  • Shelby County School Board: ‘Tighter’ budget could get worse

    The Shelby County school board approved a bleak budget on Thursday, although it balances, and according to Greg Murphy, the district director of finance, it could get worse.

    “I think last year I used the term razor thin, and this year it’s even tighter,” Murphy told the board in his report. “The budget balances, and our revenue exceeds our expenses, barely.

    “And the next two years could be even more difficult. The second year of the biennium has the potential to be very, very difficult.”

  • Diploma program showing results

    Shelby County Board of Education meetings are rarely as crowded and as uplifting as Thursday’s edition.

    The boardroom at the district’s offices, 1155 Main Street in Shelbyville, was packed with smiling faces despite the looming budget discussion that was on the agenda.

    But before the board and administration could get knee deep in figures they were presented with an early graduation candidate, one that has shown as much or more perseverance than those that will line up at Shelby County and Collins high schools this coming weekend.

  • Shelbyville plugging spot with help from county, state

    The city of Shelbyville has been forced to stop inspecting new construction after former Building Inspector and Chief Code Enforcement Officer Jeff Tennill left his position.

    Tennill recently had missed work for a few long stretches of time because of illness, and he could not be reached for comment.

    The empty position leaves the city without a building inspector, but Darrell Willard has remained as the city’s code enforcement officer, dealing with local code enforcement.
