It was a short 45-minute monthly meeting of the Taylorville Park Board Monday night at the Manners Park Office.

Most of the meeting considered a request by Taylorville Sanitary District board member Frankie Blanchfield, and Jeff Large, project manager with Crawford, Murphy and Tilly, the Sanitary District's consulting engineers, for an easement to install a replacement sanitary line that now goes thru Manners Park.  The new P-V-C line will replace a cast iron line installed under the park pond and pool parking lot in the 1970's, and be on a new easement that's being requested, that won't disturb any structures, ponds or parking lots in the park.

Large outlined to the Park Board, the Sanitary District's timeline.

Large added the old line will be filled with concrete once the new line is installed and working.

Park Board members tabled the easement request, so they could study the maps provided by Large, and also to arrange a meeting between Park Board attorney Quinn Broverman and Sanitary District attorney Dennis Atteberry to work out details.

The Taylorville Park Board Monday night heard about concerns regarding the Manners Park pool bottom, which will need repairs after the season is over; and they heard Recreation Director Bailey Hancock report that the pool's May attendance numbers from opening day thru May 31st, were almost 14-hundred, which was a new record.
