Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • Community and Economic Development Coordinator Emily Prather’s report to the board dated Aug. 3 noted that she’s had recent discussions with two potential retail businesses about possibly locating in Forsyth. She provided information to each business and reported that she’s been researching a variety of businesses and their contact information in order to touch base with them about locating here.
  • Under the heading of “A Sign of the Times,” two trustees, Steve Hubbard and Jim Peck, both mentioned at the July 6 meeting that they had seen a drone flying over village subdivisions in recent weeks.
  • While mowing season is nearing an end, James Hockaday spoke to trustees on July 20 asking that residents be reminded that grass clippings blowing in the street look unsightly. It is also true that pollution is reduced when grass clippings are kept off the streets. While organic and healthy for lawns, grass clippings are not a good thing if they end up in the storm sewer system, which could result in potential backups.
  • Public Works Director Larry Coloni’s report to trustees on Aug. 3 noted that a fire hydrant was hit by a vehicle at the intersection of Hickory Point Road and Hickory Point Drive. Coloni and staff made the repairs.
  • CHANGE OF VENUE: The next meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees on Monday, Aug. 17, 2015 at 6:30 p.m. has been moved to the Community Room at Forsyth Public Library. Board meetings are the first and third Mondays of the month and are open to the public. 
