  Original Published: 6/18/2013The Shelby Wastewater Treatment Plant is getting a new roof structure for the digester. Shelby City Council approved entering into a contract for the purchase of the equipment at their meeting Monday. Mayor Marilyn John said the equipment is needed for the plant. "Back in mid-May we had an emergency situation with our wastewater treatment facility with the digester which is part of the treatment process. The cap on the digester collapsed unexpectedly," John said. "We've been waiting on a quote from the manufacturer to replace the 60 year old piece of equipment. We finally received the it and council has given the approval to order the equipment. It will take about 16 to 20 weeks  to get the piece here and installed," John said. In other business, council approved placing a .2% percent income tax levy for maintaining the roadway and sidewalk repairs on the November ballot.Mayor John said the Ohio Department of Transportation will pave state routes in the city if the city can come up with its share of the cost for the road improvements. John said the city's share is 20-percent. She said passage of the levy is very important. John said a campaign is being put together to educate the community about the levy.
