Sheridan Pulley with Pulley, Martynowski & Blakeman, discussed the results of the Taylorville Park Districts Audit.  He stated that the audit went well and all was in order.  The biggest expense for 2020 was the work done on the North Pond.

 

REPORTS

Maintenance Superintendent – Superintendent Gary Brown reported they have been mowing and working on the pool for opening day.  He reported that on May 24, 2021 the pool had a leak and was losing up to 500 gallons of water per hour.  He stated that he will be working on problem solving the leak and hopefully have the pool up and ready for May 29, 2021 opening day.

 

Office Administrator/Secretary – Office Administrator, Lisa Morillo informed the Board that she, President Marlane Miller, and Recreation Director Bailey Hancock had conducted an interview with the Breeze-Courier in regards to sponsorship from the community for free pool passes.  She informed the Board that the Park District had received a phone call from Battery Specialist and they were donating to the program.  Also, Sheridan Pulley and the K.C. Hall have made donations as well. 

 

Recreation Director – Director Bailey Hancock reported that Loving Arms had their Annual Benefit Walk and all went well.  Also, Day Camp is ready and would start up on June 1, 2021.  She informed the Board she has 12 lifeguards and would like to extend the offer for lifeguards out of the Taylorville area and search within Christian County.  She asked that when hired they could be grandfathered in and would always have an option to work at the pool as return lifeguards.  On May 19, 2021 she attended the meeting about the Skateboard Park and asked if the Park District could donate two picnic tables for the potential location.  She brought it to the Board’s attention as to how she uses her personal cell phone for many business calls/texts and requested to have a cell phone allowance of $40.00 per month.  Director Hancock uses her existing Amazon account and has added the Park District to this account.  There is an annual fee charged in the amount of $120.00 per year.  She asked that the Park District could pay half of the fee being that she orders many products from Amazon for the district. She also reported that Burbach had come down and done the evaluation on the pool and the Park District should have the information from the evaluation within a couple of months.
