Town of Taylor,
As of the emergency meeting at 1:00 pm on May 9, 2020, the Taylor Board of Aldermen have voted 3-1 to allow restaurants to open at 6:00 am on Sunday, May 10, 2020, as long as they comply with state and CDC guidelines found in executive order 1478.
We believe we came up with the best compromise given information and comments received.
I would like to ask restaurants to continue to curbside service as an option for a while, as I have received many texts that some people are just not ready to dine in.
Thank you,
Christi Hardy,
There will be an EMERGENCY MEETING of the Board of Aldermen on Saturday, May 9th, 2020, at 1:00 PM.  No public will be able to attend the meeting, but we ask that you join us live on FaceBook.
Town of Taylor:
Please be advised that the Taylor Board of Aldermen met this evening and voted unanimously to continue executive order 1477 until May 11, 2020, as originally ordered.  The Board of Aldermen will meet Monday, May 11, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. to re-evaluate the on-going situation and discuss further action.
We understand that these are difficult times, but we are working to find a balance between staying safe and opening up to the community.
We appreciate your understanding with this decision.

For a town of about 320 people, Taylor Mississippi has more than its share of interesting history, culture and atmosphere. Taylor has survived good times and devastating times, and it faces the future, always changing, but always keeping an appreciation for hard work, good food and music, sociability, and a slower pace of life.

From modest beginnings as a pioneer settlement to its rise and fall with the railroad and King Cotton, Taylor endures and is now, as Faulkner put it, a “postage stamp of native soil” that attracts visitors and new residents from all over the world who come for its famous food, music and arts scene and bucolic lifestyle.
