Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • A deputy with the Macon County Sheriff’s office, in the law enforcement report to the board on Dec. 1, told trustees there had been five to seven recent retail thefts. One of those ended in a footchase that resulted in the suspect rolling a vehicle approximately five or six times on the west side of the mall. An arrest was made, and remarkably, the suspect, who is now in jail, was uninjured. It was announced that Deputy Matthew Hunt, who began with the department in December of 2012, has taken a job in law enforcement in Champaign. Deputy Cassandra Barnes is scheduled to take Hunt’s spot with the village.
  • Public Works Director Larry Coloni’s report to trustees, submitted at the Dec. 1 board meeting, noted that his crew has snow removal equipment ready for the snow season while liquid anti-icing of intersections and curves has begun. Re-development of the snow removal plan is also a priority, Coloni noted. He also reported that water treatment plant computers are more than 9 years old and due to be replaced this fiscal year. With that in mind, he has asked the IT contractor to examine what it will cost to upgrade from Windows XP to Windows 7 or 8.
  • The next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is Monday, Dec. 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.
