The Taylorville Park Board met in regular session on Monday night at the Manners Park Board Room. The meeting was attended by several members of the community representing various organizations that had proposals for the Park Board, or had issues they wanted to discuss with the board. One speaker at this month’s Park Board meeting was Roy Williamson with Red Bland Little League. After wrapping up their season and district tournaments, Williamson wanted to extend his appreciation to the park board for allowing the use of Park Board facilities for little league play this year. One matter that Williamson brought up to the Park Board was the fact that the Taylorville branch of Red Bland Little League had been moved up a district to District 2 out of Champaign for Little League International. Williamson also informed the Park Board how the district president had expressed interest in having Red Bland Little League and Manners Park host district tournaments next season, but how Manners Park would need to make some Improvements to its baseball diamonds to do so.
One field in particular needs a bit more work than others.
After approving the Payment of Bills and Executive session, the Taylorville Park Board meeting adjourned at approximately 8PM.
