The mayor’s cleanup committee is in the final stages of putting together a new monthly award that will honor a resident going above and beyond in the ongoing process of cleaning up Taylorville. The mayor announced the new award at Monday night’s city council meeting.
Taylorville mayor Bruce Barry says the committee wants to have a way to recognize those people that are going the extra mile for cleaning up the city.
Barry says cleaning up Taylorville was a top priority for him coming into office. He hopes seeing people clean up the city encourages their neighbors to do the same.
The cleanup committee has a few final details to work out before making the new award official. Barry would like to honor the award’s first recepient at the next city council meeting on August 21st.
