Taylorville City Council Holds First March Meeting

Taylorville City Council met to review old business, ordinances, and committee reports.  All aldermen were present except for Randy Mitchelson and Steve Dorchinecz. After approval of minutes, the council approved the BDD agreement for the new Sonic, the agreement with 104 South Main Street, a four-way stop sign at W. Vine Street and North Powers Street (Megan Bryant voted no), the change date for the Street & Sewer Committee Meeting to Wednesday, March 27th due to a holiday, and a motion to purchase a Vermeer Drill.  


A situation has arisen over a $200,000 grant the city received, but it was reported during the meeting that everything was under control. Taylorville Mayor Bruce Barry says that surveying for the downtown area is going well.



Under committee reports, the council approved the purchase and installation of recessed can lights, a special events permit for Taylorville Main Street-Small Town Taylorville, a Grapple Bucket, Street and Water Main Improvements for the 200 block of East Poplar along with some other projects, and paving for the Taylorville Veteran’s Memorial parking lot. 


The next City Council meeting is set for March 18th.
