TAYLORVILLE — During Wednesday’s meeting of the Taylorville Township Board, it was announced they will not be eligible for CURE’s (Coroniavirus Remediation Emergency Support) Act funds.
Township Supervisor Billie Heberling said $180,000 was available and the former supervisor requested approximately $18,000 and filled out the paperwork for front-line workers. The town- ship doesn’t have any employees that are considered front-line workers.
Heberling contacted a representative to inquire how the township could still receive the funds. If the township had an increase in the general assistance fund, they would have still been eligible. They did not have an increase in that fund so they will not receive any of the CURE’s Act funds.
The board provided an update on the IRS issues stemming from a 2018 form that wasn’t properly filled out. Heberling contacted the IRS and they received the current paperwork, however, they are behind right now. The paperwork hasn’t been processed so the board is awaiting a decision.
Kim Brune from Davis Memorial Church, Taylorville, discussed a partnership with the township. Brune runs the Clothes Closet located in Davis Memorial Church.
The Clothes Closet provides vouchers for those in need of clothing. The township will assist Brune by possibly providing a space for more clothes and getting donations.
