Health Insurance, TIF Districts Discussed at Taylorville City Council Meeting


Health insurance, the possible TIF districts, and a water treatment plant contract re-work were among the items discussed at the action-packed Taylorville City Council Meeting Monday night.



One of the first items of business was the swearing in of new Taylorville Fire Captain Cody Rogers. Many family and friends came to watch his swearing in as the Fire Department’s newest Captain.


A personnel committee meeting was held before the city council meeting, where the main discussion of the new health insurance policy took place. The council voted unanimously for the plan. Mayor Bruce Barry explains what the changes are.



Another item discussed was re-working the water treatment plant construction contract because of the state budget crisis and most of that money coming from the state. Barry says the city wants to get the contractor involved for the protection of both the city and the contractor.



The possible TIF districts were brought up again at Monday’s meeting, show that there is still disagreement on whether or not the TIF should happen. But the action taken at the meeting was more of a formality for the developer, according to Barry.



The council will meet again on June 19th in the city council chambers in the Taylorville Municipal Building.
