Mayor’s Message

Our meeting was held on January 5, 2012 at 6:00 P.M. I called the meeting to order and Alderman Ray
Lancaster gave the invocation. The minutes were approved from last month’s meeting.  The claims
docket and the misc. claims docket were approved.

Our grills for the pavilion have been delivered but we are still in need of one more donation. The
Taylorsville Rotary Club purchased a grill this past Thursday.  Anyone wishing to use the grills must
contact the Town Hall.  A new “Stop” sign will be installed on Central Street and Forrest Street. You need to
be aware of the additional sign and remember to come to a complete stop.  The remaining street signs
will be installed this month, also.

Mayor of Taylorsville

From Mayor Rosalyn Glenn

December was a very busy month with parties and programs to attend, shopping for that special gift, and spending time with family and friends. It was also a time of reflection. What have we accomplished and what do we need to do in the future.

retireTwo town employees from the water department are retiring this year.  Mr. Douglas Keyes after 30 years and Mr. David Barnett after eleven years.

We received an Energy Grant that helped the police department, library and the educational building with lights, insulation, and thermostats.

An emergency grant was requested for $95,000 to replace a manhole and sewer lines on Nix Drive.

A historical marker was placed at the Watkins Museum which was purchased through a grant. We are extending the completion date until March 2012.

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
