The Taylorville Police Department has experienced an issue this past week, where one of the officers, Anthony Telford, has been arrested for domestic battery, while in Chicago. Mayor Greg Bortherton, there isn't much he can say about the case, but everyone is innocent until proven guilty, and he hopes the situation can blow over quickly for Telford.
Brotherton mentioned some of the positives coming to Taylorville, and felt it was important to focus on the positives, especially with a lot of the negative energy being pushed out from the state government.
Brotherton also mentioned St. Mary's School expansion, as well as sewer and road repairs happening throughout the summer as positive things to focus on. Brotherton was recently a guest on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
