Taylorville Park Board Meets For Re-Scheduled Meeting

The Taylorville Park Board of Trustees met Monday night for a brief meeting at 7:00 p.m. All members of the board were present. The treasurer’s report was approved and minutes were passed for the January 2nd meeting.


Representatives from Red Bland Little League inquired about different locations for games during the upcoming Little League season. Possibilities included playing certain games at Jaynes Park or Don Bragg Park, but Manners Park is the only location with fields that can hold 90-foot bases for the older age groups. Plans for games are still to be announced.


Under New Business, February 13th at 1:30 p.m. was set for the budget planning meeting. And a heater for the maintenance shed was approved. 


The Jaynes Park dog incident was then discussed. Marlane Miller, Park Board President described the incident between two dogs in which the larger of the two dogs that was unleashed charged a woman holding a smaller dog, knocking the woman down and resulting in multiple injuries including broken ribs.



The hope was to add more signage and patrolling of maintenance crews to enforce the leashing of dogs and to eventually change the ordinance to make penalties more effective. A motion was approved to obtain additional signage.


Under reports, Bailey Hancock gave her Recreation Director report, detailing the clean-up and operations of Christmas in the Park and summer day camp information.


The meeting concluded with an executive session and the next Taylorville Park Board meeting is set for Monday, February 26th.
