Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • Clarification: Planning and Zoning Commission Chairman Bill Busbey, speaking to trustees at the Oct. 20 meeting of the board, pointed out quite correctly that readers of the Oct. 16 issue of Village Vision may have gotten the idea that Connie’s Greenhouse is allowed to store cars, trucks, boats and motorcycles in its building with the recent passage of Ordinance No. 925. Not true. While the business may have asked to store all these items in their special use permit request form, the ordinance only allows for storage of automobiles and boats; no trucks or motorcycles are allowed. “We don’t want Connie’s to get inundated with calls from motorcycle owners when they’re not allowed,” Busbey said. Thank you to Chairman Busbey for the clarification.
  • The law enforcement report to trustees on Oct. 20 included a reminder that deputies plan to boost staffing for Halloween night to help ensure the safety of trick-or-treaters in the village. An extra deputy will be on duty until 2 a.m. and then, “hopefully everyone will be tucked safely into bed,” a lieutenant with the Macon County Sheriff’s Office told trustees. He also reported that our area had escaped with no damage from three late-season tornadoes that were recently reported in the county.
  • The next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is Monday, Nov. 3, 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.
