The City of Taylor is rolling out a new program that will dedicate certain parking spots in City lots to seniors, expectant mothers and veterans. The program started at City Hall, where Department of Public Services employees installed two new spaces outside the north entrance along Goddard Road.

"Many residents that regularly stop at our buildings at senior citizens or veterans, and expectant mothers deserve a break," Mayor Rick Sollars said. "We've seen these type of dedicated parking spaces in other neighboring communities, and we thought it was a good idea to bring them to Taylor. If it benefits our residents, it's a good idea."
DPS Director Keith Boc said that his department has already created about 25 of each of the signs. On November 10, Taylor Veterans Museum Chairman Jack Myers, who was getting ready to plant American flags at the gravesites of veterans buried in the community, visited the new parking spots with Matt Bonza and Glenn Nogiec of the Taylor DPW. Myers, both a veteran and a senior, likes the new idea. The museum, manned by a group of senior volunteers, is located in the atrium of City Hall.
Look for the new dedicated parking spaces to appear in other locations across the community soon.
