Progress continues on the new water plant for Taylorville. The plant is a key piece in expanding the city's capacity and ability to bring new businesses to town, and Taylorville Mayor Bruce Barry is confident the city will be able to get deals done with the prospective companies to bring jobs to Taylorville.
There has been some questions however as to the need for a new water plant in town. Barry says a number of factors led to the new plant.
The new plant would allow the city to have a higher capacity with it's water system, which would allow more businesses to come online in Taylorville. Barry is confident that with the new TIF districts, those businesses will be coming.
