Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • The free annual leaf pickup program officially started Oct. 13, but since leaves were already falling, village crews got a bit of a head start, according to Public Works Director Larry Coloni. Leaf piles should be placed in the village-owned right-of-way by 8 a.m. on weekdays. No leaf pickup on holidays or weekends. Pickup is for leaves only, but tree-limb collection, which is separate from leaf pickup, continues on Mondays until the first week of December. See front page for leaf-pickup details.
  • Due to an approaching deadline of Nov. 4, as mandated by the Illinois Municipal Code, the Oct. 6 board meeting’s agenda contained an item regarding possible changes to the compensation of elected officials. There was a very brief discussion whereby it was agreed that no changes were necessary, and thus no action was taken. Annual compensation for the position of mayor remains unchanged at $4,500 and unchanged for trustees at $2,500 per year.
  • The law enforcement report to trustees on Oct. 6 included a reminder that deputies will boost staffing for Halloween night to help ensure the safety of trick-or-treaters in the village. In addition, the majority of September was described as uneventful, with a decrease in juvenile-related complaints, especially at night.
  • The next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is Monday, Oct. 20, 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.
