Council considers water issues

Friday, January 14, 2005

Aside from the continuous issue of the proposed rock quarry rezoning, the Shelbyville City Council dealt with a list of other issues during Thursday night's meeting.

Mayor Geneva Smith told the board that Councilman Fred Harrison was out of the intensive care unit at St. Thomas Hospital in Nashville and was speaking with family. He had been very ill according to Smith and he had expressed concern about missing this month's meeting of the city council, she said.

The council approved a motion to allow the mayor to approve an easement for the water line serving the Shelbyville Municipal Airport so the Utility District can install the main.

The council voted in favor of a resolution to approve the Shelbyville Power, Water and Sewer System request of an additional $1 million in funding from the State Revolving Fund loan from the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation's Division of Community Assistance to finance an cost overrun on sanitary sewer system improvements to the Little Hurricane Creek / West Shelbyville sewer.
