As the city of Taylorville waits for an answer from the federal Economic Development Administration, U.S. Congressman Rodney Davis says local leaders have put together a strong case to get the federal EDA grant for the proposed industrial park on the northwest side of Taylorville.
Davis attended an EDA meeting in Chicago with Taylorville mayor Bruce Barry and Taylorville Development Association President Ken Hart in the fall. He says the team that has put together the EDA grant application has done a great job selling Taylorville and Christian County.
Davis says projects like this are important for the future growth of the region.
Taylorville mayor Bruce Barry expects to hear back from the EDA on the industrial park application soon.
