Water break in Arbor Hills at Fen Lockney and Briarwood!!
The water is fixed and back on so please flush the air from your line by running water out of your outside faucets. 
The break created a sink hole on Briarwood 4 feet deep so the road is CLOSED until further notice.  Please take Fen Lockney around to your home until the road can be repaired. Thank you for your patience.  Friday 1/19

Right of Way tree trimming:  Please note the Road Crew will be starting in the Valley and making their way around the entire town clearing brush and trees from the Right of Way.  This allows for traffic, school busses, and Emergency Vehicles to pass through our roads.  At times, an entire tree will need to be removed.  

Recycling Brochure Calendar - the calendar has updates, please see FORMS for a new schedule.  The months with Holiday's on Mondays will have our pick up on Wed and Thurs, not as regularly scheduled Tues and Wed. 

Boundary Meetings continue for January with the City and Town, dates to come.

  • There is a serious problem with dog feces being left in the parks!  It should be picked and taken home, not left in refuse containers at the parks or thrown in the bathrooms.  If the problem continues, dogs will be banned from all Town of Shelby parks.  Those who use the parks for other activities and park maintenance staff should not have to deal with your dog feces.  We are also having reports of dogs running loose in Pammel Creek Park and Mormon Coulee Park.  Dogs must be on a lease at all times outside of your yard.

  • DUMPSTERS: Town does not allow dumpster or other obstructions to be placed on Town right-of-way.  Permits are available for special circumstances. (posted 4/13)
  • Town right-of-way extends 10-15 feet beyond the edge of the road.  This area is used for snow storage when snow is pushed back away from the road and sometimes the plows tear up the sod and dirt.  Generally the property owner will be responsible for repair. (posted 1/14/2014)
  • A permit is required for Drive Way restructuring, resurfacing. There is no fee for this permit. We just want to make sure culverts are in good condition and the water flow is moving the way it needs to move. (posted 4/7/2015)

Sanitary District Customers

Many of you received a bill from the Sanitary District and observed, "NSF" placed in the comment section toward the bottom left hand side of the bill.  After an investigation by our software provider, our printing company and staff at the Town of Shelby to clarify why that was printed on the "Statement" , it was determined a glitch in the software.

The printing of NSF on the statement will not affect your credit rating nor will this information be accidently forwarded to a credit bureau.  We sincerely regret this happened.

What is happening to correct this software glitch? The IT manager at Adoni our software manager has implemented additional precautionary step which will reread bill prior to the printing.

Thank you for your patients in allowing us to further investigate why this occurred.
