    We’d like to say thank you to the Shelbyville City Council and Mayor for ensuring some improvements will come to our fine county seat.

    By passing the 3 percent restaurant tax during Thursday’s meeting, the city not only ensured an estimated $700,000 in funding for quality of life and community enhancement projects, but they also guaranteed that our tourism commission will be getting the word out on everything we have to offer.

    Recycling is actually down about 25 percent at the center – from 516 tons last year to 389 tons this year – but that’s largely due to the City of Shelbyville’s franchise agreement with Republic Services that went into effect in early January, as well.
