Items of interest from village staff and recent board meetings

  • At the Sept. 21 board meeting, Sgt. Michael Hawkins of the Macon County Sheriff’s Office updated trustees on recent automobile break-ins at Hampton Inn and Fairfield Inn saying that there is a juvenile suspect from Tennessee who was staying at one of the hotels when the crimes were committed. Hawkins also reported that on Sept. 19 a call came in regarding a suspicious package in the park that was described as a possible bomb. One of the deputies recognized it as a foam roller, which is a piece of exercise equipment.
  • Resident Steve Scott who lives on Forsyth Parkway spoke to trustees about the new disc golf course in Forsyth Park. Scott said he supports the course, but his concern is that one hole is closer to his backyard than he thought it would be. He said it has created foot traffic and caused disruption. He requested the hole be moved closer to the pond. Public Works Director Larry Coloni said the hole is 150 feet from Scott’s property, but he thought new signage will help when it’s installed. Scott said discs don’t adhere to the 150-foot boundary. Trustee Bob Gruenewald suggested trimming long grass on one side to encourage players to play away from Scott’s property.
  • The next regular meeting of the Forsyth Board of Trustees is scheduled for Monday, Oct. 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.
