Many of Christian County's village mayors met Wednesday morning at Taylorville City Hall to talk about issues among their communities. The mayors of Assumption, Mt. Auburn, Moweaqua, Owaneco, Palmer, Pana, Stonington, Taylorville, and Tovey were all in attendance at the meeting.
Many items were discussed at the informal meeting among mayors, including infrastructure issues. Multiple communities currently have projects to upgrade their water systems, but the consensus among the towns, as Assumption mayor John Kehl and Mt. Auburn mayor Brent Milburn put it, is that the area's infrastructure is old.
Other issues discussed include building demolition, getting grant money for project, water billing, garbage pickups, and video gaming. Pana mayor Don Kroski says the meeting was very productive.
The Christian County mayors are looking at having their next meeting in Pana in February.
