A landscaping project underway for Washington Street has progressed another step now that the contractor has been selected.

At Thursday night’s meeting of the Shelbyville City Council, members selected Mike Kennedy Landscaping with a bid of $137,501.

“It’s a nice design,” said Jennifer Herrell, city engineer/director of Public Works. “We are eager to start and our goal is to finish in the spring.”
