Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • Following a closed session of about 38 minutes, which took place at the conclusion of the Nov. 3 board meeting, trustees agreed to re-appoint Village Clerk Amy Goodman for the remaining term. The term, which runs concurrent with Mayor Marilyn Johnson’s term, ends in May of 2017. Goodman, whose position began in August, recently completed three months on the job. Trustee Bob Rasho made the motion to approve, which was seconded by Trustee Kerstin Trachtenberg. All votes were Yea. The mayor remarked how happy she was to have Goodman staying on with the village.
  • A deputy with the Macon County Sheriff’s office, in the law enforcement report to trustees on Nov. 3, noted there were no incidents to report associated with Halloween. Trustee Steve Hubbard told the board and deputies that he had gotten a lot of positive feedback from residents who’d seen Deputy Jennifer Harris handing out candy to village trick-or-treaters on Halloween night. It’s also No-Shave November whereby deputies can give up shaving for a $30 donation. The money will go to a TBD charity; last year it went to a needy family. The deputy also said that there will be an increase in manpower to discourage shoplifters during upcoming busy Black Friday shopping.
  • The next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is Monday, Nov. 17, 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.
