As TIF district number one in Taylorville approaches completion, city leaders are inviting residents to an upcoming open forum on the districts. The hearing on the Tax-Increment Financing district will be Monday at 5:30 in the council chambers at the Taylorville Municipal Building.
Taylorville mayor Bruce Barry says the forum is a way for residents to come learn about this new economic engine for the community.
Barry says there is a period of time the city has to wait to officially approve the district, but barring any setbacks, it could be up and running soon.
Barry says there are businesses reaching out to the city about locating in the TIF district once it is established.
