Mayor Steven Schag updated councilmen on duties he had performed over the recent weeks, including participating in an interview process with Shelby Police Chief Lance Combs for the position of a patrolman with the department.

Last week, Schag reported the city of Shelby received a certificate from the National Society of Sons of the American Revolution.

Moving forward in his report, Schag entertained a motion to confirm the appointment of Mary Durkin to the Shelby Historic Preservation Commission.

The motion was approved.

Director of Finance Brian Crum went over his report and explained the income tax department was extremely busy on October 15, as it was the last day for extended tax returns.

In new business, the Shelby Historic Preservation Commission made a recommendation to city council for The Shelby Pure Milk Company Barn on Whitney Avenue to be designated as locally historic landmark. Schag explained the motion passed.

Schag shared city council would have the opportunity to recommend or not recommend this property to the locally designated historic landmark documentation.

Councilman Derrin Roberts made the motion that city council designate The Shelby Pure Milk Company Barn on Whitney Avenue as a locally designated historic landmark.

After discussion, Roub made the motion to postpone action on the motion until the next regular scheduled meeting on Monday, November 1. The motion passed through council.
