The Taylorville City Council had a lot to handle last night from a couple of sewer projects, to a new storm line going in at Central Avenue, and yes the TIF District as well.
The Aldermen voted on a motion to adopt the Ordinance approving the authorization of a Tax Increment Financial District Redevelopment Agreement between the City of Taylorville and Stuller Inc. The motion passed by a final vote of 7-2 with Aldermen Martin Vota and Ernie Dorchinecz voting no.
Mayor Bruce Barry says with this motion passing he can now say with 100% certainty that Steak N’ Shake is officially coming to Taylorville.
Alderman Larry Budd was adamant that this motion needed to pass. He says the fact that it did is not surprising as it is a win win for the city of Taylorville.
Not all are so sure that this is what is best for the city of Taylorville, Alderman Martin Vota voted no and explains why.
The Taylorville City Council meets on the first and third Monday of every month on the second floor of the Municipal Building, the session is called to order at 7pm.
