City Council Tables Decision on Assigning Police Officer as Full-Time School Resource Officer

The Taylorville City Council has voted to table the decision on assigning a police officer to be a full-time school resource officer. The council voted 4-2 Monday to put off the decision with Shawn Burtle and Martin Vota absent.


Taylorville mayor Bruce Barry says it has been hard to get all parties involved together in one place so everyone could be up to speed on the decision.



Barry says he’s ready to move forward with providing a school resource officer in the schools.



A special city council meeting may be scheduled for a vote on the school resource officer issue before the next regular meeting scheduled for May 21.


Also at Monday’s meeting, a decision on demolition and concrete work at the Taylorville Municipal Building was tabled, and the council approved an ordinance to reduce the water service connection fee for non-residents.
