Shelby School Bond Issue on May Ballot

Voters in Shelby will see a school bond issue on the upcoming May ballot. Shelby Superintendent Tim Tarvin says the 4.6 mill bond issue is for 34 years and would build a new Pre K through 8th grade building and football stadium to be constructed near the current track.  Skiles Field, Shelby's football stadium, is slow falling apart and needs replaced. Voters turned it down this past fall, with 58% saying no. Tarvin says some changes have been made to this plan, which will include 400 more parking spaces. The cost to a home owner ($100,000) would be $160 per year. The total cost of the project is $41.4 million, but will cost taxpayers only $18.8 million, which is 45% of the cost.
