February 26, 2024-Council Moves Forward on Adding Air Traffic Control Tower to Airport
by Joshua Blevins
Shelbyville Now - Local NEWS (18)

Today in a Mayor & City Council Special Called Meeting, the four council members present (Turnbow, Christie, Feldhaus and Ewing) voted unanimously to approve a grant request to help fund Airport Layout Plan Forecast Revisions & a Federal Contract Tower Application.

If the grant is approved, the total cost will be $131,800, of which the city-paid portion would be 5% ($6,590). This is the next step in the process to bring a Federal Contract Air Traffic Control Tower to the Shelbyville airport. Eventually the hope is to have a tower manned by the Tennessee National Guard's 1-107th Air Operations Battalion with all manpower paid for with FAA money. Paul Perry, Director of the Shelbyville Municipal Airport, did mention that the airport would have day to day expenses connected with the tower such as utilities. He also explained that the entire process of getting an air traffic control tower is a long one, taking at least five years.

Story by Joshua Blevins - Drone Footage by Bo Gill

Update-
Update on Partial Building Collapse at the corner of E Depot St and S Brittain St.

Demolition crews worked through the night to take down the building at E Depot Street and S Brittain St. E Depot Street has now reopened but S. Brittain remains closed.


A call came into 911 a little after noon today from Templeton & Associates Insurance that the rear of the building next to them had collapsed. The building is owned by Glass Hollow Properties who purchased it in late 2021. Shelbyville Police were first on the scene and immediately called in the Shelbyville Fire Department to assess the situation. A decision was soon made to close East Depot Street at South Brittain Street. City police and fire are currently on scene and waiting for a demo team to take down more of the building.
