The Taylorville City Council will meet this evening to discuss business, review ordinances, and hear from their public for their first bi-monthly meeting in July. One thing that the board will be discussing is reviewing the drive-thru windows for alcohol sales. The motion was brought up at the last meeting but died on the table with no support. There will also be some other ordinances and resolutions reviewed.
Under street and sewer, the board will discuss an engineering study for the Wal-Mart Lift Station pump upgrade. Under personnel, the board will accept, deny, or table the following: the resignation of assistant fire chief Cody Rogers, allow non-bargaining employees to live within 6.5 miles of the courthouse, advertise a full-time dispatcher to the police department, hire two police officers, raise the salary of the street and sewer superintendent by 5%, advertise three laborers in the street department, and amend the employee handbook.
Under emergency services, the board will look into allowing Chief Matt Adermann into purchasing a new fire hose, allow Chief Wheeler to upgrade two administration vehicles, and purchase two new vehicles and stop equipment.
The meeting will also have Mayoral and city attorney updates. Stay tuned to Regional Radio News for more on this story after the conclusion of the meeting at the Municipal building Tuesday evening.
