Shelby Co. (ECWd) –

The Shelby County Board held its regular meeting last night which can be viewed below. Notable actions or inactions include the following:

  • Approved custom farming resolution for the county’s poor farm ground, which ironically was suggested as an option 2 years ago and ignored.
  • Approved a $30,000 contract for window repairs with RW Keys and Sons Inc, which does not appear to be registered with the Illinois Secretary of State under the name on their letterhead.
  • Approved a 2nd amendment preservation ordinance.
  • Listened to input from the AFSCME union President who is seeking equal application of ARPA funds as those being received by the FOP union.
  • Adopted a commuting policy for those driving county vehicles home.
  • Sat silent regarding the forensic audit findings presented at the last special board meeting.

    I read the custom farming resolution. Unless I am missing something. I think it says the farmer will only be paid $1.00 to farm the land, do the work and the county will get the full crop. The county would pay the full cost of seed and farm chemicals I am guessing. Why would a farmer work for only a Dollar? I must be missing something.
