The Taylorville City Council met on Monday evening to discuss business, review ordinances, and hear from the public at their bimonthly board meeting. The Taylorville Junior High Baseball was honored for being Regional Champions. The team went 13-3. The meeting itself was very cut and dry with a minimal discussion on a motion to recommend to the City Attorney to prepare an ordinance to limit the number of video gaming liquor licenses to the current number of 40, with additional video gaming liquor licenses to be added only upon council approval.
Alderman Chris Skultety broke down the list into the classes.
Alderman Doug Brown wanted to know why this was needed as all gaming licenses are already voted on by the Council.
Taylorville Mayor Bruce Barry says he is adamantly opposed to all limits.
The motion passed 5-3 with Aldermen Jim Olive, Randy Mitchelson, and Megan Bryant voting No. The council passed Trick or Treat Hours for 5-8 On October 30th and 31st. The council also approved BDD agreements and cemetery equipment shed roof painting. Fall Clean-Up Day has been set for November 4th. The Mayor gave his council update.
During public comments, the council heard from some city workers who brought up some issues taking place that needed to be addressed at the personnel meeting taking place later this week. They asked all aldermen to attend to learn more about the incident. The next city council meeting is set for October 16th.
