The Taylorville City Council held their bi-monthly meeting on Monday June 4th and several topics were discussed.
Plans for the new Steak N’ Shake restaurant continue to be methodically move forward, as both the City and the prospective owners of the restaurant, set to be situated in the new TIFF district on Taylorville’s Northwest side, continue to gather more information. The new Steak N’ Shake is hoping for infrastructure repairs to be made in the area.
The Taylorville Sanitary District and the city have reached a new intergovernmental cooperation agreement, but only after major deliberations and negotiations between the two sides. The five year deal will run through 2023, and was the only measure on the night not to pass unanimously as alderman Martin Vota voted against the deal, noting his objection stemmed from the automatic renewal of the contract each year. Vota wanted the city the ability to look and decide on the renewal of the contract after each year.
In addition the city approved permits for the annual Chillifest and Taylorville High School homecoming parade in October.
The next City Council meeting will be on June 18th at 7 p.m at the Municipal Building in Taylorville.
