The city of Pana has received a grant from the state to go towards repairs to the trestle bridge on the bike path between Pana and Taylorville. Pana needs to come up with some local funds to help supplement the grant. Taylorville Mayor Greg Brotherton said how Taylorville has agreed to split the costs with Pana for the repairs.
Mayor Brotherton explained exactly what the grant will allow the cities of Pana and Taylorville to do.
Mayor Brotherton said although there are several pressing matters that Taylorville is working on, the repairs to the bike trail will help the city become more attractive to potential residence and businesses.
There currently isn’t a timetable for when the repairs will be made to the bike trail trestle bridge, but Mayor Brotherton is hopeful the work will be done by summer.
