Taylorville Mayor: We Need a New Pool

The April Consolidated Election in Taylorville asks property owners a big question: Should taxes raises on property within the Taylorville Park District in order to fund the construction of a new pool? 


Taylorville Mayor Bruce Barry says that having a pool in town is a huge deal. 

Mayor Barry says that, from what he understands, if the referendum does not pass, then it’s possible Taylorville does not have a pool anymore. 

At their city council meeting Monday Night, the Park District asked for support from the city. 


Mayor Barry acknowledges that nobody wants to pay higher taxes, but the park district is running out of options. 

Mayor Barry appeared as a guest on the WTIM Morning Show.
