TAYLORVILLE KIWANIS HEAR ABOUT ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT FROM BOARD CHAIR
The Taylorville Kiwanis Club heard about on-going economic development efforts in Christian County, during their Tuesday luncheon at the Taylorville Memorial Hospital auditorium.
Gary Spurling, chairman of the Christian County Economic Development Corporation board, was the program speaker, talking about work the board is doing to attract new business and industry to the county, as well as retaining existing businesses.
Spurling told the Kiwanis Club that with the establishment of Computer Technique's Fiber Optic Network in Taylorville, the recent passage of the Taylorville school referendum, the new Taylorville Water Plant about to break ground, and the establishment of a new TIF district for Taylorville, all of these factors are helping to attract new industry and keep current businesses in the county.
The Taylorville Kiwanis Club is part of global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time. Weekly meetings are held Tuesdays at noon at the Taylorville Memorial Hospital auditorium. For information on the club, go to taylorvillekiwanis.com.
