Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • At the Nov. 3 board meeting, Trustee Kerstin Trachtenberg presented the fireworks agreement for the 2015 Forsyth Family Fest. Melrose Pyrotechnics, Inc., based in Indiana, the same company the village used last year, will provide the fireworks show that caps off the event. The village will pay Melrose $7,500, according to the contract.
    Trustee Steve Hubbard made the motion to approve the agreement, which was seconded by Trustee Dave Wendt. All votes were Yea; the motion carried.
  • A deputy with the Macon County Sheriff’s office, in the law enforcement report to the board on Nov. 17, told trustees there were no major incidents to report. She reminded everyone that there would be plenty of law enforcement personnel on duty to cover Thanksgiving night and Black Friday to help with potential traffic problems that might come with increased shopping activity. The deputy reported retail thefts were down in recent weeks, but said that would likely change in the month of December.
  • Public Works Director Larry Coloni reported to the board on Nov. 3 that repairs to some village streets and walking trails had been completed on Oct. 28 by Dunn Company. Coloni also noted that trail drinking fountains are now shut down for the winter season.
  • The next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is Monday, Dec. 1, 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.
