Late last week Taylorville Mayor Bruce Barry and the Lake Committee got together to have a discussion about potentially privatizing the Lake, and they will continue to meet and discuss different ideas at their upcoming meetings.
Mayor Barry did clarify that the City of Taylorville will not be selling the Marina.
There is still a lot of uncertainty about what city finances will look like over the next few months, but the preliminary numbers are positive, according to Mayor Barry.
At the first August City Council meeting there was a lot of discussion about the Alderman being more involved in the hiring process. Mayor Barry said that it is his job to appoint the Superintendents and encouraged the Alderman to reach out to the nominees.
