  • â?¢Shelbyville has too many manhole covers and drains sunk so far below or raised so far above street surfaces that theyâ??re capable of causing vehicle wheel alignment damage.

    --Not to mention knots on your tires.

    â?¢Has anyone noticed an odd odor around the Belmont Avenue-Cliffside Drive intersection recently? It seems to have lessened some in the past few weeks.

    --No, but thanks to you and your blog I will drive by there on my way to lunch today! Thanks!

    â?¢Should an intoximeter be installed at Fishermanâ??s Park? It appears much of the activity there is fueled by alcohol.

    --don't forget the drugs!

    â?¢From a parking space point of view, Shelbyville needs a new post office.

    --I thought you were supposed to dread going to the post office?

    â?¢In other places, especially in the northeast, old schools and public buildings are converted into condominiums or apartments. Wonder if the old Central High/Harris Middle School or Union Street hospital buildings could be sold for such uses. Or do we want to sell them and the valuable land they occupy to private developers? Keep in mind, if the city/county did as they should and didnâ??t grant deep-pocketed developers any tax breaks, privitized ex-public land could bring in quite a bit of income for the county.

    --Good points. I just couldn't live in some apartments that used to be the hospital though. I think the plans for that is to make an assisted living enviornment. What this county really needs is a new jail!

  • The assisted living thing has been discussed, but it's not a foregone conclusion yet.
