Taylorville Park District: Welcoming New Member, Approving Dog Park, and Preparing for Pool Opening

The Taylorville Park District swore in a new member, Roy O. Manasco, approved the establishment of a new dog park, and finalized the budget during their monthly meeting. Additionally, the board received the annual audit report.

During the meeting, Roy Manasco was officially sworn into office by Quinn Broverman.

Regarding the annual audit report, the board discussed the financial aspects related to the swimming pool and successfully maintaining the budget for the Fiscal Year, which concluded at the end of February. In their discussion, they mentioned the payment for a bench and siding for the maintenance shed.

The board unanimously voted to allocate funds for grant writing services to Design Perspectives, located in Naperville, IL.

The board revisited previous discussions about the dog park, which took place during the last meeting. They announced that a donor had been found to cover the entire cost of the dog park and had contacted several fence companies for the construction of the park's fencing.

The topic of memorial benches was also brought up. The current price of each bench is $375, but the expenses totaled approximately $480. The board deliberated increasing the price to $550, but Bailey Hancock expressed concern that it would barely cover the labor costs. However, the vote to raise the price passed unanimously.

During the meeting, Bailey Hancock mentioned the "Pennies for Pool" fundraiser.

In more exciting news, the pool is scheduled to open this Saturday, May 27th, at 1:00 pm.

The next park board meeting is set for June 2.
