Taylorville City Council To Meet

The Taylorville City Council will meet on Monday evening at 7 PM at the Municipal Building in Taylorville.  Some big topics of discussion include approving Deborah Kent to the Library Board, amending the section concerning liquor licenses, and the oath of office to Police Sergeant's Jeremy Alwerdt and Chase Dickey. Zach Braun will also be recognized as the Youth of the Month. 

 

Under committee reports, the board will look into a new UTG2 locator for the water/environmental department.  The board will look at some insurance coverage, salary increases, and a counter offer to American Tower for the lease for the tower at Lake Taylorville for the Finance committee. The board will also look at ordinance for residential solar permit applications and take a look at the employee salary ordinance with some changes to the maximum and minimum rules.  The board will discuss removing all max salary percentage amounts and to allow the minimum to remain with all future salary offers for new non-bargaining personnel to be based upon knowledge and experience above the minimum salary amount.

 

The board will pay bills, hear from the City Attorney and City Mayor, and hear from the public. Stay tuned to Regional Radio News for more on this story at the conclusion of the Monday night meeting.
