The Taylorville Park Board approved the amended 2018-19 operating budget at Monday night’s board meeting. The vote was 4-2 in favor of passing the budget with Bob Steiner and Misty Marucco (Morocco) voting against. The board had voted to pass the original budget at February’s meeting.
Board member Sue Phillips says in the original budget, they had forgotten to account for Social Security and IMRF funds in the budget.
Steiner, who has said he objects to the levying of the museum tax in the past, told the board although he approved the changes made, he still would vote no on this proposed budget.
The next park board meeting is scheduled for April 23 at 7 p.m. at the Manners Park board room.
