The Taylorville Park Board met on Monday evening for their regular monthly meeting. The Board approved the Treasurer’s report and adopted the new ordinance for taxes for the new fiscal year. The board heard from maintenance superintendent Gary Brown, who announced that the main entrance to Manners Park will be closed this Friday, August 26th as work will be done on the road and will reopen Saturday morning. The park itself will not be closed and the side entrance on Webster will still be open for use.
Recreational Director Bailey Hancock gave her regular update and let the board know that they have been in the process of shutting down things like the pool and concession stand with summer coming to an end. The pool’s last day open for people to swim was on August 13th, but they also had a special Paws in the Pool day on August 14th where people could bring their dogs for a swim.
Hancock also said that the pool was able to raise 283 pounds of food for the Taylorville Food Pantry through their half price Wednesdays this summer.
The next Park Board meeting is set for September 26th.
