The Taylorville City Council handled a host of issues in their hour-and-20-minute meeting Monday night at City Hall.


Mayor Bruce Barry, in his mayoral report, asked all aldermen to provide him a list of areas in each of their wards that need attention so he can compile a city-wide list of projects to be done.



Among items approved by the Taylorville Council Monday night, were some 136-thousand dollars for milling and asphalt work on East Main Cross from Paw to Paw to Cherokee Street; and some 33-thousand dollars worth of work on curb, sidewalk and pavement for the intersection of Pleasant and Walnut Streets.


The Taylorville Council approved payment to Janet DeClerk, owner of Bella Amore on the west side of the square, nearly 12-hundred dollars from the Sam Taylor Fund for work on her building.  


They voted to spend nearly 14-thousand dollars to replace the aging air conditioning system for the Council chambers and the Mayor's office. 


And, at the end of the meeting, Council members heard concerns about parking on West Poplar Street from Pat Kretzer who purchased a house at 401 West Poplar.  After considerable discussion, Kretzer's concerns were referred to the Council's ordinance committee for a recommendation to be made to the full Council.
