The Taylorville City Council met in regular session Monday night. The meeting took place in the Stonington Elementary cafeteria as opposed to the usual setting of the Taylorville School District Administration Building. The reason for the change in venue was due to the school board getting a tour of the facilities in Stonington.
The meeting was also more notably upbeat considering the news of the passing of the stopgap budget that will fully fund Illinois Schools for the year. Taylorville Superintendent Dr. Greggory Fuerstenau commended the local Citizens For Education group for their continued presence both in Springfield and at other school funding reform rallies across the state. With the stopgap budget in place, Taylorville Schools can now look at putting together its FY17 budget.
It was also mentioned during the treasurer’s report that the Taylorville School District is expecting their first local installment in August.
It was also mentioned during the meeting that online registration for Taylorville Schools will begin soon. Regional Radio News will have more details when they become available.
