On Monday night, October 22nd, the Taylorville Community Pleasure Driveway and Park District Board of Trustees held their monthly meeting at Manners Park in the office board room. The meeting began with the approval of the September 24th, 2018 minutes which were approved by the board. Following that was the treasurer's report which announced that the Park District’s beginning balance as of August 31st was $806,226.44, and the balance as of September 30th was $912,499.21. Then, there was a presentation of Manners Park Playground Bids. There were 5 bids in total, and many of the submissions provided multiple options. After Bailey Hancock displayed all of the different options, the board scheduled a special meeting for October 30th where they will make a decision on what playground to bring to Manners Park. Hancock was thrilled with the playground bids the district received.

 

 

Infact, Hancock says that the bids for a new playground were so good that it is going to be difficult to make a decision.

 

 

The new playground is planning to be in place by 2019. Next, the board reviewed the Taylorville Sewer Department Easement Contract, and made some corrections before they approved it unanimously. The maintenance report followed, and a new roof on the concession stand was finished since the last meeting. Following that, was the finance committee report, and then the meeting was adjourned.

 

The Taylorville Parks District meets on the fourth Monday of every month.
