The Taylorville City Council has approved creating a new position to oversee water billing in the community. With the recent billing issues in the community and the changes coming in the near future, Taylorville mayor Bruce Barry says now is the time to have one person solely in charge of water billing.
Barry says the city wants to provide better customer service with one person handling only water billing.
Barry says the decision at last night’s meeting was to complete the job description and to start advertising the open position.
Also at Monday night’s meeting, the board voted five to three to hire an additional police officer to send to training in May. They also voted to raise liquor license fees on certain establishments in the city.
The next city council meeting is scheduled for March 19 at 7 p.m. at the Taylorville Municipal Building.
