For the next two Saturdays, Taylorville will be having its fall cleanup days, and mayor Bruce Barry is encouraging residents to do their part in cleaning up the community.
Barry says the city will offer free dumpsters and even free pickup of trash if residents cannot bring their trash to those dumpsters.
One of the platforms Barry ran for mayor on was cleaning up Taylorville. He says the city has started tearing down blighted buildings across the community.
Barry says any buildings that can’t be torn down this fall will be added to the list of properties to work on when the weather warms up again next spring.
