Board of Works promotes police patrolman to detective

With the recommendation from City of Shelbyville Police Chief Mark Weidner, the Board of Works and Public Safety officially promoted patrolman Mark Newman to detective within the Shelbyville Police Department on Tuesday morning at City Hall.

The board also approved Globe Asphalt Paving to handle the city’s asphalt overlay projects later this year. Globe submitted a bid of $522,962.45 at the Board of Works meeting on Jan. 18.

The overlay project will include work on Fourth Street (Lincoln St. to Quesada St.), Doran Avenue (Miller St. to Meridian St.), Revello Street (Parker Ave. to Alpine Ave.), Shelby Street (Doran Ave. to Ninth St.), Victor Place (Franklin St. to Elliott St.), West Street (Doran Ave. to Evans St.), Conrey Street (alley to River Road), Conrey Street (Washington St. to Mechanic St.), Jackson Street (McLane St. to dead end east of Frances St.), Locust Street (Miller Ave. to West St.), Morrison Park Drive (Shelby St. to northeast turn), Parker Avenue (south dead end to Parker Ave.), Poe Street (Franklin St. to La Belle Ave.), River Road (Habig St. to Tompkins St.) and Third Street (State St. to Miller St.).

The board also approved “orders to appear” for the owners of 1022 Lincoln St. and 305 Sunset St. This is the fourth time the Lincoln property has been labeled a nuisance, and the Sunset property has been an issue since 2018.
