After a one hour and 15-minute executive session before the regular City Council meeting Monday night, Taylorville aldermen unanimously voted to accept the preliminary plans submitted by Christian County Integrated Community Services, to build a new subsidized housing subdivision, to be called Hathaway Homes, behind the Taylorville V-F-W on the city’s south side.
Taylorville mayor Greg Brotherton told Regional Radio News that the City Council met with representatives from the city’s insurance carrier, and an attorney representing that carrier, and those discussions in closed session led to the open session vote accepting the plans.
Mayor Brotherton added that to his knowledge, there was no arrangement made so if the City approved the preliminary plans, that C-C-I-C-S would drop the law suit they filed against the city, but that’s what he expects to happen.
C-C-I-C-S received the OK from the Taylorville Planning Commission, for both the initial plans, and the preliminary plans, for the proposed Hathaway Homes subdivision, earlier this year. The Taylorville City Council initially denied approval of the initial plans, then at another meeting approved them, but then denied approval of the preliminary plans. Those are the plans the Council vote 8 to nothing, to approve Monday night.
