The Taylorville City Council met on Monday evening and said goodbye to some outgoing Aldermen, all while welcoming new Aldermen. Doug Brown, Jeremy Wilson, and Steve Dorchinecz were sworn in as new Aldermen replacing outgoing Aldermen Lee Lanzotti, Ernie Dorchinecz, and Shawn Burtle. Alderman Larry Budd was also reelected.


Doug Brown says that he is excited to be on the board and is looking forward to helping his constituents.



Jeremy Wilson says that as far as goals go he is looking forward to continuing work on improving the streets.



Steve Dorchinecz says that he’s ready to give back to the community. 



Mayor Bruce Barry says that he still doesn’t have a replacement for City Treasurer yet, as elected treasurer Scott Alberssen had to step down due to health concerns. Mayor Barry says that he would like to set up a time each week to meet with all Aldermen to discuss concerns of the city.



The board approved an ordinance amending section 3-3-5 of the Taylorville City Code concerning liquor license fees for pour establishments. That motion passed 6-3. After some discussion, a motion concerning reimbursement for Ward 1 for $45,000 from the Drainage District was also passed 5-4 with the Mayor being the tiebreaker.
