Taylorville Fire Department Receives BDD Funds For Improvements

The Taylorville Fire Department purchased a new Freight-Liner Tanker Fire Truck to add to their fleet of vehicles and was approved at a city council meeting to receive $107,000 from the Business Development District for needed repairs to their facility.

Taylorville Mayor Bruce Barry wants the community to understand the importance of the 1% sales tax placed on Taylorville retailers and hotels, the funds gathered are used to help in any project that benefits the district. New equipment and building upkeep for the Taylorville Fire Department make for efficient and reliable first responders.


Taylorville will soon see the $5-million redevelopment in the downtown area as BDD funds look to create the infrastructure suitable for more businesses and living arrangements on the second floors.


For more information on Taylorville developments or BDD contact 217-824-2101.

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