The Taylorville City Council met Monday evening, and a big topic of discussion that came up from earlier discussions involved fixing a tanker for the Taylorville Fire Department along with some much-needed building repairs. The tanker has an issue with the siren and has metal shavings under the pump. Taylorville Fire Chief Matt Adermann says these repairs have been needed for quite a while.
While Chief Adermann was concerned about getting the tanker fixed, he also expressed the need for the Taylorville Fire House as a whole getting the repairs it needed to be done as well.
The tanker needs repairs, not in excess of $5,035. The Fire Station building repairs will cost a little over $16,300 for the roof, and nearly $3,000 for the bricks. Both measures passed unanimously.
