The southeast side sewer project looks like it will affect the park, and one of the contractors working on the project spoke at Monday’s Taylorville Park Board meeting. Jeff Large with Crawford, Murphy, and Tilly spoke to the board about the planned sewer re-route project coming up.
MaryAnn Becker is the Officer Administrator of the Taylorville Park District. She says the main pipe runs underneath Manners Park, but the pipe would be re-routed with this project.
Also at the meeting, Becker says the board reviewed multiple other park programs, including Christmas at the Park.
Over 900 more cars visited Christmas at the Park in 2017, with donations increasing by more than $2,500 compared to 2016.
The next park board meeting is scheduled for Monday, February 26 at 7 p.m. at the Manners Park Board Room.
