City council approves resolution about prayer at meetings

By Steve Doyle

Shelbyville property owners are looking at another year with their real estate taxes being flat.

The Shelbyville City Council passed on first reading Thursday night an ordinance that would keep the ad valorem tax rate in the city at 27.5 cents per $100 of assessed value. That’s the eighth consecutive year without a change.

Personal property tax, which feeds off that rate, would decrease by about 6 percent to 35.5 cents per $100.

These rates will get a second reading and likely approval at 5:30 p.m. Thursday during a special called meeting of the council.
