Items of interest from Village staff and recent Board meetings

  • The law enforcement report for the March 3 board meeting indicated that the village had been quiet with no real problems to report. The Feb. 18 report to the board indicated recent issues with kids running through Hickory Point Mall creating some problems. In response, additional officers were called in to help address the matter.
  • At the Feb. 18 meeting of the board, resident Leo Morland asked if the village receives sales tax every year in one lump sum or in installments. Village Treasurer Rhonda Stewart responded that sales tax receipts are received in installments. She said that the information is available on the Illinois Department of Revenue’s website and offered to show Morland how the process works.
  • Also at the Feb. 18 meeting, resident James Hockaday asked the board if the video recordings of board meetings are available on the village website for the public to view. Mayor Marilyn Johnson said they were not. Resident Sid Audiffred then asked why record each meeting if the recordings are not available for residents to watch. The mayor responded that meetings are recorded for the purpose of accuracy.
  • Public Works Director Larry Coloni and staff recently attended a pipeline safety seminar. The department spent the latter part of February clearing snow and repairing potholes.
  • The next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is at 6:30 p.m. Monday, March 17, in Village Hall at 301 S. Route 51. Board meetings are open to the public.
