days.
