The Taylorville Park Board met on Monday evening and the focus was on when the park could open up and a look at what the park was doing for their summer activities due to COVID-19. Right now the focus is on a July 1st date, but obviously that could change based off of what plans Governor JB Pritzker has and the recovery phase for when the region moves up to Phase 3.
Recreational Director Bailey Hancock says that there are still quite a lot of gray areas when it comes to what’s taking place this summer but she hopes that things will be open by July 1st. Any later than that and the season would have to be scrapped.
Park Board President Marlane Miller says that the playground has to stay closed per the Governor’s orders.
The board also decided to push off the vote on that for June 1st when they would hold their next meeting and decide what would be happening over the Summer. This way they could know whether or not Illinois would be moving to the next phase.
The meeting was broadcast live on NEW COUNTRY 104.1. You can see the whole meeting on WTIM TV on Youtube.
