Marina privatization debate takes shape
Taylorville residents gathered at city hall Thursday night for the City of Taylorville Lake and Airport committee meeting where aldermen discussed a proposal that could bring expanded offerings to the Lake Taylorville marina

Two possibilities were debated Thursday: One would see the city try to expand marina offerings itself, and the other explored a privatization scenario where the city would simply lease the marina property to a third party.

In the first scenario, a couple of employees from the city clerk’s office have already spearheaded a plan to make the marina more robust; they even presented a tentative proposal to the council Thursday night. In their plan, they say they would like to consider a more comprehensive upgrade to the entire marina area, including improvements to the beach and maybe even expanded recreational activities that could include the installation of giant inflatable lake toys at the beach and the rental of non-motorized equipment like paddle boats, kayaks, and the like.

Cost estimates for those projects were not available as of Thursday night.
