SHELBY, OH- The Shelby City Council passed a resolution during the council's regular board meeting Monday night. The resolution changed the contract order with North Bay Construction Inc. for a wastewater treatment plant improvement project for $62,196.14.

The improvement project is an upgrade on the city's wastewater treatment plant located at 3626 London West Road. North Bay Construction Inc. is the main contractor on the project finishing renovations last month.

City of Shelby Mayor Steve Schag said that the project is expected to last for 25 years and is a safer solution after the upgrades. 

Schag said the project has been a big win for the city of Shelby. 

In other business, the council passed a resolution to partner with Great Lakes Community Action Partnership to upgrade and develop the city's Geographic Information System (GIS). 

Shelby City Project Coordinator Joe Gies explained to the board that the technology would be beneficial to the city moving forward. In the past, the city used an information system in connection with the county, which is no longer in use.

Gies said the choice to go with Great Lakes Community Action Partnership was an easy one after watching a demonstration of their product.

According National Geographic's website, a geographic information system is a computer system for capturing, storing, checking and displaying data related to positions on Earth's surface. GIS can show many different kinds of data on one map - such as streets, buildings, and vegetation.
