Taylorville City Council met on Monday evening for their regular board meeting that saw many of the Alderman attending virtually. There were no committee reports in this session, but some ordinances were discussed. An ordinance discussing the liability of the property owner for building sewer repairs was tabled. UTV regulations were updated including changing operating times.
Other ordinances that were discussed included a lottery system for leases for lake lots, campsites, and boat docks. Stay tuned to Regional Radio News for more on this lottery system and how this is going to change in the future. Another ordinance that was updated is the part of the city code that allows liquor license holders to deliver online liquor sales to its customers outside its business building premises. So if a company has takeout, you can call in to order liquor and have them bring it outside to you.
Taylorville Mayor Bruce Barry gave an update. He thanked everyone for their well wishes during his recent COVID-19 diagnosis. Mayor Barry also announced that due to some other positive COVID-19 cases, City Hall would be closed until further notice unless you had an appointment. The Mayor also thanked many of the area churches for their hard work on various trunk or treats throughout the area.
