Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • At the Feb. 2 board meeting, Lt. Jamie Belcher of the Macon County Sheriff’s Office updated trustees on a report posted Jan. 17 on the sheriff’s office Facebook page regarding vehicle break-ins near the mall. Rather than two vehicles being involved as was originally reported, there were actually four or five cars burglarized. All the vehicles were unlocked, and a suspect is in custody, Belcher said, adding that his office worked in conjunction with the Decatur Police Department. The cars involved were at Hickory Point Mall, Best Buy and Wal-Mart Supercenter on North Prospect Drive in Decatur. Belcher said a 28-year-old female from DeWitt with a heroin addiction was arrested and is being held on $50,000 bond.
  • Belcher also reported that Deputy Chad Wayne is replacing Deputy Bart Hickey on the third shift. Belcher called Wayne “a great guy, who gets along well with people.” Belcher also said officers should have new squad cars in the next couple of months as they switch from the familiar Chevy Impalas to Ford Explorer SUVs.
  • At the Feb. 2 meeting, Mayor Marilyn Johnson appointed Emily Prather, the village’s new community and economic coordinator, to the board of directors of the Decatur Area Convention and Visitors Bureau.
  • The next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is scheduled for Monday, Feb. 16, 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.
