Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • Public Works Director Larry Coloni reported to the board in early July that summer storms had caused lightning damage that disrupted communications from village water storage tanks. The pump station at Greenbrier had its controller hit and damaged, but it was replaced quickly since it was impossible to know if the station was functioning properly and the risk for sewage backup was high.
  • Public Works crews have been busy in the park mowing grass and painting concession stands. Some overtime work has accrued with recent callouts to the park to assist the Forsyth Youth League with a variety of tasks, including spraying for a wasp at Diamond No. 1; checking for paper towels at Diamond No. 4; and a request for product to help dry wet ball diamonds.
