One thing on the mind of most Taylorville citizens is the upcoming tax referendum for Taylorville Schools. The school district has come up with this referendum because the state isn't taking care of them the way they need. Patty Hornbuckle, CEO of the Taylorville Chamber is part of Citizens of Education and said it's important for the citizens to vote in the tax levy because it won't just affect the students, but the entire city.
Hornbuckle said if the referendum isn't voted in, it will more than likely cause incoming businesses to pull out which will in turn bring less visitors, bring less new residents, and bring down property values.
Hornbuckle appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
