Mayor Phipps is Taylorsville's second female mayor, currently serving her first term of office. She is dedicated to finding solutions to economic and infrastructure development.
It's that time again! The temperatures are getting cooler, the days are getting shorter... It must be fall, ya'll!
With the cooler temperatures, that also means it's time for you to find your way back home to Taylorsville for some good Tartar football!
Our homecoming parade will take place on Thursday, October 17th, beginning at 4:30PM. The parade will begin at Taylorsville High School, head south on Hester Street, then turn left on Eaton Street. The parade will then pass down Main Street before ending back at the school.
The presentation of the 2019 Taylorsville High School Homecoming court will commence at 6:00PM on Friday, October 18th. Kickoff for the game against Enterprise-Clarke will be at 7:00PM. The school would like to remind everyone that you MUST pay to enter the stadium for the homecoming presentation, and that all Smith County Schools have a no re-entry policy.

We've been getting a lot of questions concerning Trick-or-Treating in regards to Boo in the Park. We are pleased to announce that Boo is NOT replacing traditional trick-or-treating activities!
Trick-or-Treat will officially begin at 6PM on Tuesday, October 30th. During this time, we remind all residents to have both a courteous and patient mindset. There will be a lot of children on or near our streets, and with all the festivities going on, it will be your responsibility as a motorist to make sure you do their part to keep them safe. We most certainly do not want a tragic accident on our hands.
Between 6PM and 9PM, the speed limit on all city streets will be 15MPH. Remember that pedestrians always have the right of way. Taylorsville Police Department will be out patrolling more actively than usual, and may at times be running blue rights to be more visible.
We hope to see everyone outside enjoying the evening at both events!
All the best,
It's that time of year again, the temperatures are getting SLIGHTLY cooler, the days are getting shorter, it must be fall, ya'll! With the change in seasons also comes an increase in outdoor activities. Here's just a few of the events going on in Taylorsville over the next few weeks!
"Nothing Sweeter Than a Tartar Homecoming"
It's time for you to find your way back home to Taylorsville for some good Tartar football! Our homecoming parade will take place on Wednesday, October 24th, beginning at 4PM. The parade will begin at Taylorsville High School, head south on Hester Street, then turn left on Eaton Street. The parade will then pass down Main Street before ending back at the school. Following the parade, there will be a community pep rally in the City Park. Friday nights are best spent under the lights in Taylorsville, and that is true this week as well as the Taylorsville Tartars take on Clarkdale to finish out the regular season of football. Pre-game homecoming festivities begin at 6PM, with kickoff afterwards at 7.
