To the editor:
We write to you with a great deal of frustration about the recent front page article stating that the Shelby County Historical Society is out of compliance concerning our sewer system. For the city of Sidney to use outdated information and go as far as to file litigation against the Shelby County Historical Society is reprehensible. We have, in fact, been in compliance since Nov. 7, 2017. Our reputation as a civic leader has been seriously damaged through no fault of our own but rather because of the city’s inefficiency and reporting. As our community well knows the Shelby County Historical Society has devoted itself for the betterment of our community through our many children’s programs and civic events. We pride ourselves in being leaders with integrity. To have our names besmirched on the front page of our newspaper was inexcusable. We fully expect an apology from the city of Sidney as public as was the condemnation.
