The Taylorville City Council have approved the mayor’s recommendation to appoint Brian Hile as Chief of Police for the city of Taylorville. Hile said that he had spoken with several of the aldermen before the meeting so they could better judge whether or not they felt he was a good fit. Hile said many of those conversations revolved around things the Taylorville Police Department can continue to do and improve in the future.
Taylorville Mayor Greg Brotherton shared why he recommended Hile for the position.
The Council also voted on a trio of motions on Monday night regarding several properties around the city. The properties are all heavily damaged, and a cause of blight for Taylorville. Mayor Brotherton said the ordinances are part of a movement from the city council to get problem properties torn down.
Mayor Brotherton explained that the ordinances will mean that the city will reimburse the property owners the initial costs of tearing the properties down.
After approving the payment of bills, Monday nights meeting of the Taylorville City Council adjourned at 7:48 pm.
