  • County holds off on park improvements

     

    The Taylor County Fiscal Court will add a water spigot and key to the outside of a building at Veterans Memorial Park, and will also fix a water leak.

    Otherwise, magistrates tabled any park improvements until after they receive bids to surplus the park and decide what to do about them.
