Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • Public Works Director Larry Coloni sought the board’s approval at the Aug. 18 meeting to purchase a water-main locating device. The device uses ground-penetrating radar that makes it possible to locate pipe underground. Trustee Bob Rasho made the motion to accept staff’s recommendation, and Trustee Larry Reed seconded. The motion carried with all present voting Yea.
  • Coloni also asked the board at the Aug. 18 meeting about disposing of five fire hydrants. He said some residents had expressed interest in using them as yard ornaments, but he noted that all useful parts would be removed. Trustee Steve Hubbard was concerned they might be confused with the real thing by the fire department. Coloni said there are some in village yards now but they’re located away from the street. All votes were Yea to allow for disposal of the hydrants.
  • Deputies from the Macon County Sheriff’s office have reported a recent series of incidents involving the egging of moving vehicles in the village. At the Sept. 2 meeting, a deputy reported that the egging seems to have stopped with the beginning of the school year. There have been some reports of retail theft at the mall, but nothing more serious has been reported in recent weeks.
  • The next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is Monday, Sept. 15, 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.
