Taylorsville City leaders held their 12th annual awards banquet on March 28 to recognize exemplary employees and residents for 2007. Mayor Russ Wall and the City Council, assisted by the city youth ambassadors, presented 13 awards throughout the evening.
State Sen. Karen Mayne received an award for meritorious service to the community as a legislator and a community volunteer award.
"Sen. Ed Mayne passed away last November," Wall said. “Fortunately for us he had a partner, his wife Karen, who was willing to ﬁ ll those big shoes." Mayne has been instrumental on the state level for supporting mobile home legislation. "The best tribute to say of them both is that they always look out for the little guy," said Wall.
