Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • Public Works Director Larry Coloni reported to the board at the Aug. 18 meeting that his crews are hard at work with pavement stripping, spraying weeds and trimming and mowing. In addition, they’ve been busy installing the scoreboard on Diamond No. 4.
  • There is still baseball being played in Forsyth Park. In fact, you can actually hear the crack of the bat, as this group of teams is part of a wooden bat league. According to Coloni, teams come from as far away as Quincy and Peoria. They are using Diamond No. 4 on weekends from now until October.
  • Coloni reported that his seasonal staff finishes up soon. He expressed his gratitude for their hard work and noted that their dedication is one reason why the village looks so nice.
  • Trustee Kerstin Trachtenberg, chair of the Forsyth Family Fest Committee, and her hard-working crew of volunteers met earlier this week for a planning meeting. On the agenda was a discussion of things that went well at this year’s event, areas where improvement is needed and some planning for next year. The year-round dedication of this group is a big reason why the event is so successful every year.
  • Due to the Labor Day holiday, the next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is Tuesday, Sept. 2, 2014 at 6:30 p.m. in Village Hall at 301 S. Route 51 in Forsyth. Board meetings are held the first and third Mondays of the month and are open to the public.
