Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • On Jan. 17, the Macon County Sheriff’s Office posted on its Facebook page that there were two reports of “vehicles burglarized in Forsyth. One was outside the Hickory Point Mall and the other was in the area of Best Buy.” Both vehicles were reported to be unlocked at the time of the incidents. Anyone with information is asked to call (217) 424-1311 or CrimeStoppers at (217) 423-8477 (TIPS) if they wish to remain anonymous.
  • To maintain their pesticide/herbicide licenses, Public Works employees are required to retest every three years. The training session, administered by the Department of Agriculture, took place recently in Champaign. The operator portion of the training takes one day, while Director Larry Coloni had to train for two days, he said, since he is licensed as the applicator. As applicator, Coloni is responsible for putting the right amount of chemicals on village properties. The training allows village employees to perform related pesticide/herbicide duties (including mosquito abatement) on park property, the right of way and on building exteriors.
  • After consultation with Mayor Marilyn Johnson, Village Administrator David Strohl cancelled the Monday, Jan. 19, 2015 board meeting. The reason for cancellation was that there were no matters requiring action by the board.
  • The next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is scheduled for Monday, Feb. 2, 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.
