Shelby school officials have made the first step toward putting a bond issue on the fall ballot for a new Pre K through 8th grade building only. The School Board approved the first reading this week and will have to make its decision by August for the issue to appear on the November ballot. This comes after voters twice turned down the issue, which included a new football stadium by an average of 60% saying no. Superintendent Tim Tarvin says this will be their last chance to pass the bond issue with 50% help, coming from the State. RichlandSource.com reports, Tarvin says this is a $33 million project, but will only cost Shelby just over $10 million. The average Shelby homeowner will pay just $6.80 per month.
