The Shelbyville City Council braved the cold and snow Thursday for its first meeting of the new year.

The council eased into 2010 with a relatively quiet meeting.

Attorney Mark Dean represented the members of Clubhouse Drive in the Fairway Crossing subdivision, asking the city to bring the private road into its system.

The council will wait until the Jan. 21 meeting to make a decision, allowing Dean time to get proof that the majority of the citizens on the street are in favor of the move into the city system.

Also at the meeting:

• The council approved new city personnel policies on vehicle use, return to work and violence in the work place, and enhanced an already existing Americans with Disabilities Act policy

• Approved first readings of ordinances changing position descriptions for public works employees. The position of Superintendent of Public Works and Maintenance Supervisor will keep the same titles. Maintenance workers I, II and III will be changed to Maintenance technicians I, II and III. Only the position of Maintenance Technician II will be new.

• City Attorney Frank Chuppe presented a Municipal Order for an Open Records Request policy. There would be no changes to open records requests, but the policy would give the staff a procedure to follow. The order was held until the Jan. 21 meeting, while the rates for residential and commercial requests were reevaluated.
