Today marks the 4-year anniversary of the December 1st, 2018 EF-3 tornado which ravaged our community.
A special thank you to Missions For Taylorville who undertook the monumental task of trying to rebuild our community. You have done an awesome job.
The City has received much needed financial support from the Illinois Emergency Management Agency in a check for $500,000. Thank you to Deputy Governor Manar and Governor Pritzker for this help.
As we move forward, I am optimistic with the revitalization of downtown. A special thank you to DowntownTaylorville.org and Small Town Taylorville. Taylorville will be looking better than ever before.
On December 1st, I ask that at 5:15 p.m. everyone in our community observe a moment of silence and a special thank you to our former Fire Chief Mike Crews for having our community prepared.
Together we remain Taylorville Strong!
Mayor Bruce Barry
