Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • Mark your calendars so that you’re sure to vote in the upcoming Consolidated Election on April 7, 2015. Locally, there are three trustee seats up for election and five candidates running for the opportunity to serve.
  • On Feb. 26, at Homewood Suites in Forsyth, Sunrise Rotary held a press conference to thank the Village of Forsyth for being the main sponsor of the Central Illinois Regional Rotary Chili Cookoff, held Jan. 17 at Hickory Point Mall. Proceeds totaling $6,000 were donated to five organizations: Catholic Charities, Salvation Army, Red Cross, Macon Resources and Rotary International. Cathy Mitteer, mall manager, said that mall foot traffic was up the day of the event, which created greater sales tax revenues for the village.

  • The Girls Athletic Boosters are selling Trojan license plate frames. Cost is $8 for one or $15 for a pair. All proceeds go to GAB’s efforts to support and enhance athletic opportunities for female students. If you’re interested or need more information, call Tammy Brummitt, (217) 877-0891.
