The Taylorville Park District held their monthly meeting last week at the Administration building at Manners Park. One of the issues that was discussed was brought up by Secretary Mary Ann Becker, who had attended a conference for various park districts to discuss different issues the park districts faced. One issue was an Illinois law regarding bathroom accommodations for people who identify as transgender. The Park District must accommodate those people by law. Becker brought up how the pool facilities at Manners Park were rather out of date, and said how at the conference, she was given an example of what the park district could do to follow the law.
Becker said how the best bet that the Park District could have is to put in a non denomination, single stall bathroom at the pool.
One issue with this however would be the cost. Becker said how this was brought up at the conference, and the Park Board made suggestions as to how they could put in a single stall restroom at the pool.
