The City of Taylorville, Christian County, Assumption, and Pana will be working mutually together for the benefit of Christian County as a whole. The plan is to expand existing business and bring new businesses into the region. The way this will be done will be a Christian County Enterprise Zone. Mayor Bruce Barry, the Mayor of Taylorville, talks about just how important this Enterprise Zone will be for the County.
Businesses within the enterprise zone will be eligible to receive state tax credits and tax exemptions. The application will be due at the end of the year with awards coming in September of 2020 and an end goal of January 1, 2021 for a 15 year term. Mayor Barry says that the comradery is what will make this a success.
There will be a business breakfast on Thursday June 20th from 8AM – 9:30 AM at Peoples Bank And Trust in the lower level community room at 1221 W. Springfield Road in Taylorville. Networking begins at 8 with a presentation, question and answer session, and concluding by 9:30.
