The City of Taylorville has many projects on the way including new sanitation lines, a new industrial park, and the construction of a new water plant. Mayor Greg Brotherton said the industrial park is one thing that's exciting for the city because it will bring new business to Taylorville, along with new jobs, and possibly new residents. He also said there are positive signs of a new hotel being built on Route 29 near where the new industrial park will be, which could make more room for visitors to the area.
Mayor Brotherton is also focused on the new city water plant. Brotherton said after a lot of thought and discussion it made the most sense to build a new water plant with the best technology possible, even if it will end up doubling the water rate.
