The board approved all the new business development district agreements except for one between Taylorville and SM Capital which was tabled. The board announced that they are pushing for a grant concerning the downtown area called the Rebuild Downtowns & Main Streets Capital Grant Program. Aldermen Kathy Driskell says this is extremely important to the city of Taylorville.



The board discussed the embezzlement claim involving Robbin Sheets. Rocci Romano, City Attorney explained the latest.



It seems the board didn’t really wasn’t satisfied with what the final charges were going to be but understood that given the circumstances, they wouldn’t be able to get more. 


Taylorville Mayor Bruce Barry gave an update congratulating the 7th-grade girls, new police officers, and wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas.
