Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • Deputy Cassandra Barnes, with the Macon County Sheriff’s Office, has joined officers working shifts out of Village Hall. She was formally introduced at the Dec. 15 board meeting by Deputy Hawkins, who said Barnes will serve the village until at least February. Barnes replaces Deputy Matthew Hunt, who recently accepted a similar position in Champaign. Once introduced, Barnes went right to work reporting to trustees about a recent egg-throwing incident in the village. Several juvenile boys, mostly Maroa-Forsyth High School students, along with a couple of boys from Meridian High School, were caught with cartons of eggs in their vehicle, she said. This came after eggs were thrown at vehicles near Forsyth Park, she added. The deputy said there appeared to be no major damage, but she would be following up to be sure. Parents have been notified, Barnes told trustees.
  • Public Works Director Larry Coloni’s report to trustees, submitted at the Dec. 15 board meeting, noted that his crews have all but finished a recent major tree-planting project throughout the village. There is one tree yet to be planted near Village Hall, Coloni noted. He also reported that he is compiling Tree City USA data for submission to maintain the village’s Tree City USA status.
  • The next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is Monday, Jan. 5, 2015 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.
