Taylorville City Council To Meet This Evening

Taylorville City Council is set to meet on Monday evening at the Municipal Building for their bimonthly meeting. After recognizing Jenny Moats as volunteer of the month, the board will review an ordinance on street design pavement standards, discuss approving the promotion of Captain Cody Rogers to Assistant Fire Chief, discuss and potentially approve purchasing rifles for the police department, discuss the Illinois Municipal League conference, and potentially approve the water department to hire Podeschi Tree Farms to plant 100 trees on the North property line of the water treatment plant. 


After the city attorney and mayoral updates, the board will hear from the various city committees.  The board will discuss approving the moving of the cemetery fuel tank, and including some vehicles in the city auction.  The board will discuss purchasing seven ballistic vests and purchase HyperReach for a one-year contract, and a laptop for the fire department. The board will also potentially approve bidding for a part-time dispatcher and a lead dispatcher for the police department.  


The board will pay bills, hear from anybody wishing to address the council, and go into a closed session to discuss the claims, demands, and settlement proposal of former City Human Resource Manager, Andrea Conrath.
