JEWISH TAYLOR, TEXAS:

  1. JEWISH CEMETERIES
Taylor is a city in Williamson County, Texas, United States. The population was 13,575 at the 2000 census; it was 15,191 in the 2010 census estimate.  Taylors largest employers include the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT), Durcon Inc, and the T. Don Hutto Residential Center, an immigration control center, which opened in Taylor in May 2006.

In 2006, the Taylor Economic Development Corporation (TEDC) published a "Community Report" which noted - according to information compiled by the Ampersand Agency  for the TEDC - that the City needed better code enforcement across the city, giving the city a "facelift" to look clean and neat. The report also noted that old and dilapidated buildings should be torn down to improve the consistancy of the housing market, that streets needed repair, and that effort should be made to add more consumer-based businesses.  

Some of the issues of the TEDC Community Report - for example, the conditions of many of the streets, and improving Taylor's physical appearance - are considered as "long term objectives" in the City of Taylor Budget Message (fiscal year 2010-11),  but the same document states "very little emphasis has been placed on expanding existing or adding new programs or making significant additional capital investments despite the fact that the needs certainly exist".

The condition of many of Taylor's streets has been an issue for decades. An article in the Taylor Daily Press (April, 2010) reported: "In 1948, three men ran in a City of Taylor election as 'The Peoples Ticket.' In a letter to the voting public, L.D. Hammack, Louis Kincl and R.E. Kollman told the community: 'Lets get better streets as soon as possible.' Their concerns echo the same ones we hear today: improving and paying for Taylors dilapidated streets and aging infrastructure."

In 2005, approximately twenty percent (20%) of the buildings considered as "contributing resources" to the Taylor Downtown Historic District were vacant.  The percentage of vacancies of historic buildings may have increased since 2005, with the Kincl building - one of the listed "contributing resources" - having been vacated in 2010.

Residential building permits have been declining in Taylor since 2007. In 2006, a total of 128 permits were issued with a value of $14,198,300. In fiscal year 2007-08, permits dropped by 64 and 7,295,100 less in value. Once again dropping in fiscal year 2008-09 by 11 and $951,065 less in value. In the 2009, 31 residential permits were issued with a total value of $2,724,698. For 2010 it is anticipated that 18 residential permits will be issued with an estimated value of $1,624,921. Additionally, commercial permits and growth has remained flat since 2008-09, and sales tax revenue has been declining since fiscal year 2007-08 and continues to be flat.
