Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • Lt. Jamie Belcher of the Macon County Sheriff’s Office spoke to trustees on Sept. 8 and reported that August was a busy month for automobile burglaries with six to eight reports at both businesses and residences. One incident was noteworthy for its boldness as a vehicle was burglarized at Hampton Inn as the owners were parked in the hotel’s loading/unloading area. Belcher said all vehicles involved in these incidents were unlocked. He also said bike patrols have increased as a result, but he added there are currently no leads for suspects.
  • The village’s mosquito-fogging program continues at dusk when weather conditions permit. Ideally, the temperature should be between 60 and 85 with wind speeds below 5 mph. Larva treatment continues on street catch basins and in areas of standing water.
  • As promised, Public Works Director Larry Coloni and crews used an aerial lift and power washer last week to give the village’s moldy looking water tower the thorough cleaning it needed.
  • Disc golf course update: Coloni’s Sept. 8 report to trustees noted that baskets have arrived and are in the process of being assembled in preparation for being set next week. Coloni also reported that Public Works crews have set all 23 concrete bases.
  • The next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is scheduled for Monday, Sept. 21, 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.
