The City of Taylorville will be looking for a new City Treasurer. Scott Alberssen, who was elected to be the new city treasurer for the city has stepped down citing health concerns. In a letter to Regional Radio News, Alberssen said,
“I hereby choose not to fill the Taylorville City Treasurer vacancy from the consolidated election on April 6th, 2021. Health Circumstances have arisen whereby I believe that I will not be able to perform the functions of the city treasurer's office at the level the voters of Taylorville would expect or that I would expect of myself. I would like to thank the voters of Taylorville for their support and understanding.”
The Taylorville City Council is set to meet next on May 3rd to swear in the newly elected officials. There is no word yet on how Alberssen’s seat will be filled.
