Taylorville City Council Approves UTV's & Mural

The Taylorville City Council met on Tuesday evening. On the table was voting for UTV’s (utility terrain vehicles) along with voting for a mural to be painted on the Advanced Title building located at 101 South Washington 18’x80’ with a cost not to exceed $18,000 from the Business Development District Fund. Those funds are allotted and only allowed to be used for specific things, this being one of them. After discussion, the motion for UTV’s passed with Alderman Larry Budd and Alderman Lee Lanzotti voting no on it.  The motion for allowing Ms. Maggie Tarr to complete the mural also passed unanimously. 


The council voted on the wording for the lake lots and campground sites lease fee increases. This motion had already been approved but the wording hadn’t been changed yet in the ordinance. This went ahead and changed it. A motion was approved to purchase the M4000 card reader system to replace the old system for the Airport. 


The city also approved purchasing 10 new 11” 64 gigabyte iPad Pro’s with pens and insurance for the Aldermen, Mayor, City Clerk, and City Treasurer at a cost not to exceed $12,000.  The reason the city needs them is because of the Freedom of Information Act, this will prevent them from keeping documents on their personal phones and tablets. 


The next city council meeting will take place on February 6th.
