Items of interest from Village staff and recent Board meetings

  • June McCormick, who was appointed as part-time village clerk at the June 16 board meeting, has accepted a new job. This reopens the search for a clerk. Mayor Marilyn Johnson made the announcement at the July 7 board meeting. McCormick, who was appointed for a three-month term, will stay on through July, Johnson said. Please see the job advertisement on Page 3 of this issue of Village Vision.
  • The Law Enforcement report to the board on July 7 included mention of an uptick in retail thefts and some instances of people entering the parks after hours and being asked to leave. A juvenile suspect has been identified as possibly being responsible for some vandalism and for some doorbell ringing; the individual has been spoken to by police.
  • The Decatur Running Club, as part of its promotion of Shoreline Classic 2014, submitted a funding request of $1,000. This marks the 25th year for the event, which is expected to draw between 1,400 and 1,700 runners. Many of the event’s elite runners use hotels in Forsyth as their base when they come to town to compete. Village Administrator David Strohl recommended the request be approved. All trustees present voted Yea. Funding will come from Hotel/Motel Tax funds.
  • Public Works Director Larry Coloni has been working to complete a street sign inventory to comply with federal highway standards. He’s working with the county to obtain funding for sign replacements, which will be required by the end of 2015.
