Shelby Co. appeals for traffic relief

COLUMBIANA (AP) — Shelby County has a big traffic headache and hopes legislators will allow a vote to cure it.

The County Commission has appealed to the county’s nine-member legislative delegation for help in solving the traffic congestion by supporting a referendum that would allow residents to vote on a future road improvement plan.

The Greater Shelby County Chamber of Commerce holds a Feb. 20 “transportation summit” at The American Village. The legislative session starts March 6.

A referendum would decide whether the County Commission can have limited powers to enact a traffic congestion relief package, likely funded by taxes, fees or some combination.
