There has a been a push from the community lately to clean up Taylorville and make it a more visually appealing place to live. Several community organizations have made it a priority to help with some of the visually unappealing properties in the city, including Missions for Taylorville, which has recently partnered with the Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce.
Patty Hornbuckle, CEO of the Taylorville Chamber says she'd like to see the whole community come together, and be proud of their town again.
Although Missions for Taylorville appreciates skilled labor helping out with the various projects they take on each year, the main thing they need is simply more volunteers.
Hornbuckle appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
