 width=Taylorville aldermen conducted the city’s business in just 18 minutes in their first meeting of the month and of the year Tuesday night. The meeting was held one day later due to Monday being a legal holiday.

Taylorville mayor Greg Brotherton asked the various aldermanic committees to focus on goals for 2012, and added that the various entities involved in the Taylorville Industrial Park need a plan of action put together in the coming year. The mayor shared those thoughts with Regional Radio News after the meeting.

With the Taylorville Sanitary District holding the jurisdiction over the sewers in the city of Taylorville, and no sanitary sewer serving the new Industrial Park, Brotherton says the 2 entities need to work together to come up with a solution that will benefit everyone.
